Lords and Ladies

Another Terry Pratchett. I generally have several lying around half-finished. This one is VERY loosely based on Midsummer Night's Dream. The witches are the main characters and so is the tiny kingdom of Lancre. A few quotes:

Much human ingenuity has gone into finding the ultimate Before.
The current state of knowledge can be summarized thus:
In the beginning, there was nothing, which exploded.

Shoot the dictator and prevent the war? But the dictator is merely the tip
of the whole festering boil of social pus from which dictators emerge; shoot
one, and there'll be another along in a minute. Shoot him too? Why
not shoot everyone and invade Poland?

Lords and Ladies. Terry Pratchett. Harper Torch. 2002
