This forum needs a few games, so here's one for starters. I may add more, depending on how popular this proves.
Dead simple - give the title and author(s) of a book which has some connection with the previous book. If the connection is obscure, please explain. Another book by the same author does not count as a link unless there's another link as well. Example of how it might proceed below.

Monstrous Regiment - Terry Pratchett
The First Blast of the Trumpet Against the Monstruous Regiment of Women  -John Knox
The Scottish Regiments - Diana Henderson
44 Scotland Street - Alexander McCall Smith

Colour of Magic, The Late Great Sir Terry Pratchett.

The very first book in the Discworld series and which introduces us to Rincewind, the most cowardly hero on Discworld.

Quote
Rincewind shivered. He was not, of course, an atheist; on the Disc the gods dealt severely with atheists. On the few occasions when he had some spare change he had always made a point of dropping a few coppers into a temple coffer, somewhere, on the principle that a man needed all the friends he could get. But usually he didn't bother the Gods, and he hoped the Gods wouldn't bother him. Life was quite complicated enough.

Raising Steam-The late great Sir Terry Pratchett.

Now this book was a wonderful read if you are a fan of steam trains and a fan of Micheal Portillo's Great railway journeys, Pratchett also gives a gentle nod to Bradshaws guide which Portillo uses in his travels around our little island.

I cant say enough about this wonderful book, it is a fun read and as always with Pratchett educational, it has steam trains ( who doesn't like a steam train ) engineering, suburban expansion, terrorism, fundamentalism.

Dear Robbie,

So many to choose from but I think my favourite book featuring Death has to be "Hogfather" which has one of my favourite lines "where the falling angel meets the rising ape" and of course written by the late great Sir Terry Pratchett.
