Dinre I didn't know anything about this until now. The plot sounds pretty interesting. I'll be looking forward to the Audible release.

I did notice the parallel in naming: The Discworld, The Long Earth... will The Ovoid Plane be next?

Ya, sure, as if theres only one way to read this.
Most probably it just means that it annoys you with notifications.


message 11: by Hazel (new)

Hazel heh, no, it simply appears on your newsfeed, like posts made by your friends. Its not annoying unless you decide to be annoyed by it.

Alicia Papp Pre-ordered it!!! Two Terry books in 12 months - nice :)

Keith Am I the only one that thinks some of the idea for this sound remarkably like the old TV show Sliders.

which in turn was remarkably like Quantum Leap...

Even so, with Terry Pratchett at the helm both sliders and quantum leap will (hopefully) pale in comparison.
