话说合作小说之风越来越浓了哈,感觉《好兆头》就不怎么好看。

期刊是最近一二年〇四期的,上面先说这是科幻……然后讲故事内容……最后来了一句“这还是碟形世界”,有人听说过这本书吗。

找到了,在这儿,WIKI里的。

The Long Earth is an announced collaborative science fiction work (one book has been announced, others are planned) by British authors Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter. Both Pratchett and Baxter are internationally renowned award winning authors but have made their names in very different fields of literature. Baxter has written in fields of 'hard science', evolutionary speculation and alternative history. Although Pratchett has written some science fiction, he is primarily known for his fantasy series of Discworld novels. Whilst little plot detail of the book has been released, it is known that travel between the earths may be both by typically 'sci-fi' and 'fantasy' methods. Although both authors have spoken publicly about the outline for the novel, no public readings of any material have been given (something which Pratchett frequently does at Discworld conventions).
Pratchett has announced on Twitter the completion of the first draft of The Long Earth. Publication by Doubleday has been announced for first quarter of 2012.
The UK release date for the Kindle has been announced as 21 Jun 2012 according to Amazon.co.uk

Plot summary
The 'Long Earth' is a (possibly infinite) series of parallel worlds, similar to Earth. The "close" worlds are almost identical to 'our' Earth, others differ in greater and greater details, but all share one similarity: on none are there, or have there ever been, human beings. The books will explore the theme of how humanity might develop when freed from resource constraints: one example Pratchett has cited is that wars result from lack of land - what would happen if no shortage of land (or gold or oil or food) existed?
