Just Absolutely Creamed By A Horse Truck. Flattened, Pancake-Style, By A Horse Truck. Smooshed, Lethally. Vehicular Horse Truck Manslaughter. It's Ok Though We're Cute Horses Who Watch TV Now

Aaaaand let's go to our ranking list....

OHHHHH AND WE HAVE A NEW NUMBER ONE!!! Small Gods takes the top of the list! Will another Discworld novel be able to unseat it from its lofty throne? Only time will tell...

SMALL GODS! Teeny tiny little gods. Just the itsy bitsiest little gods you've ever seen in your friggin' life. One look at these gods and we guarantee you're gonna think, "holy guacamole, do they even MAKE gods this small?!" A new DISC COVERERS ep is live! anchor.fm/discpod/episodes/13-

Just cut our episode about SMALL GODS, so expect that soon! On a related note, all four of us were various flavors of Christian growing up, so we'd love to hear perspectives on this (EXTREMELY About Christianity) book from folks who grew up in other religions.

What did you think? Did its themes feel universal, or slightly too specific to relate to? These are questions we can't answer ourselves, so we're always down to read mail on the air from folks who've walked different paths than ours! <3

SLIGHT UPDATE: it appears that I fucked up the numbering system on the graphic above, so before I get anyone in the replies going "HEYYYYY UMMM EXCUSE MEEE", here is the corrected version

AAAAND LET'S GO TO THE RANKING!

WITCHES ABROAD was, to put it very succinctly, not without its problems, but was ultimately what could be described on a cover blurb as " a rollicking romp". It's sliding in at #4, right under MORT-- the leader of the middle of the pack. Not bad!

Presenting our first bonus episode! June, Zoe and ▓▓▓▓ get together to discuss JOHNNY AND THE DEAD, a book with very similar anticapitalist themes to Reaper Man but set in England and based on a fucked up thing that actually happened. Wow! anchor.fm/discpod/episodes/Bon

thankfully, after the roller coaster ride of the front cover, the back has my personal favorite Terry Pratchett about-the-author photo: the friendly, reassuring face of Hat Terry. it's like he's telling me that, somehow, everything's going to be okay

1. while I have a deep fondness for the Harper Prism "Metallic" DW run from reading a bunch of them at my local public library as a teen, I didn't know they came in PAPERBACK
2. TEETH??
3. cover blurb by Piers Anthony, the fucked up negaverse Terry Pratchett
4. SORRY, TEETH??????

shit looks like a Danielle Steel cover on acid, is2g

Show thread

recording our Witches Abroad ep later today, but i needed to tweet here about the copy of Lords And Ladies I got in the mail today from Alibris, sight unseen. it's not so much a cover as it is An Experience

@discpod Just finished the new episode, going to have to reread Reaper Man now!

Y'all are amazing :blobcat_aww:

(BTW, FUN ANNOUNCEMENT: join us SOON for an exciting BONUS EPISODE from our host @junebug and some special guests, where they re-analyze REAPER MAN as a treatise on capitalism and austerity. Real BIG brain shit. Stay tuned for it!)

Show thread

But listen. We know some of you don't care about words. You only care about RANKS. And as for where REAPER MAN fits on the big board, looks like it's...

Right up top! Wow! A thoroughly delightful book and an excellent on-ramp for anyone looking to get into the series.
