      01) A SHORT LETTER FROM YOUR EDITOR...

      Well, here we are again, and not even two days after the main
      February issue came out! But this item simply won't wait, because
      there's a brief competition on with a very special "prize": namely,
      the opportunity to officially name a street in Ankh-Morpork! The
      winning street name will be included in the Discworld canon forever
      after. All you need is access to a smartphone, webcam or similar
      video recording device, the ability to carry a tune for a very short
      distance, access to some (not totally) secret information, and your
      imagination...

      Details are in item 2, below. Remember, this is a very brief
      competition, only six days of the week left!

      – Annie Mac, Editor

      02) NAME THAT STREET!!!

      Here be the competition announcement, exactly as posted on the
      interwebs:

      Feb 21st! Win the chance to name a street in Ankh-Morpork!

      by Terry Pratchett on Tuesday, February 21, 2012 at 2:39am

      To celebrate four months until the publication of The Long Earth we
      are giving one lucky fan the chance to name a street in Ankh-
      Morpork. That street will go into The Compleat Ankh-Morpork, a
      brand-new street directory of the Discworld city complete with
      beautifully illustrated pull-out map which will be available on the
      13th September 2012. Your street name will be forever immortalised
      in the city for all to see, who knows what will happen there in the
      future!

      To win this fantastic opportunity read the below question - and film
      yourself (or get a friend to film you) on yours (or their!) smart
      phone (web cam or other recording device) singing the first verse...


      QUESTION:

      Upon arriving in Matamata, New Zealand, what is the name of the song
      that was instinctively sung by Terry and Rob without even the need
      to pause to confer? (submitted by Sir Terry Pratchett)

      Send your video answer and chosen street name (be inventive!) to:

      discworld@... *

      *Please be aware all videos will be sent to Sir Terry and he may do
      with them as he wishes!

      Competition closes Monday 27th February.
