Terry Pratchett puts his stamp on the thirty-third Discworld novel.
Terry Pratchett was the acclaimed creator of the global bestselling Discworld series, the first of which, The Colour of Magic, was published in 1983. In all, he was the author of over fifty bestselling books. His novels have been widely adapted for stage and screen, and he was the winner of multiple prizes, including the Carnegie Medal, as well as being awarded a knighthood for services to literature. He died in March 2015.
"'Like many of Pratchett's best comic novels, it is a book about
redemption ... There's a moral toughness here, which is one of the
reasons why Pratchett is never merely frivolous.'" * Time Out *
"With all the puns, strange names and quick-fire jokes about captive letters demanding to be delivered, it's easy to miss how cross about injustice Terry Pratchett can be. This darkness and concrete morality sets his work apart from imitators of his English Absurd school of comic fantasy." * Guardian *
