"He is the keeper of The Universal Clock, for whom the big hand only goes round once, ticking off the moments until the end of everything." - possible reference to They Might Be Giants song "Universe Man"? ("he's got a watch with a millenium hand, an eon hand, and eternity hand"). We know Pterry likes TMBG since Foul Ole Ron uses "millenium hand and shrimp" as one of his catch phrases?

And TMBG crop up in Soul Music under the pseudonym of "We're Definitely Dwarves", so I'd support the contention that TP knows of this band!--AgProv 21:08, 16 September 2007 (CEST)

But TP has recounted how he found "millennium hand and shrimp" with an early random phrase generating computer program, and Azrael's clock has only one hand. --Old Dickens 21:57, 21 October 2011 (CEST)
It didn't only have one hand, it's just that the universe hand only goes around once. --Confusion 02:52, 28 October 2011 (CEST)

In the article his name is sometimes spelled Azreal and sometimes spelled Azrael. Which is correct or more correct? --Confusion 22:19, 20 October 2011 (CEST)

Think Michael, Raphael, who are Archangels of the Jewish faith as practiced in Israel, wherein Azrael is a name for the Angel of Death who, like the Lady, should not be invoked aloud. --AgProv 03:27, 21 October 2011 (CEST)

I'll remove the misspellings, then. --Confusion 03:18, 22 October 2011 (CEST)

Apparently they have been changed already. --Confusion 03:20, 22 October 2011 (CEST)

It says that Azrael is a "great old one". Where is this version mentioned? --Confusion 21:23, 23 November 2011 (CET)
