Haynes's believe-it-or-not

True or false, you decide.

First person to guess all the right answers wins a signed copy of Hal Spacejock (1, 2 or 3 - your choice.) Just leave your guess in the comments.

1. I never cracked open a Terry Pratchett book until after I'd written the second Hal Spacejock novel, in 2003.

6. I first read the Dirk Gently books in 2007.
