Carpe Jugulum by Terry Pratchett
Book DescriptionMightily Oats has not picked a good time to be priest. He thought he'd come to Lancre for a simple ceremony. Now he's caught up in a war between vampires and witches. There's Young Agnes, who is really in two minds about everything - Magrat, who is trying to combine witchcraft and nappies, Nanny Ogg...and Granny Weatherwax, who is big trouble. And the vampires are intelligent. They've got style and fancy waistcoats. They're out of the casket and want a bite of the future. Mightily Oats knows he has a prayer, but he wishes he had an axe. "Carpe Jugulum" is Terry Pratchett's twenty-third "Discworld" novel - but the first to star vampires.

Last Continent, Hardback (October 2016)
There's nothing like the issue of evolution to get under the skin of academics. Even if their field of expertise is magic rather than biology. With the best and most interfering minds of Unseen University somehow left in charge at a critical evolutionary turning point, the Discworld's last continent needs a saviour...
Carpe Jugulum, Hardback (October 2016)
Mightily Oats has not picked a good time to be a priest. Lancre's newest residents are a thoroughly modern, sophisticated vampire family. They've got style and fancy waistcoats. They're out of the casket and want a bite of the future. But they haven't met the neighbours yet: between them and Lancre stand Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg.
Truth, Hardback (October 2016)
William must cope with the traditional perils of a journalist's life - people who want him dead, a recovering vampire with a suicidal fascination for flash photography, and, the man who keeps begging him to publish pictures of his humorously shaped potatoes. William just wants to get at THE TRUTH. Unfortunately, everyone else wants to get him.
Fifth Elephant, Hardback (October 2016)» View all books by Terry Pratchett
A few days ago Sam Vimes was a copper - an important copper, true - chief of police - but still, at his core, a policeman. But today he is an ambassador - to the mysterious, fat-rich country of Uberwald. Today, Sam Vimes is also a man on the run. There are monsters on his trail. They're fast. They're werewolves - and they're catching up.
UK Kirkus Review » Pratchett's second Discworld book in a year; the witches of Lancre come up against a family who dress in black and have the power to cloud minds. These vampires have moved with the times, though, and lack most of the standard vulnerabilities; you might call it cheating. (Kirkus UK)
US Kirkus Review » Another sidesplitting Discworld adventure (Interesting Times, 1997, etc.) from the undisputed emperor of philosophical slapstick. Carpe Jugulum appeared last year in England, where Pratchett outsells entire genres all by himself, and of course it was another runaway bestseller. Nevertheless, such is the nature of the business, the publishers were unable to rush a copy to Kirkus in time for a full and early review. Known affectionately in the UK as "the Australian one," this outing features a battle between Discworld's witches - old favorites Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg, etc. - and the Magpyrs, or vampires ("why are vampires always so stupid? As if wearing evening dress all day wasn't an undead giveaway . . . ") incautiously invited to dinner by the kindhearted King of Lancre. Quite how Australia, Death's dog, tiny blue pixie invaders, a fat witch with (literally) a thin witch insider her trying to get out, and a buzzard that thinks it's a chicken, all figure in the proceedings, readers are cordially invited to discover for themselves. Pratchett knows what makes people tick and how to make them laugh. And how. (Kirkus Reviews)
