Well, I didn't start reading Pratchett until 1996, when I guy I worked
handed me _Good Omens_ and told me I'd like it. I doubted it, but he
was right. To say the least.
Then it took a while before it occurred to me that if I liked Gaiman and
Pratchett working together that I should try Pratchett working alone.
But there were certainly paperbacks available in the USofA by then,
so this anecdote has no value as a general statement.
