Our readers who are also fans of the Discworld series have something in common with that series' author. Apparently Terry Pratchett is a fan of the Wing Commander series. That might not be big news, but he's apparently a big enough fan that the alt.fan.pratchett Newsgroup FAQ makes a special mention of it.
He also used to own an Amstrad, and is a fan of the classic isometric perspective games, Batman and Head Over Heels, as well as being a ZX-81 maniac. He is a declared fan of the Wing Commander series and also is quite fond of the game Doom. Future historians of computer science will probably look upon his extensive collection with awe.
According to dejanews the group which he posts to the 3rd most is alt.games.tombraider so he probably plays that as well.
