After all, how difficult could it be to make sure that a servant girl doesn't marry a prince? Quite hard, actually, even for the witches Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick.

"'A true orginal among contemporary writers'" * The Times * "'His jokes are the best thing since Wodehouse. His comic footnotes are still glorious'" * The Times * "'Pratchett's writing is a constant delight. No-one mixes the fantastical and mundane to better comic effect or offers sharper insights into the absurdities of modern endeavour'" * Daily Mail *show more
