Hello from a Community Newbie

Howdy folk,

Just discovered this community, and thought I'd sign up. I'm a huge Discworld fan, living in Adelaide, and have been reading Pratchett's books for erm, 14 years now. Got a very very very large collection (almost everything, but a few things missing) and have had to rely a lot on my friends to get me to read books by other authors!

I've also, in past, been heavily involved in Discworld plays with Unseen Theatre Company, although not for a few years now. They've got a production of "Jingo" coming up soon, which I'm not involved with in any way, but will probably go to see it at some stage.

I've participated in a few Discworld online communities over the year, including and Addicted to Discworld. Through these I've also found out - and followed since its inception - the Australian Discworld Convention - Nullus Anxietas being held in Melbourne next February. This is probably going to be the biggest opportunity for all us Ecksian fans to get together and meet each other, and do exclusively Discworld-y things, and meet Terry, in case you've missed out doing so on his previous Australian tours.

Terry hasn't been to Adelaide since 1997, so that's the last time I met him in person - every time since he's come to Australia, he's had to miss Adelaide, which kind of makes us feel left out, but I can understand the time pressures of an Australian tour, so I'm just happy that the first, erm, 20 or so of my books have been signed, but now there's more unsigned than signed, because he just keeps writing so much stuff! And it's all good :)

So that's my intro for now... sorry for the subtle advertising, but I figure I'm not actually on the organising/supervisory committee for any of the links, I just happen to know about them and like them :)

All the best!
