No.

The three meanings of 'snuff' that I know of are:

1) Stuff made from tobacco leaves. People who use it generally sniff it up through their nose.

2) Extinguish a light. In the old days people would 'snuff' out a candle by putting a little metal helmet over the flame and starving it of air to burn.

3) Death. 'To snuff someone out' is the same as 'to kill someone'.

Edit: Forgot to ask, but does anyone have a clue what that thing on his shoulder might be?

Do you think it could be Mr Nutt from Unseen Academicals? I won't say what he is (it'd be a HUGE spoiler - and ruin the whole book if you haven't read it) but I suspect it could be him.

I doubt it, it's kind of small and I though Nutt was roughly human size.

Of course, it could be a baby of his kind....

Actually Mr Nutt changes in size several times throughout the book. It's been a while since I read it, but I seem to remember him as being smaller in the beginning and becoming bigger a various points later on. And he was thought by most people (including himself) to be a goblin and I always thought of goblins as smaller than humans.

I thought he started off being slightly smaller than a human to being bigger than one...

Anyway, I just found out that Unseen Academicals is going to be the next book to be adapted for TV/Sky.

aaargh! I just realised I've completely forgotten the plot of I shall wear midnight.
I am disappointed in myself, I've taken pride in the fact that I can at least vaguely remember the storyline of each of the books. and now I've gone and forgotten one!

So apparently there is a new PTerry book out in September, called 'Dodger'.

It's not based in Discworld, but Victorian London.

...

Not sure if anyone else cares...

I came across a teaser for Dodger, and I think it sounds interesting - I'm hoping that it'll be at my local library soon, so I can read it.

I got it for my birthday last year. It's a lot darker than the Discworld novels, but still quite enjoyable.

So for the first year ever, the latest TP novel will not be out in time for my birthday.

I feel so lost.

I adore the Discworld series; I have read them all and have an entire shelf dedicated to displaying my full collection biggrin.gif All the books, and especially all the characters, are pure brilliant. I can honestly say that Terry Pratchett is my hero. My absolute favourite characters would be Bilious the oh god of hangovers (He's just hilarious!), Death, Commander Vimes, Seargeant Angua and Susan Sto Lat, and my favourite TP book would have to be The Hogfather. I also love The Dark Side Of The Sun, Strata, Dodger, and the Bromeliad Triology out of Terry Pratchett's non-Discworld novels smile.gif Next I'll work on collecting The Science Of Discworld books, I read the first one and found it very interesting.
