Today I bought from The Works, a copy of Terry Pratchett's Hogfather, The Illustrated Screen Play, by Vadim Jean, mucked about by Terry Pratchett. Hardback. It was a bargain. Any of you who haven't got it, rush to your local The Works shop, you might be lucky & find a copy as I have. :laugh:

I bought the quiz book just before Christmas, but I didn't see this one in there then.

What happens with The Works is that their buyer buys up what is called remaindered stock. That's all the stuff that the big shops couldn't sell and were returning to be pulped. So they'll get a whole batch of books and divide them up between all their stores.

So it can be a little hit or miss if they have the same items everywhere.

Any chance they do audio books? (I've been hunting the Douglas Adams audio books read by the author)

I think you'll be very lucky to find that. It's a case of them selling whatever they happen to be able to get a hold of.

By the way, the Star Trek DVD I got coincidentally had two episodes with David Warner playing a Cardassian torturer. David Warner (of course) also played Lord Downey in the Hogfather movie. :laugh:
