The eighth Discworld novel.
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.
"'This is one of Pratchett's best books. Hilarious and highly
recommended'" * The Times *
"'Pratchett is at the peak of his powers; it's hard to think of any humorist writing in Britain today who can match him...A masterful ear for dialogue, a keen eye for the ridiculous and a real feel for language'" * Time Out *
"'The best humorous English author since P.G. Wodehouse'" * Sunday Telegraph *
