More on Terry Pratchett and Discworld Not So Different From Our World

I was just tickled to read the quote from a member of the Citizens' Stamps Advisory Committee in a recent A-Hed (Wall Street Journal's offbeat feature articles), regarding postage stamps = currency and of course, that reminded me of Terry Pratchett's book Making Money about which I had previously written in this blog.

I recently heard Pratchett speak on NPR on assisted death.  The producers at NPR thought it was a good tie-in with his new book Snuff due out in the United States in October.

Again, Pratchett manages to make light of heavy subjects yet deliver some weighty opinion.
