‘That’s the trouble about the good guys and the bad guys! They’re all guys!’

In the small yet aggressive country of Borogravia, there are strict rules citizens must follow. For a start, women belong in the kitchen – not in jobs, pubs, or indeed trousers. And certainly not on the front line.

Polly Perks has to become a boy in a hurry if she wants to find her missing brother in the army. Cutting off her hair and wearing the trousers is easy. Going to war however, is not.

Polly and her fellow raw recruits are suddenly in the thick of a losing battle. All they have on their side is the most artful sergeant in the army and a vampire with a lust for coffee.

It’s time to make a stand.

‘Always push your luck because no one else would push it for you.’

Imprisoned in Ankh-Morpork, con artist Moist von Lipwig is offered a choice: to be executed or to accept a job as the city’s Postmaster General.

It’s a tough decision, but he’s already survived one hanging and isn’t in the mood to try it again.

The Post Office is down on its luck: beset by mountains of undelivered mail, eccentric employees, and a dangerous secret order. To save his skin, Moist will need to restore the postal service to its former glory, with the help of tough talking activist Adora Belle Dearheart. Who happens to be very attractive, in an ‘entire womanful of anger’ kind of way.

But there’s new technology to compete against and an evil chairman who will stop at nothing to delay Ankh-Morpork’s post for good . . .

‘Whoever said you can’t fool an honest man wasn’t one.’

The Royal Bank of Ankh-Morpork is facing a crisis and needs a shake-up in management. Cue Moist von Lipwig, Postmaster General and former con artist. If anyone can rescue the city’s ailing financial institution, it’s him. He doesn’t really want the job, but the thing is, he doesn’t have a choice.

Moist has many problems to solve as part of his new role: the chief cashier is almost certainly a vampire, the chairman needs his daily walkies, there’s something strange happening in the cellar, and the Royal Mint is running at a loss.

Moist begins making some ambitious changes . . . and some dangerous enemies. Because money is power and certain stakeholders will do anything to keep a firm grip on both . . .

‘The world lives between those who say it cannot be done and those who say that it can . . . it’s just a matter of thinking creatively.’

Moist von Lipwig is a con man turned civil servant. As head of the Royal Bank and Post Office of Ankh-Morpork, he doesn’t really want or need another job. But when the Patrician Lord Vetinari gives you a task, you do it or suffer the consequences. In Moist’s case, death.

A brand-new invention has come to the city: a steam locomotive named Iron Girder, to be precise. With the railway’s introduction and rapid expansion, Vetinari enlists Moist to represent the government and keep things on track.

But as with all new technology, some people have objections, and Moist will have to use every trick in his arsenal to keep the trains running . . .

This classic Discworld novel now has a brand-new cover look to celebrate 50 years of Terry Pratchett! Eric is part of The Unseen University Collection.

Eric is the Discworld’s only demonology hacker. The trouble is, he’s not very good at it. All he wants is the usual three wishes: to be immortal, rule the world and have the most beautiful woman fall madly in love with him. The usual stuff.

But what he gets is Rincewind, the Disc’s most incompetent wizard, and Rincewind’s Luggage (the world’s most dangerous travel accessory) into the bargain.

Terry Pratchett’s hilarious take on the Faust legend stars many of the Discworld’s most popular characters in an outrageous adventure that will leave Eric wishing once more – this time, quite fervently, that he’d never been born.

Readers adore Eric:

New editions of Terry Pratchett’s bestselling Discworld novels from From Transworld. The Witches series were the first to get the treatment, now it’s the turn of the Wizards.

Introducing the new look for The Colour of Magic, the first book in the series. Interestingly names as one of the BBC’s 100 most inspiring novels.

‘It was octarine, the colour of magic. It was alive and glowing and vibrant and it was the undisputed pigment of the imagination…’

Somewhere between thought and reality exists the Discworld, a magical world not totally unlike our own. Except for the fact that it travels through space on the shoulders of four giant elephants who in turn stand on the shell of an astronomically huge star turtle, of course.

Rincewind is the world’s worst wizard who has just been handed a very important job: to look after the world’s first tourist, upon whose survival rests the peace and prosperity of the land. Unfortunately, their journey across the Disc includes facing robbers, monsters, mercenaries, and Death himself.

And the whole thing’s just a game of the gods that might send them over the edge . . .

Transworld is releasing new editions of Terry Pratchett’s bestselling Discworld novels. The Witches series were the first to get the treatment, now it’s the turn of the Wizards.

Introducing the new look for The Light Fantastic, the second book in the series.

‘Darkness isn’t the opposite of light, it is simply its absence . . . what was radiating from the book was the light that lies on the far side of darkness, the light fantastic.’

The Discworld is in danger, heading towards a seemingly inevitable collision with a malevolent red star, its magic fading. It needs a hero, and fast.

What it doesn’t need is Rincewind, an inept and cowardly wizard who is still recovering from the trauma of falling off the edge of the world. Or Twoflower, the well-meaning tourist whose luggage has a mind (and legs) of its own.

Which is a shame, because that’s all there is . . .

Introducing the new look for Sourcery, the third book in the series.

‘It’s vital to remember who you really are . . . it isn’t a good idea to rely on other people or things to do it for you, you see. They always get it wrong.’

An eighth son of an eighth son is born, a wizard squared, a source of magic. A sourcerer.

Unseen University, the Discworld’s most magical establishment, has finally got its wish: the emergence of a wizard more powerful than ever before. You’d think they would have been a little more careful what they wished for . . .

As the sourcerer takes over the University and sets his sights on the rest of the world, only one wizard manages to escape his influence. Unfortunately for everyone, it’s Rincewind.

Once again the cowardly wizard must embark on a quest: to deliver a precious artefact – the very embodiment of magic itself – halfway across the Disc to safety. If he doesn’t make it, the death of all wizardry is at hand.

And the end of the world, depending on who you listen to.

‘There is a curse. They say: may you live in interesting times . . .’

This is the worst thing you can wish on a citizen of Discworld. Especially for the magically challenged Rincewind, who has already had far too much excitement in his life.

Unfortunately, the unlucky wizard always seems to end up in the middle of, well, absolutely everything. So when a request for a ‘Great Wizzard’ arrives from the faraway Counterweight Continent, it’s obviously Rincewind who’s sent. For one thing, he’s the only one who spells wizard that way.

Once again Rincewind is thrown headfirst into a dangerous adventure. For the oldest empire on the Disc is in turmoil and Chaos is building. And, for some reason, someone believes Rincewind will have a vital role in the coming war . . .

Rincewind, inept wizard and reluctant hero, has found himself magically stranded on the Discworld’s last continent.

Somewhere on the frontier between thought and reality exists the Discworld, a parallel time and place which might sound and smell very much like our own, but which looks completely different. Particularly as it’s carried though space on the back of a giant turtle (sex unknown). It plays by different rules. But then, some things are the same everywhere. The Disc’s very existence is about to be threatened by a strange new blight: the world’s first tourist, upon whose survival rests the peace and prosperity of the land. Unfortunately, the person charged with maintaining that survival in the face of robbers, mercenaries and, well, Death, is a spectacularly inept wizard…

In the four decades since his first book appeared in print, Terry Pratchett has become one of the world’s best-selling and best-loved authors. Here for the first time are his short stories and other short form fiction collected into one volume. A Blink of the Screen charts the course of Pratchett’s long writing career: from his schooldays through to his first writing job on the Bucks Free Press,; to the origins of his debut novel, The Carpet People; and on again to the dizzy mastery of the phenomenally successful Discworld series. Here are characters both familiar and yet to be discovered; abandoned worlds and others still expanding; adventure, chickens, death, disco and, actually, some quite disturbing ideas about Christmas,all of it shot through with his inimitable brand of humour. With an introduction by Booker Prize-winning author A.S. Byatt, illustrations by the late Josh Kirby and drawings by the author himself, this is a book to treasure.
