'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.

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)

Book Description HarperTorch, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 185 x 104 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. It s just one of those days when nothing seemsto go right a most inopportune time for thefirst tourist ever to set foot (and carnivorous Luggage) on the Discworld to be extending his already eventful vacation. (Not that he currently has much choice in the matter.) But with a monstrous red star on a direct collision course, the future for the residents of this flat planet carried by four elephants riding on the shell of a giant turtle swimming through space appears uncertain at best. Fortunately, there is one individual who can save Discworld from total destruction.

Book Description Harper, 2013. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The side-splitting sequel to The Color of Magic, The Light Fantastic by New York Times bestselling author Sir Terry Pratchett takes readers on another offbeat journey with bumbling wizard Rincewind and hapless tourist Twoflowerboth last seen falling off the edge of Discworld. The fate of Pratchett's alternative fantasy macrocosm are in the bumbling duo's hands as it hurtles its way toward a foreboding red star, threatening the fate of the entire universe. Sharp, sardonic, and brilliantly funny, in this third installment in the bestselling Discworld series, Pratchett once again earns his master satirist reputation, with witty wordplay and irreverent storytelling that fans are sure to love.
