Terry Pratchett

It is rare and splendid event when an author is elevated from the underground into the international literary establishment. In the case of England's best-known and best-loved modern satirist, that event has been long overdue.

Terry Pratchett's profoundly irreverent Discworld novels satirize and celebrate every aspect of life, modern and ancient, sacred and profane. Consistent number-one bestsellers in England, they have garnered him a secure position in the pantheon of humor along with Mark Twain, Douglas Adams, Matt Groening, and Jonathan Swift.

Even so distinguished an author as A. S. Byatt has sung his praises, calling Pratchett's intricate and delightful fictional Discworld `more complicated and satisfying than Oz.`

His latest satiric triumph, Carpe Jugulum, involves an exclusive royal snafu that leads to comic mayhem. In a fit of enlightenment democracy and ebullient goodwill, King Verence invites Uberwald's undead, the Magpyrs, into Lancre to celebrate the birth of his daughter. But once ensconced within the castle, these wine-drinking, garlic-eating, sun-loving modern vampires have no intention of leaving. Ever.

Only an uneasy alliance between a nervous young priest and the argumentative local witches can save the country from being taken over by people with a cultivated bloodlust and bad taste in silk waistcoats. For them, there's only one way to fight.

Go for the throat, or as the vampyres themselves say...
Carpe Jugulum

A brilliant story-teller with a sense of humour... whose infectious fun completely engulfs you...
~ Mail on Sunday

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

Consistently, inventively mad... wild and wonderful!
~ Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine

If I were making my list of Best Books of the Twentieth Century, Terry Pratchett's would be most of them.
~ Elizabeth Peters

There are few authors who can mke me laugh out loud quite so much as Terry Pratchett... For me, his novels come in two varieties, the amusing and the hilarious. This novel falls into the hilarious category.
~ Newbury Weekly News (UK)

Carpe Jugulum is a worthy addition to the ever-growing number of Discworld books.
~ Doncaster Free Press (UK)

[Pratchett is] still head and shoulders above almost anyone working in a similar vein.
~ SFX (UK)

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.)
