I stand proudly as one of those who has benefited by your good works. I started, on your advice, with Interesting Times, which just swept me up in the giggles, and then The Last Hero, which I probably would have enjoyed even more if I'd read it first, rather than having the bar set high by IT.

But, lover of choice opening sentences that I am, this is the one that hooked me, reeled me in, and boated me:

"Sam Vimes sighed when he heard the scream, but he finished shaving before he did anything about it."

What's not to love?
