In the video above, Rob Wilkins–personal assistant and friend of Terry Pratchett–reads from Pratchett’s forthcoming book, Dodger. Dodger is not a Discworld novel, but a stand alone book described as a tale of skulduggery, dark plans, and even darker deeds. Watch the live-action trailer for the book, which comes out September 2012.
