      1) NEW DISCWORLD NOVELS FOR 2004

      Colin Smythe, Terry's agent, reported in our last issue:

      Terry's second Tiffany Aching novel is to be called A HAT FULL OF
      SKY.   Granny Weatherwax features much more in this book than she did
      in WEE FREE MEN.   It will be published simultaneously in Britain and
      the US at the end of April or beginning of May 2004.

      Jennifer Brehl at HarperCollins now reports:

      Terry has recently finished his YA novel (to be published early
      next year by our Children's division), and has recently started
      his new adult novel, GOING POSTAL. That will be published
      next fall.

      ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

      2) ONE-VOLUME BROMELIAD TO BE RELEASED IN U.S.

      According to HarperCollins, The Bromeliad Trilogy will be released
      for the first time in the US in one volume. The three books,
      Truckers, Diggers, and Wings, follow the Nomes' search for
      safety, a search that leads them to discover their own astonishing
      origins and that takes them beyond their wildest dreams. If you
      live in the US, you can enter a competition to win the book from
      http://www.terrypratchettbooks.com/books/contest_bromeliad.html
