Much to my joy (hurrah! hurrah!) Pterry is back on Twitter (username is @terryandrob). He is looking for a speaker of Tibetan for his next book, and asks for people to spread the word/get in touch if they know someone. I'm not sure how people should contact him if they're not on Twitter, but I just asked and if I get a reply, I'll post it here.

I wonder if Tom Baker still has that Teach Yourself Tibetan book?

I work with someone who's said he can help- I've tweeted Pterry, but if you hear of other ways of contacting him then let me know?

Well, if you hadn't posted on LJ I wouldn't have found out! Just think, Pterry wouldn't have been able to create his next story without us...

Just the fact that he's working on a next book is enough to make my day.

The big question is, is this for another Discworld/History Monks book, or is it something for the Stephen Baxter parallel worlds book?

I'm kinda hoping for the latter.

I'm assuming the latter? Actual-Tibetan sounds not very Discworld, compared to the History Monks. Whereas Actual-Tibetan sounds perfect for Long Earth- we already know he wanted to write about Native Americans in non-occupied US, having Tibetans without China sounds a similar idea? Or something like that?
