Reading - October 2017

Pyramids by Terry Pratchett (1989)
One of the earlier Discworld books (seventh, in fact), and teeming with ideas as usual. None of the "regular" characters appear, but the themes are familiar, as is the way the pace increases towards the end until it feels almost rushed. I bought this secondhand a long time ago but as far as I can remember, I have never read it until now, for some reason.
The Guitar Magazine (Vol 29 No 02)
Guitarist Guide to Effects Pedals edited by Owen Bailey (2013)
A mixture of useful primer and slightly pointless articles. Still interesting though.
One Fine Day In The Middle Of The Night by Christopher Brookmyre (1999)
Not read since 2014, according to my notes. No idea why. Anyway, still great. Polished it off in about a day.
Good Omens by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman (1990)
One of my favourite Pratchetts, partly because it's set in the real world (for some definition of "real", anyway). There's a Point, of course, but it doesn't overpower the story.
