Okay. First off. I cannot believe that you have babies. I can't even fathom why you live in Saskatchewan. I missed you terribly. Still married to Bob, Zach is going to be 17 and Bailey is 15. Lots of pictures. Lots of stories.

I found your review lucid and insightful.
You're spot-on about associating Reacher Gilt with Conrad Black (my nickname for him is Lord Crosspatch) and you're the only one I can find on the internet who's done that.
Experience has taught me however, that if an author paints an accurate portrait of a knave, it is rarely cautionary. It is often based on their "autobiography" or someone they admire. The apple doesn't fall too far from the tree and all that.

I'm teaching myself to write fantasy and love to hear what other people like and don't like about the genre. Specifically, would you care to make any further comments on what you like or don't about Pratchett's work? For instance, do you feel that it could use a woman's touch, or is the mix about right? What would you like more of, or added, or less?
You have a very active life, but if my questions are too much, then please ignore this. If you would enjoy putting your thoughts down, I would be very interested.

Thanks for the really interesting comments, Sue. Nice to meet you. I'll post something more about my ideas on fantasy when I get a moment to come up for air, and sort out my thoughts into something intellibible.
