Marvellous Discworld, which revolves on the backs of four great elephants and a big turtle, spins into Interesting Times, the 17th outing in Terry Pratchett's rollicking fantasy series. The gods are playing games again, and this time the mysterious Lady opposes Fate in a match of "Destinies of Nations Hanging by a Thread". -- Blaise SelbyReview:
"'Funny, delightfully inventive, and refuses to lie down in its genre'" ( Observer)
"'Imagine a collision between Jonathan Swift at his most scatalogically-minded and J.R.R Tolkein on speed... This total mess of- I suppose- a novel, is the joyous outcome'" ( Daily Telegraph)
"'Cracking dialogue, compelling illogic and unchained whimsy... Pratchett has a subject and a style that is very much his own'" ( The Sunday Times)
"'Pratchett is as funny as Wodehouse and as witty as Waugh'" ( Independent)
"'Like Dickens, much of Pratchett's appeal lies in his humanism, both in a sentimental regard for his characters' good fortune, and in that his writing is generous-spirited and inclusive'" ( Guardian)

Summary: On Discworld, a bizarre planet carried through space on the backs of four elephants perched on a gigantic turtle, retirement is looking good to Wizard Rincewind. But when a nearly illegible and equally incomprehensible message from a lost (until now) continent arrives, his glorious leaders pack him off on an ill-considered diplomatic mission. Just what he is supposed to accomplish, no one can say. As the mystery grows ever more unfathomable, Rincewind is faced with yet another pressing question: What is that magical butterfly doing here, anyway?. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0061056901
