- well, yr hmbl srppnt. can recommend various series, one-offs and
even entire oeuvres of different authors writing in various fields -
though i must admit i'm not entirely sure oeuvres grow in meadows,
ploughed fields, on ranches nor steppes - not even the back steppes.
- none is a substitute, nor a replacement for the discworld series, nor
for any particular novel within it, nor any other of terry's novels; but
these have something, or things, somehow in common with his work:
starting with ''the silver pigs'', the falco series by lindsay davies
(historical novels set in a present-day of vespasian's rome, whose
viewpoint character is a working-class republican who doesn't like
emperors, knows he can't, as a private informer (nearest comparison,
a private detective) scraping along, do anything about that, and how
he gets accidentally caught up in uncovering a scheme to defraud
vespasian... or worse.
- falco has a lively sense of humour, especially when he's not being
threatened, tortured, manipulated, or made too big a fool of by some
- more suggestions, in fantasy, sf, or other historical novel series?
- love, ppint.
'tis due to ppinqueans that set light
