      The Essential Terry Pratchett
      by Andrew M. Butler

      In Britain it has been estimated that 10% of all books sold
      are fantasy. And of that fantasy, 10% is written by Terry
      Pratchett. So, do the sums: 1% of all books sold in Britain
      are written by Terry Pratchett.

      So throwing caution to the wind, let's enter a world where
      the Librarian is an orangutan, luggage has legs, and where
      Death may come to visit, on his holidays. A world which is
      flat and balanced upon elephants stood on the back of a
      giant turtle. Welcome to Discworld.

      The success of the best-selling Discworld series has been
      so phenomenal that there have been radio serialisations,
      tv adaptations, numerous plays, dozens of audiobooks,
      pottery figures, calendars, diaries, an encyclopedia, a
      couple of computer games, a quizbook, a CD of music
      inspired by the Discworld, several fanzines, newsgroups,
      fanclubs and a couple of Discworld Conventions. There
      was even a whole volume of criticism discussing Terry
      Pratchett's work. And this one makes it two.

      Oh, and we've included information about all Terry
      Pratchett's other work as well.

      Andrew M Butler is co-editor of Vector, lectures in film
      and media studies at BCUC and is the author of
      Pocket Essentials on Philip K. Dick and Cyberpunk.

      (I note from the author's introduction that half of all the
      royalties he earns from the book are being donated
      to the Orangutan Foundation.)

      9) MEN AT ARMS SCRAMBLE
      by CatTigerLi

      Instructions: Make sure you are reading this in "Arial" font. Print this out
      if you can (much easier that way). Unscramble the words to the right and
      write them in the spaces to the left. Take the numbered letters and place
      them in their spots in the "answer" spaces. Unscramble that word to get the
      answer to the trivia question. Go on, it's fun!

      Question: Who said, "And, my word, what a splendid bitch," in Men At Arms?
