YMMV: Lords and Ladies

  • Freud Was Right:
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: One American publisher completely got the wrong end of the stick and mentioned something about a football team in the synopsis (apparently a misunderstanding of the Morris Men). Pratchett dryly remarked that football was one subject he'd never write a Discworld book on. Years later, cue Unseen Academicals.
    • The description of the Elf queen's true form - triangular face, huge eyes, tiny mouth and nose - sounds rather similar to that of an anime character.
  • Recycled Script: The childhood connection between Esme Weatherwax and Mustrum Ridcully seems to be based on the one between Esme and Cutangle in Equal Rites (of course, like all early senior wizards in the series, Cutangle has presumably long since been assassinated).
