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

This is the Discworld's last continent, a completely separate creation. It's hot. It's dry...very dry. There was this thing once called The Wet, which no one now believes in. Practically everything that's not poisonous is venomous. But it's the best bloody place in the world, all right? And it'll die in a few days, except...Who is this hero striding across the red desert? Champion sheep shearer, horse rider, road warrior, beer drinker, bush ranger and someone who'll even eat a Meat Pie Floater when he's sober? A man in a hat, whose Luggage follows him on little legs, who's about to change history by preventing a swagman stealing a jumbuck by a billabong? Still...no worries, eh? THE LAST CONTINENT IS THE TWENTY-SECOND IN TERRY PRATCHETT'S PHENOMENALLY SUCCESSFUL DISCWORLD SERIES, IT'S AUSTRALIAN, BUT ONLY VAGUELY 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
