Books By Author Terry Pratchett

Carpet People by Terry Pratchett Carpet People, Paperback (January 2017)

In the beginning, there was nothing but endless flatness. Then came the Carpet... That's the old story everyone knows and loves. But now the Carpet is home to many different tribes and peoples and there's a new story in the making. The story of Fray, sweeping a trail of destruction across the Carpet.

Truth by Terry Pratchett 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 by Terry Pratchett Fifth Elephant, Hardback (October 2016)

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.

Last Continent by Terry Pratchett 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...

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » Pratchett borrows from Babylonian cosmology for his second, wacky flat-Earth yarn - set on an Earth.disk that rests on the backs of four elephants, who themselves stand on the shell of an enormous turtle. (And only Pratchett's characters would think of lowering themselves over the edge of the disk-in order to determine the sex of the turtle!) This time failed wizard Rincewind runs into problems when he encounters rich, bumbling circum - disk tourist Twoflower - whose luggage consists of a sapient pearwood box that trots around after him on hundreds of tiny legs. . . and snaps its lid at anyone it doesn't like. The innocent Twoflower sells some fire insurance to a shifty innkeeper, who proceeds to burn down his inn and the entire city of Ankh-Morpork. And what follows is madcap travelogue, involving: the disk's zany, often magical inhabitants; the Gods (atheists are liable to get their windows broken); a watery being who splashed down in the ocean, having fallen off a different Earth-disk; and Death with his scythe (whose timing is so poor that Rincewind keeps evading him). Not quite the gleefully insane parody Strata (1981) was, but frothy, inventive, and fun. (Kirkus Reviews)

Book Review: Colour of Magic by Terry Pratchett - Reviewed by (12 Jul 2011)

This book is for anyone that wants to be transported into a fantastic magical world of warriors and warlocks... and chests that run around on lots of little feet?! Quirky, Cheeky, but most of all lovely and warm as the characters are developed with so much love by the writer that they draw you into the book and compel you to turn the next page to find out what will happen next. You will finish the book feeling as if the characters are your friends and you won't want to leave them, but don't worry you don't have to as this is only the first in a series of unforgettable books by a truly gifted author.
