Literary Lines–June 25

“So, apparently, I’m a postmodern fantasy writer.  I think this is because I’ve got a condom factory in Anhk-Morpork.  Admittedly, the troll that does all the packing wonders what the women are laughing about when he is packing the ‘Big Boys’.  But you cannot imagine a condom machine in Middle-earth.  Well, actually, I can, regrettably.  But you certainly can’t imagine one in Narnia, and nor should you.  But the curious thing is that Ankh-Morpork can survive this.  Ankh-Morpork does survive most things.”

–from page 68 of Terry Pratchett’s A Slip of the Keyboard
