The High Meggas

Hey, guess what!

I just got my hands on a copy of A Blink of the Screen - Pratchett's collection that includes The High Meggas! Read it a couple of times, it's very interesting to compare to The Long Earth series.

I thought I could put some pages about it up on the wiki. The problem is that the universe of The High Meggas is very different to that of The Long Earth. 

We need something to distinguish them. I think template (similar to the one we have for fanfics) would be good?

Another part of that problem is that in The High Meggas there is a character called Joshua Valienté - however, he definitely isn't the same Joshua as in The Long Earth. So should I call the page about him "Joshua Valienté (The High Meggas)"? That's how wikipedia handles pages with the same name, I think that's okay?

What do you think?

Hola!

Been on vacations for a week (went surfing) so getting back online slowly :)

So how was the story? Yes, since The High Meggas seems to be the origin of The Long Earth, I guess it wouldn't be a bad idea to add some contents here.

A template that would appear on top of the screen would be the most efficient to tell people where they are like the one that goes "did you mean..."

As for the Joshuas, I like the solution you described.

Cheers!

Cool! I love surfing, it's great fun haha.

The feel of The High Meggas is pretty differnt to that of The Long Earth - it has some very cowboy-ish shootouts. I recognised a few passages from The Long Earth...TP and SB must have reused them.

Before I make any new pages, I'm going to write a summary of the plot for "The High Meggas" article, I think :)

Man, that feeling of surfing the wave, never felt something similar in my life. Too bad I can't do it more often.
