Product description

It is known as the Discworld. It is a flat planet, supported on the backs of four elephants, who in turn stand on the back of the great turtle A'Tuin as it swims majestically through space. And it is quite possibly the funniest place in all of creation. The last thing the wizard Drum Billet did, before Death laid a bony hand on his shoulder, was to pass on his staff of power to the eighth son of an eighth son. Unfortunately for his colleagues in the chauvinistic (not to say misogynistic) world of magic, he failed to check on the new-born baby's sex...Terry Pratchett turns his acute satirical eye on sexual equality and chauvanism in his hilarious third Discworld novel.

Author information

Sir Terry Pratchett is a publishing phenomenon. Among his many prizes and citations are the WORLD FANTASY LIFE ACHIEVEMENT AWARD, the CARNEGIE MEDAL, the BSFA AWARD, eight honorary doctorates and, of course, a knighthood. In 2012, he won a BAFTA for his documentary on the subject of assisted suicide, 'Terry Pratchett: Choosing to Die'. He is the author of 50 bestselling books but is best known for the globally renowned Discworld series. The first Discworld novel, THE COLOUR OF MAGIC, was published in 1983, and the series is still going strong almost three decades later. Four Discworld novels -HOGFATHER, GOING POSTAL, THE COLOUR OF MAGIC and THE LIGHT FANTASTIC - have been adapted for television, with more to follow. His books have sold approximately 75 million copies worldwide (but who's counting?), and been translated into 37 languages. Terry Pratchett lives near Salisbury in Wiltshire.
