alt.fan.pratchett is a newsgroup dedicated to the works of that writer of critical and popular acclaim, creator of Discworld and scribe of L-Space, Sir Terry Pratchett.
The general discussion area of the group resembles the typical English countryside, with eclectic intrusions dotting the landscape, and a disproportionately high number of pubs and bakeries. The level of detail is due to the wide range that the topics on a.f.p. cover.
It is the original home of Librarian Lady, who went there with Limp-Asparagus Lad, Retcon Lad, Fourth Wall Lass, and Kid Not Appearing In Any Retcon Hour Story to rescue her sister, Petina Witherington-Brown, and stop the plans of the Footnote Fiend to flood a.f.p. with footnotes. Afterwards, Petina joined the Legion as Footnote Girl.
Traffic has dipped over the years, but the group is still quite active, and can be read and posted to on Google Groups here, or on your local Usenet server.
