... and that really sucks.

As a Pratchett fan I am willing to wait.

Of course this could be due to the fact that the publishers website lists a higher price than the one amazon had when I ordered it. - call me suspiciously minded

I spoke to a woman at my local independent book shop. She contacted the publishers who said that the book would now not be released until Oct 2008. Is this conected to his illness ?

No - my agent says it's apparently due to a monetary disagreement with the illustrator - who wants co-ownership of the Discworld books - though this has only come up now that TP is ill. She definitely said Discworld books in the plural (as in the entire series) - it looks like the money grabbers are already out.

This is different to what my agent said. Admittedly I don't necessarily trust her judgement (the last deal she suggested was not one even a beginner would accept), but she doesn't usually lie to me and she always has the inside line on what's going on. Mind you, gossip within the publishing world is intense and if you've spoken to Mr Player you must have a better track than my agent.
