Witch's Vacuum Cleaner, Paperback (June 2017)
Poor Mr Swimble is having a bad day. Rabbits are bouncing out of his hat, pigeons are flying out of his jacket and every time he points his finger, something magically appears - cheese sandwiches, socks ...even a small yellow elephant on wheels! It's becoming a real nuisance - and he's allergic to rabbits.
Raising Steam, Paperback (May 2017)
People love to hate the trains. They're essential - but everyone wishes there were more of them, and that they were faster, and most of all, that they would just run on time. But whenever something new is planned for the railway, there will always be someone with objections..
Long Cosmos, Paperback (May 2017)
2070-71. Nearly six decades after Step Day and in the Long Earth, the new Next post-human society continues to evolve. For Joshua Valiente, now in his late sixties, it is time to take one last solo journey into the High Meggers: an adventure that turns into a disaster. Alone and facing death, his only hope of salvation lies with a group of trolls.
Carpet People, Paperback (January 2017)» View all books by Terry Pratchett

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.
US Kirkus Review » That rare event, a comedy sequel (to The Colour of Magic, 1983) that is twistier, plottier, and funnier than its predecessor. "The sun rose slowly, as if it wasn't sure it was worth all the effort." Sobegins Pratchett's latest yarn about Disc Earth, which rests on the backs of four huge elephants, who stand upon the shell of A'Tuin the Great Turtle; the latter is heading through space towards a huge, malevolent red star, but nobody knows why. Rincewind the failed wizard, his companion Twoflower the naive tourist, and Twoflower's aggressive luggage (a sapient pearwood box that trots around on hundreds of tiny legs), having fallen off the Disc at the end of Magic, now find themselves safe back on the Disc - thanks to the Octavo, the highly magical repository of the Eight Great Spells. One of the spells has taken up residence in Rincewind's head ("The spell wasn't a demanding lodger. It just sat there like an old toad at the bottom of a pond"), and so most of the Disc's wizards are chasing after Rincewind to try and get the spell back. The rest is riotously impossible to summarize but includes warrior princesses, Cohen the Barbarian, trolls, demons, Death, Druids, false teeth, argumentative spells, flying rocks, and talking trees. You won't stop grinning except to chuckle or sometimes roar with laughter. The most hilarious fantasy since - come to think of it, since Pratchett's previous outing. (Kirkus Reviews)
