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...

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.

UK Kirkus Review » And still they come - Terry Pratchett's prodigal invention shows not the slightest sign of flagging, and his wonderfully witty Discworld books make up for the occasional thin patch by a colourfully orchestrated succession of brilliant gags and sardonically bizarre plotting. Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch had finally achieved all that he has aimed for in life. But at a stroke he finds himself back in the past, courtesy of an unfortunate flash of lightning. He finds living in the past hard, but as always he has a job to do: tracking down a murderer, teaching his younger self out to be a good policeman and incidentally altering the course of history. This 27th Discworld novel has much of the energy and panache that been missing from some of the books of late. The comic possibilities of the time travel paradox have brought out Pratchett's winning skills in full force once again, and Sam Vimes is, of course a much-loved character. Pratchett is one of the few authors who is a real celebrity - and Night Watch reminds us that such celebrity is justified. (Kirkus UK)
