(Have you read "The Science of Discworld"? Somehow I'd love to know what you'd make of it.)

I side-stepped the science of Discworld while i was reading the series for the first time but your review has me reconsidering that. I'm going to be re-reading the Grimes stories this year so I may put this book alongside it.

I think Pratchett deserves more recognition for the system of thought behind his Discworld novels. He consistently promotes the acquisition and practical application of knowledge as something that makes the world better but he never loses sight of its potential to cause damage. The Witches, The Wizards, Vetinari, Grimes all understand this in different ways. I find it fascinating.
