9780060855888: The Light Fantastic (Discworld Novels)

'What shall we do?' said Twoflower.

'Panic?' said Rincewind hopefully. He always held that panic was the best means of survival.

When the very fabric of time and space are about to be put through the wringer - in this instance by the imminent arrival of a very large and determinedly oncoming meteorite - circumstances require a very particular type of hero. Sadly what the situation does not need is a singularly inept wizard, still recovering from the trauma of falling off the edge of the world. Equally it does not need one well-meaning tourist and his luggage which has a mind of its own. Which is a shame because that's all there is...

Product Description:

'What shall we do?' said Twoflower.

'Panic?' said Rincewind hopefully. He always held that panic was the best means of survival.

As it moves towards a seemingly inevitable collision with a malevolent red star, the Discworld could do with a hero. What it doesn’t need is a singularly inept and cowardly wizard, still recovering from the trauma of falling off the edge of the world, or a well-meaning tourist and his luggage which has a mind (and legs) of its own. Which is a shame because that's all there is...

Review:

"'He is a satirist of enormous talent..Incredibly funny, compulsively readable'" ( The Times)

"'He would be amusing in any form and his spectacular inventiveness makes the Discworld series one of the perennial joys of modern fiction'" ( Daily Mail)

"'Pure fantastic delight'" ( Time Out)

"'A true original among contemporary writers'" ( The Times)
