Drunks, rapists, incompetent basketball coaches: an excerpt

Quote

“You have any enemies?” Chief Gray asked.

“None that ever wanted to dump a body on my lawn,” Kramer said, his gaze drifting to a framed photograph of his father on the mantel. The glass had been shattered by a ricochet, but the picture itself was still intact.

“But you do have enemies?” the chief persisted.

“Well, more like disgruntled readers,” Kramer said.

“What would they have to be upset about?”

“The Democrat reports a lot of crime stories. Lot of people don’t like it when we put their name out there for the world to see. Drunks. Rapists. Incompetent basketball coaches. We get a lot of complaints from people who didn’t get their paper delivered.”

Fans of the late Terry Pratchett will be happy to know his latest (and sadly last) Discworld book, The Shepherd’s Crown, will hit bookshelves Sept. 1. His assistant, Rob Wilkins, says Pratchett had notes for four other novels in the series. However, the family has no intentions of seeing those novels finished. His daughter, Rhianna, said: “I’ll work on adaptations, spin-offs, maybe tie-ins, but the books are sacred to dad. That’s it. Discworld is his legacy. I shall make my own.”
