I love the luggage and initially I was going to do that.
We might do a seperate run of background or underappreciated characters and look at the luggage.

Margo That sounds great Paul :-)

Lovely post Paul! Vimes is a brilliant character, I love his relationship with the Patrician. I think I still have a couple of Watch books still left to read - better remind myself which they are :)

Night Watch is one of my favourite books ever. Its pretty much all Vimes and brilliant for it.
Love that guy. :-)
Definitely a series worth reading through. Aside from the watch books he also appears in Monstrous Regiment and a few bit roles in other books so he crops up. The relationship he builds with the Patrician is brilliant .
I also enjoyed the understated love story for him and Sybil. Such a good couple

Larry Coreia comes to Comic Con every year, so that's cool for him.

Thank you Jessica. I've heard DragonCon described as Mardi Gras for geeks, and for me at least, it's always lived up to that.

Margo Lancer has nearly convinced me to try Cromwell but the narrator he uses (can't rememder his name) has such a droning voice that I don't think I'd manage to stay awake.
