The first Discworld novel, revamped for a new generation of readers...
Terry Pratchett is the acclaimed creator of the global
bestselling Discworld series, the first of which, The Colour of
Magic, was published in 1983. Raising Steam is his fortieth
Discworld novel. His books have been widely adapted for stage and
screen, and he is the winner of multiple prizes, including the
Carnegie Medal, as well as being awarded a knighthood for services
to literature. After falling out with his keyboard he now talks to
his computer. Occasionally, these days, it answers back.
"One of the best and funniest English authors alive" * Independent
"Like Jonathan Swift, Pratchett uses his other world to hold up a distorting mirror to our own, and like Swift he is a satirist of enormous talent... incredibly funny... compulsively readable" * The Times *
"He would be amusing in any form and his spectacular inventiveness makes the Discworld series one of the perennial joys of modern fiction" * Mail on Sunday *
