For our Christmas book club, LBCWSwan has selected The Hogfather by Terry Pratchett.
‘THERE HAS TO BE SOMETHING IN THE STOCKING THAT MAKES A NOISE,’ said Death, ‘OTHERWISE, WHAT IS 4:30 A.M. FOR?’
It’s the night before Hogswatch. And it’s too quiet. Superstition makes things work in the Discworld, and undermining it can have consequences. It’s just not right to find Death creeping down chimneys and trying to say ‘Ho Ho Ho…’
It’s the last night of the year, the time is turning, and if Susan, gothic governess and Death’s granddaughter (sort of), doesn’t sort everything out by morning, there won’t be a morning. Ever again…
Apparently rewatching the Sky two parter ‘doesn’t count, Niamh’.
So yes, starting this today.
