Moving Pictures by Terry Pratchett.
HarperCollins Publishers: NY, 2008.
First published by Victor Gollancz Ltd: Great Britain, 1990.

  • The Last Keeper of the Door at Holy Wood dies.

  • Memories escape from their tomb and beckon to the people of Ankh-Morpork.

  • Silverfish the Alchemist moves to Holy Wood to continue experiments with octo-cellulose.

  • They come in droves to make the moving pictures, building a new temporary city.

  • Cut-me-own-Throat Dibbler can always be found where there's a sale to be made.

  • Victor the almost passing wizard student leaves for Holy Wood. Ponder Stibbons passes, because he gets Victor's test.

  • Victor becomes the clicks' Cohen the Barbarian.

  • Not so subtle subliminal messages (advertisements).

  • "As Cut-me-own-Throat Dibbler knew in his heart, wherever two or more are gathered together, someone will be trying to sell them a suspicious sausage in a bun."

  • "Funny. You could know someone for their whole life and not realize that the gods had put them in this world to move a thousand elephants around the place."

  • The Librarian edits a film . . . with his teeth.

  • Blown Away, the Ultimate Picture, burning city and all, bound to mesmerize.

  • A click theater entombed.

  • "When five hundred crude two-elephant bobsleighs crested the ridge ten feet away at sixty miles an hour, their strapped-on occupants trumpeting in panic, they never saw the yetis until they were right on top of them."

  • Senior wizards sneaking out of Unseen University pretending to have false beards, in the hope of retaining respect.
