I haven't read "The light fantastic" for a while but I don't think the troll Cohen got his teeth from actually died.--Teletran 15:46, 28 January 2007 (CET)

He doesn't, he turns to stone when it turns daylight and the luggage smashes a tooth out to get out. RT

Conina's mother is referred to as having been a temple dancer, this suggests that she is not the woman from light fantastic.--Teletran 09:58, 4 February 2007 (CET)

I have found and inserted the name of the woman in question.--Teletran 10:07, 4 February 2007 (CET)

Somewhere, is there a vague hint that Cohen may have had a run-in with the History Monks, who sent him packing from their temple, but twenty years younger to serve some past-present-future plan of theirs? Can't recall if this is explicit in one of the books, or derived as the only means of making sense of a timeline somewhere: Cohen might have got caught up in the witch-induced timeslip in Lancre in Wyrd Sisters. --AgProv 07:58, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

The issue arose because Cohen's age as given in The Light Fantastic and Interesting Times don't line up. The story Troll Bridge, however, apparently takes place in Lancre, and so somebody came up with the ingenious solution of having Cohen caught up in the timeslip. I've never heard of Cohen having a run-in with the Monks. Solicitr 16:38, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Conan's greatest wish, in turn, is a version of a (disputed) quote from the Roundworld Genghis Khan. --Old Dickens (talk) 02:19, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
