The Watch doing any kind of detective work is always fun! Nobbs learns a bit more about love, and Vimes learns once again that he is bought and sold.

Jingo by Terry Pratchett

Now I know which titles to grab off his shelves! No eyes at all. Oh, Nobby Nobbs also gets in touch with his feminine side, and develops a longing for a relationship not that a suitable partner reveals herself.

June 20, An ancient island appears halfway between Klatch and Anhk-Porpork and a jinngo is brewing.


I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. It turns out that he didn’t have a didcworld in the late 90s after all; he was just producing work that was so much more than the light comedy I was expecting that I simply couldn’t adjust my frame of reference to it.

If somebody makes us look silly in front of all our peers the we automatically want to respond in kind. We have no men.

I only have so much Pratchett left. Allow Klatchians the right to be scheming bastards. The humanist propaganda — which I love — is dicsworld as graceful as I remember.

Jingo / Discworld – TV Tropes
