Book Description

Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch had it all. But now he's back in his own rough, tough past without even the clothes he was standing up in when the lightning struck...Living in the past is hard. Dying in the past is incredibly easy. But he must survive, because he has a job to do. He must track down a murderer, teach his younger self how to be a good copper and change the outcome of a bloody rebellion. There's a problem: if he wins, he's got no wife, no child, no future...A Discworld Tale of One City, with a full chorus of street urchins, ladies of negotiable affection, rebels, secret policemen and other children of the revolution. Truth! Justice! Freedom! And a Hard-boiled Egg!

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.

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...

Carpe Jugulum by Terry Pratchett 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 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.

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)
