About Terry Pratchett

Terry Pratchett is one of the most popular authors writing today. He lives behind a keyboard in Wiltshire and says he 'doesn't want to get a life, because it feels as though he's trying to lead three already'. He was appointed OBE in 1998. He is the author of the phenomenally successful Discworld series and his trilogy for young readers, The Bromeliad, is scheduled to be adapted into a spectacular animated movie. His first Discworld novel for children, THE AMAZING MAURICE AND HIS EDUCATED RODENTS, was awarded the 2001 Carnegie Medal.show more

Back cover copy

SAM VIMES IS A MAN ON THE RUN. Yesterday he was a duke, a chief of police and the ambassador to the mysterious, fat-rich country of Uberwald. Now he has nothing but his native wit and the gloomy trousers of Uncle Vanya (don't ask). It's snowing. It's freezing. And if he can't make it through the forest to civilization there's going to be a terrible war. But there are monsters on his trail. They're bright. They're fast. They're werewolves - and they're catching up. Sam Vimes is out of time, out of luck and already out of breath. A HILARIOUS BESTSELLER IN THE DISCWORLD SERIES Tony Robinson, successful writer, actor and documentary-maker. Star of radio, TV and theatre. Well-known for the popular TV series Time Team and his roles as the Sheriff of Nottingham in Maid Marion and Her Merry Men and Baldrick in Blackadder. Abridged, running time approximately 3 hoursshow more
