Moist von Lipwig was a con artist and a fraud and a man faced with a life choice: be hanged, or put Ankh-Morpork's ailing postal service back on its feet.It was a tough decision. But he's got to see that the mail gets though, come rain, hail, sleet, dogs, the Post Office Workers Friendly and Benevolent Society, the evil chairman of the Grand Trunk Semaphore Company, and a midnight killer. Getting a date with Adora Bell Dearheart would be nice, too.Maybe it'll take a criminal to succeed where honest men have failed, or maybe it's a death sentence either way.Or perhaps there's a shot at redemption in the mad world of the mail, waiting for a man who's prepared to push the envelope...
The Science of Discworld III: Darwin's Watch (May 2005)
# 34 Wintersmith
+I do not know the scheduled release date for this book, but I'd guess May 2005 to be a likely candidate.
+ Terry read some pages from this book at the Discworld Convention 2004. It is another Tiffany Aching novel, and the bits we heard focused on Tiffany attempting to fight (at great personal risk) an unprecedented fall of snow that is threatening to kill all the livestock. There is also a wonderful scene where Tiffany gives a white kitten as a present to Granny Weatherwax.

+ I do not know the scheduled release date for this book, but I'd guess November 2005 to be a likely candidate.
+ Terry read some pages from this book at the Discworld Convention 2004. It is another Watch book, and the bits we heard focused on Vimes being, um, persuaded by the Patrician to accept a female vampire as a Watch member. Terry did not divulge major plot points, but as the title indicates, Dwarf/Troll rivalry and Koom Valley can be expected to feature.

+ This book is in the planning stages only. No scheduled release date is known.
+ Terry mentioned this novel at the Discworld Convention 2004. It will be the fourth Tiffany Aching novel, and "depending on what happens in [it]", there may be a fifth one. But either fourth or fifth book will be the last one.
