===Notes===


This book is a German language release only and there is no English or other language release it is also available in paperback. Thsi book could be of value to non German speakers for several reasons: as a collectors item, for the illustrations by Josh kirby, this book in both harback and paperback is far more readily available than Once More* With Footnotes, and finally this version is cheap, really cheap, compared to its extremely rare and expensive predecessor. As such this version may be the only chance by some Pratchett fans to at least own a version of Once More* With Footnotes without having to pay a [[dwarf]]s fantasy in money.
