  Equal Rites - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Equal Rites is a comic fantasy novel by Terry Pratchett.
The closest thing to mentions of the book that occur later in the series are in Lords and Ladies, when Granny mentions to Archchancellor Mustrum Ridcully of Unseen University that she has been there a few times before and in Maskerade where she surprises Nanny Ogg by revealing that she has stayed at Rosie Palm's.
The French translation continues the theme of the number 8 with the title La Huitième Fille (lit: The Eighth Daughter).

Equal Rites is the third Discworld book, and spies inform me that at least two more are in preparation.

In the final seconds of the ballet, the Chosen Ones wind up at the bottom of a primeval rugby scrum; until then the corps engages in a half-hour frenzy of arm-waving, squat-thrusts and wind sprints.

Whereas gay rights in terms of gay marriage is a movement for a special group of Americans,” said Rep. Artur Davis, Alabama Democrat.
Ironically, as I suggested here about a year and a half ago, one of the reasons many people oppose gay rights is precisely because they see, or fear that that there will be, a parallel with the civil rights movement for fls.
I have long suspected that many Americans oppose equal rights for gays because they have seen earlier demands for equal rights morph into demands for preferences.

In that interview Terry said that one thing which had tickled him about Josh Kirby's artwork for the Equal Rites cover was that it subliminally (accidentally?) reflected the Freudian overtones of the book (references to "hot dreams", the angst of adolescence, things that might be called "magic" envy)...
Kirby's artwork "coincidentally" draws Esk with the broom handle where a penis would be (traditionally supposed to be the basis of the "witches flying around on broomsticks" myth).
The Necrotelicomnicom is another reference to the Phonebook of the Dead (see the annotation for the dedication of Equal Rites), but is also a pun on the evil book of the dead Necronomicon, used by H. Lovecraft in his Cthulhu stories.

This is the fourth Discworld Novel I've read (there are currently THIRTY Discworld Novels!), and I've found the later books to be funnier and of higher consistent quality - but, these first books are still interesting, and this one made me laugh a few times.
One of the things that make the Discworld books so enjoyable, is the characters are so likeable; and the two main characters in EQUAL RITES are definately quite likeable - Esk, the accidental Wizard child prodigy, and Granny the Witch.
