After twenty-one decades of living, and with the help of memory surgery, she is at the top of her profession. Discovering two of her employees have placed a fossilized plesiosaur in the wrong stratum, not to mention the fact it is holding a placard which reads, 'End Nuclear Testing Now', doesn't dismay the woman who built a mountain range in the shape of her initials during her own high-spirited youth.

Carpet People, Paperback (January 2017)

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)
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, Hardback (October 2016)» View all books by Terry Pratchett
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...
US Kirkus Review » A well-handled, inventive, gleefully madcap flat-Earth jaunt where things are never quite what they seem. Two-centuries-old Kin Arad, planet-builder from the real Earth (where Remus founded "Reme" and Europe was defeated by a Norse-American Indian coalition) is contacted by mad starship pilot Jago Jalo, who has discovered an astonishing object: a disk-shaped Earth replete with valuable artifacts of the Great Spindle Kings (a vanished alien race of superior accomplishments who, among other things, built the Earth). With alien companions Marco (a paranoid, four-armed warrior Kung), Silver (a cannibalistic Shand), and a stowaway raven who turns out to be a spy (Jalo himself soon succumbs to a heart attack), Kin travels to the disk Earth, which features a protective barrier, recycling oceans, and artificial planets describing epicycles in the sky. On arrival, their ship accidentally rams a "planet" and they crashland on the disk - just in time to save Leif Eriksson's longship, vainly searching for Vinland, from falling off the edge. And a wacky journey ensues, deftly parodying Ringworld. With everything from dragons to robots: bright, bubbly fun. (Kirkus Reviews)
