The game of " " one had me stumped as well....

I was highly amused by my two questions: "Who wrote the Game of Thrones?" and "George RR Martin wrote Game of what?"  :P

Oh gosh, am I glad to see I'm not alone with some of the books mentioned here.
First and foremost, The Book of the New Sun. My partner recommended this to me when we first started dating, and frankly it's a miracle we're still together ;), because those books are just as boring as. Nothing happens, except for a lot of ego-stroking/casual misogyny.
Perdido Street Station would have been a much better if it had been lots shorter, as it was I nearly quit a few times while reading. Same deal with Mr Norrell and Jonathan Strange. Both of these books became decent at the final hurdle, maybe I should've started reading them halfway through..

Just remember all to never underestimate a rabbit!
But isn't that easy to deal with? Just chuck The Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch at it. ;D

Welcome!
If you've ever played the Monty Python Holy Grail video game, you'll know that it isn't at all easy ;)

Thank you!

Glad I could spread the word :)

Oh dear, sounds like I will have to wait for a dragon with a poodle haircut, nifty pirate hat on and a goatee to unite the realm..

Howdy @JustLie. Is that Just Lie, or Justly?  ;D
Glad for another lurker un-lurking. Welcome to the light.
But the question: poodles or powerful goat gods?

I like it to keep my name ambiguous  ;-P
Powerful goat poodles, maybe? Never trust gods!

(please don't kill me with your goat powers!)

Hello! After a bit of lurking, I thought it was time I introduced myself. As my only other post will attest, I am an avid fan of Terry Pratchett, among many more fantasy and other writers. Currently reading The Rebirths of Tao by Wesley Chu. I also write fantasy books of my own in my spare time :)

Apologies if this has been posted already, but inspired by Going Postal some tech-savvy Pratchetteers have created a GNU-code that can be added to most websites and even email, so as to keep Terry Pratchett's name forever 'clacking' around the internet.
This website tells you how to add code: http://www.gnuterrypratchett.com
And this is for anyone who wants to know more about the origin of the code: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/books/booknews/11474455/Terry-Pratchett-will-live-on-in-the-clacks-thanks-to-fans-programming-code.html
Hope some of you will feel inspired to add the code to your website/email/blog :)
