Today's teaser is from Terry Pratchett's--oh, excuse me, Sir Terry Pratchett's latest Discworld novel, Unseen Academicals (appropriate cover for this time of year, n'est-ce pas?).
Here's the teaser:
"The University Council at the time took the very decent view that it might be the moment for a leader who was not stupid, mad or dead. Admittedly, most of these are not exactly qualifications in the normal sense, but I like to think that the skill of leadership, tactics and creative cheating that I learned on the river also stood me in good stead."
Update: When I was adding the link to information about Sir Terry's knighthood, I learned he has been diagnosed with Alzheimers. Will these tragic things stop happening to my genre writers? Truly, very sad news. I wish him all the best as he battles the disease.
Previous Teaser update: I didn't have a Teaser last week because I was still plowing through Michael Caine's 400+ page autobiography, which I finally finished last week. If you want to know about absolutely anybody celebrity-wise in Hollywood or London, then this is your book. He seemed to be in the middle of absolutely everything. All I know is that I'm now in the mood to see Dirty Rotten Scoundrels again.
