Imagine a flat world, sitting on the backs of four elephants, who hurtle through space balanced on a giant turtle. The Discworld is a place (and a time) parallel to our own - but also very different. That is the setting for Terry Pratchett's phenomenally successful Discworld series, which now celebrates its 25th anniversary.
The Discworld Graphic Novels presents the very first two volumes of this much-loved series in graphic novel form. First published fifteen years ago, these fully illustrated versions are now issued for the first time in hardback. Introduced here are the bizarre misadventures of Twoflower, the Discworld's first ever tourist, and possibly - portentously - its last, and his guide Rincewind, the spectacularly inept wizard.Not to mention the Luggage, which has a mind of its own.

Summary: "Discworld is more complicated and satisfactory than Oz." A.S. Byatt The Color of Magic and The Light Fantasticthe first two volumes of Terry Pratchett's phenomenally successful, New York Times bestselling Discworld seriesare now available in this special anniversary graphic novel edition. Strikingly illustrated and painstakingly adapted, The Discworld Graphic Novels brings Prachett's bizarre, outrageousyet strangely familiaruniverse of wizards, witches, vampires, bureaucrats, policemen, golems, dwarves, and living luggage to bold, visual life. The Houston Chronicle calls Terry Pratchett, "J.R.R. Tolkien with a sharper, more satiric edge." The Washington Post compares him to Geoffrey Chaucer, while the Chicago Tribune admires his "Monty Python-like plots." But in truth there's no one quite like the incomparable Pratchetton this world or any other. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_006183310X
