>ODWJM - DWJ goes in for a lot of "roles". Grandmother in The Game is close
cousin to several others of her ilk. Granny in F&H is a notable disexample.<

Actually what I've noticed is that where Grandmothers were usually either 
good or comically bad in DWJs early books (F&H and TotG both have "rescuer" 
Grans), her collection seems to have recently worked up to some really nasty ones. 
This one, and Gammer Pinhoe coming one after the other is a bit of a bonk on 
the head. There was an evil old bat in Conrad's Fate as well.

But then you can't help but notice how SWJ will get on a roll and follow a 
theme across 2-3 books before she drops it and moves on to another one.
