I was pondering the formula for many discworld books. You have a world where the rules are different. Our science is not theirs. Magnetism is almost magical and electricity almost unheard of. But actual magic is the thing of scientific study. So take something, even if something as simple a postal service, a fax machine, or football, and imagine how that could be introduced and work in that very different world, from scratch. It really is a great formula. You have to wonder how many for things..

@revk The thing that gets me every time is the way light moves in Discworld. It’s a simple difference, but brilliant, and sums up , for me at least, the entire universe he created.

@jonnypencils I know. Crazy how such small changes to the way the world works can have such impact.
