    The Colour of Magic - Part Four

    The Colour of Magic - Part Four

    DEATH, on his way to the new carnage at The Broken Drum, has bumped into Rincewind as the "wizzard" struggles with doing the right thing about the missing Twoflower.
    What should he do, and most importantly, how the flip is he going to do it? Whatever "it" is...

    The Colour of Magic - Part Three

    The Colour of Magic - Part Three

    Rincewind has been "persuaded" by the Patrician to ensure no harm befalls Twoflower during his visit. And Twoflower has been deliriously happy to see the carnage of the aftermath of a genuine Morporkian tavern brawl. 
    I really can't see anything going wrong with this at all...

    The Colour of Magic - Part Two

    The Colour of Magic - Part Two

    We return to the Discworld, in the entirely unsavoury environs of the Broken Drum. Rincewind the wizard thinks something's afoot, and Twoflower, the stranger he's trying to save from himself, is just being painfully naive. And... what is going on with the luggage?

    Thor, it would appear at least, is no more, obliterated by the new Vogon secret experimental weapon QUEST.
    However, in a moment of genius, the earthlings on Nano (including the assembled Dents, and the loons bought to the planetoid by Hillman Hunter) have been saved by Constant Mown, Prostetnic Jeltz's son, quoting law at his father.
    But what now for Arthur, Random, and Ford? And will Zaphod's trick of (no-hands) catching Thor's helmet on his head be the Sub-Etha hit he hopes?
    I'm not sure. But I do think, that this will be it. The final episode in the readings...

    Thor (following sound advice from his manager Zaphod, and the threat of unending hatred from Trillian) has NOT killed Wowbagger, even though he is now no longer mortal. Trillian and Wowbagger have, figuratively speaking, now ridden off into a beautiful romantic sunset.
    Zaphod and Thor in the meantime are on Nano, living it up at a banquet in Thor's honour, totally oblivious to the fact that the Vogons are in orbit, and preparing the obliterate the planetoid with an experimental weapon, a SECRET experimental weapon.
    Onboard the Vogon ship, The Business End, Prostetnic Jeltz is eager to see what this weapon is capable of doing, whilst his grovelling son, Constant Mown, is doing what he can to stop his father. Because, unlike most Vogons, he is not into the whole bureaucratic shindig, and would really like to discuss Country music with somebody...
