About Terry Pratchett

Terry Pratchett is the acclaimed creator of the global bestselling Discworld series, the first of which, The Colour of Magic, was published in 1983. Raising Steam is his fortieth Discworld novel. His books have been widely adapted for stage and screen, and he is the winner of multiple prizes, including the Carnegie Medal, as well as being awarded a knighthood for services to literature. After falling out with his keyboard he now talks to his computer. Occasionally, these days, it answers back. www.terrypratchett.co.uk @terryandrobshow more

Review quote

"Wraith-like jokes pushing at the margins of taste... inspired imagination" The Independent "A hilarious and subtly thought-provoking story" The 100 Best Books "A marvellous story... You think this is a good book? Right. It is funny, poignant, angry, outrageous and moving. Were it a movie, you'd leave the cinema wondering whether you were crying with laughter or because of the passion and compassion of the story. ... [this book is] the best he has ever written, one that would shift him - were there any justice - from the ranks of "mere" bestsellerdom into the realm of "literature"... it also makes you look again at the way we live" Vector Magazine "Terry Pratchett uses his wicked sense of humour to hilarious effect in his new fantasy story...anyone over ten can find something to smile about here" Daily Mailshow more
