>I don't think anyone would disagree that his last four books were not the best things he'd ever written but I think each character still had a strong voice and characterisation didn't suffer from The Enbuggerment. I think that what really suffered was plot. From dealing with major events on the Disc, we kind of slide sideways into
the effects of ongoing progress.  Which is a fruitful source of tension, don't get me wrong, but is somewhat less of a dramatic event than, e.g., the ascension of the first known-to-be-female Low King. 

His last two, particularly, read to me like very, very good Pratchett
fanfic.  Recognisable style, but a certain lightness of touch was lost.
Instead of leaking celebrity photos we could leak pdf versions|of college textbooks?
