Cameos {{{cameos}}}

Dramatist, thespian, lexicographer, encyclopedist, illustrator, cartographer and huckster to the Discworld community, the busy Mr. Briggs dramatises Discworld books for the stage and performs in the resulting plays, specialising in the role of the Patrician. He has provided the voices of Discworld (and Nome) characters in more than twenty recordings. He has compiled reference books and plotted the various Mapps of Discworld, and he operates a Web store, cmotdibbler.com, selling a range of Discworld items. (However, cmotdibbler has not been available for some time. Lord Vetinari informs us by omniscope that he is "experiencing problems with technology".1)

In his spare time, he maintained his regular job in the civil service for many years (confirming our suspicions about the civil service) but he now describes himself as a former civil servant. He was born in Oxford and lives there still.

"My involvement in Discworld came about almost by accident. I was (still am) a keen member of an amateur drama club and I had adapted Monty Python's Life of Brian and Holy Grail, and Tom Sharpe's Porterhouse Blue and Blott on the Landscape for the stage. While looking for a new project, someone suggested that I might like to try the works of Terry Pratchett - and my life passed into another leg of the trousers of time!".
