Terry Pratchett

MIGHTY BATTLES! REVOLUTION! DEATH! WAR! (AND HIS SONS TERROR AND PANIC, AND DAUGHTER CLANCY)

The oldest and most inscrutable empire on the Discworld is in turmoil, brought about by the revolutionary treatise WHAT I DID ON MY HOLIDAYS. Workers are uniting, with nothing to lose but their water buffaloes. War (and Clancy) are spreading throughout the ancienct cities.

And all that stands in the way of terrible doom for everyone is:

Rincewind the Wizard, who can't even spell the word 'wizard'...

Cohen the barbarian hero, five foot tall in his surgical sandals, who has had a lifetime's experience of not dying...

...and a very SPECIAL butterfly.

The clown prince of fantasy fiction.
~ Daily Mail

`May you live in interesting times.`
~ Ancient Curse

`Terry Pratchett does for fantasy what Douglas Adams did for science fiction.`
~ Today

`Terry Pratchett is more than a magician. He is the kindest, most fascinating teacher you ever had.`
~ Harlan Ellison

A fable? Perhaps. Fabulous. Certainly.
~ The Times (London)

Praise for THIEF OF TIME: Philosophical humor of the highest order.
~ Kirkus Reviews

The funniest parodist working in the field today, period.
~ New York Review of Science Fiction

Unadulterated fun ... Witty, frequently hilarious ... Pratchett parodies everythng in sight.
~ San Francisco Chronicle

Amazon Product Description:
`May you live in interesting times` is the worst thing one can wish on a citizen of Discworld - especially on the distinctly unmagical sorcerer Rincewind, who has had far too much perilous excitement in his life. But when a request for a `Great Wizzard` arrives in Ankh-Morpork via carrier albatross from the faraway Counterweight Continent, it's he who's sent as emissary. Chaos threatens to follow the impending demise of the Agatean Empire's current ruler. And, for some incomprehensible reason, someone believes Rincewind will have a mythic role in the war and wholesale bloodletting that will surely ensue. (Carnage is pretty much a given, since Cohen the Barbarian and his extremely elderly Silver Horde are busily formulating their own plan for looting, pillaging, and, er, looking wistfully at girls.) However, Rincewind firmly believes there are too many heroes already in the world, yet only one Rincewind. And he owes it to the world to keep that one alive for as long as possible.

About the Author:
Terry Pratchett is one of the most popular living authors in the world. His first story was published when he was thirteen, and his first full-length book when he was twenty. He worked as a journalist to support the writing habit, but gave up the day job when the success of his books meant that it was costing him money to go to work.
Prachett's acclaimed novels are bestsellers in the U.S. and the United Kingdom and have sold more than twenty-one million copies worldwide. He lives in England, where he writes all the time. (It's his hobby as well.)
