Terry Pratchett

Everyone knows that the world is flat, and supported on the backs of four elephants. But weren't there supposed to be five? Indeed there were. So where is it?...

When duty calls. Commander Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork constabulary answers. Even when he doesn't want to. He's been `invited` to attend a royal function as both detective and diplomat. The one role he relishes; the other requires, well, ruby tights. Of course where cops (even those clad in tights) go, alas, crime follows. An attempted assassination and a theft soon lead to a desperate chase from the low halls of Discworld royalty to the legendary fat mines of Uberwald, where lard is found in underground seams along with tusks and teeth and other precious ivory artifacts. It's up to the dauntless Vimes - bothered as usual by a familiar cast of Discworld inhabitants (you know, trolls, dwarfs, werewolves, vampires and such) - to solve the puzzle of the missing pachyderm. Which of course he does. After all, solving mysteries is his job.

`Think J.R.R. Tolkien with a sharper, more satiric edge.`
~ Houston Chronicle

`Consider yourself grabbed by the collar, with me shouting, 'You've got to read this book!'`
~ Barbara Mertz

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

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

`Discworld is more complicated and satisfactory than Oz. Truly original. Pratchett creates a brilliant excess of delectable detail!`
~ A. S. Byatt

`Unadulterated fun. Pratchett parodies everything in sight.`
~ San Francisco Chronicle

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.)
