A long while back, I thought I might try to read some of Mr. Terry Prachett's works, as I'd read Good Omens and loved it. I don't even remember which book I tried to read, but I couldn't get into it at all. I don't read much high fantasy, and if it doesn't grab me pretty quickly, then I don't bother.

Well, over on the book club the other week, warsop mentioned Terry Prachett. I asked if she might be willing to provide a list of books of his than aren't part of a series and would stand on their own. She did, and that is how I ended up checking out Going Postal, which I've just finished, and which was just amazing. I think I'm converted. Now I have to figure out what of his to read next. :)
