The sixth 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.
'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' * The Times *
'One of the perennial joys of modern fiction' * Mail on Sunday *
'One of the pleasures of the book is the way in which literary classics float effortlessly through them in a way that would be pounced on as inter-textual in another author but is never allowed to become strident or alienating in Pratchett's work' * Guardian *
