Just picked up Andrew M. Butler's Pocket Essentials guide to Terry
Pratchett, and was struck dumb by one of his notes on "Small Gods":

"Brutha, with his photographic memory, and the role of torture in the world
echoes Gene Wolfe's _The Book of the New Sun_ (1980-83) sequence."

This certainly never occurred to me when reading "Small Gods," Pratchett's
most sustained attack on organized religion, especially the Catholic
Inquisition, and I don't remember Pratchett ever mentioning Wolfe in ay
context whatsoever.
