Terry Pratchett: Pyramids — Halloween Bingo 2019, Eighth Extra Square (Monsters) & Discworld October Group Read

 

I haven’t decided for which bingo square I’ll be using this, but from the blurb and from what I’ve read so far, it will fit — at a minimum — the Supernatural, Creepy Crawlies, Deadlands, Monsters, Ghost Stories, Relics and Curiosities, Murder Most Foul, and Grave or Graveyard bingo squares; possibly / probably also Spellbound, Demons, Cryptozoologist, and / or Doomsday.

ETA: I ended up using it for the “Monsters” square.

This has a bit of an odd beginning, but I have to say I find the description of the inner workings of the Assassins’ Guild and their final examination procedures weirdly fascinating, and it promises to be a rather merciless takedown of religion in general and the Egyptian death cult in particular.

Reading Progress Update: 60% (approximately)

The fastest insect [on the Disc] is the .303 bookworm.  It evolved in magical libraries, where it is necessary to eat extremely quickly to avoid being affected by the thaumic radiations.  An adult .303 bookworm can eat through a shelf of books so fast that it ricochets off the wall.”

Hehehe.

This is turning out hugely enjoyable — and yet another one of Pratchett’s books that resonates extremely well with the world we’ve been living in since 2016.

J.R.R. Tolkien: The Hobbit – Performed by Andy Serkis

Like its magnificent sequel, The Hobbit is, I think, many things to many people: the first exposition of the universe that would become Middle-earth; prelude to The Lord of the Rings; a bite-sized visit to Middle-earth whenever you don’t feel up to the full blow of the War of the Ring(s); one of the most […]

J.R.R. Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings – Performed by Andy Serkis

In another online community, we recently talked about the new Andy Serkis Lord of the Rings recordings.  Well, it turns out that the pull of The Ring is still mighty strong, for however much it may have been destroyed in Mount Doom. I had barely gotten my hands on these audios and I found I […]
