Wintersmith and Making Money…


During my recent trips I read the last two books in the Discworld series…

Wintersmith – The Wintersmith (the God of winter, sort-of) falls in love with Tiffany Aching, a young witch. If Tiffany handles it badly the discworld cold be thrown into a permanent winter. The 4th in the young adults series. I got half way through this and left the book on a plane, so I had to buy a new copy to finish it.

Making Money – Moist von Lipwig, a former conman, tries to revitalize the Ankh Morpork banking system.

I’ve been reading these books since November 2007. That’s about 19 months, which works out at roughly 1 book every 2 weeks. There is a new book out later in the year, but I’ll wait for the paperback.

So now what? I don’t really know what to read next. Any suggestions welcome… 🙂

  1. I liked the Dresden Files too. Terry Pratchett did a couple of sci-fi books too. Dark Side of the Sun was one and the other (Strata) was a bit of a Ringworld spoof.
    Oh, and I’d reinforce Good Omens (a Neil Gaiman/Terry Pratchett collaboration)

  2. I’ve just finished the First Law Trilogy by Joe Abercrombie. Very much recommended if you fancy some less comic fantasy.

    Or for some Sci-Fi try the Asimov Foundation “Trillogy” which runs at 6 or 7 books I think. I believe they are turning it into a film soon.

  3. Hi Tim,

    How about the ancient Chinese classic: Romance of the Three Kingdoms? That is on my list next.


  4. I’d recommend a spin past Tom Holt’s books too… you’ll either love ’em or hate ’em 😉
