Terry Pratchett - Johnny and the Bomb
It's May 21, 1941, thought Johhny. It's war. Johnny Maxwell and his friends have to do something when they find Mrs Tachyon, the local bag lady, semi-conscious in an alley... as long as it's not the kiss of life. But there's more to Mrs Tachyon than a squeaky trolley and a bunch of dubious black bags. Somehow she holds the key to different times, different eras - including the Blackbury Blitz in 1941. Suddenly now isn't the safe place Johnny once thought it was as he finds himself caught up more and more with then...
Terry Pratchett - The Bromeliad
Truckers, Diggers, and Wings: To the thousands of tiny nomes living under the floorboards of a large department Store, there is no Outside. They have no day or night, no sun or rain. They're just daft old legends. Until they hear the devastating news that the Store is to be demolished... And so their journey begins. From the Store to an abandoned quarry - where they find the monster Jekub - and on to a place where they must steal one of those space shuttle things, all the nomes want is to get home again. They don't _mean_ to cause any trouble... A magnificent trilogy of tales about a race of little people struggling to survive in a world full of humans.
Terry Pratchett - Ruhig Blut!
König Verence ist der aufgeklärte Herrscher des kleinen Landes Lancre auf der Scheibenwelt. Als er mit alten Vorurteilen aufräumen will und hochgestellte Vampire aus Überwald zu einer Taufe einlädt, erweisen sich diese als ebenso modern: Durch alten Schnickschnack wie Knoblauch lassen sie sich nicht schrecken. So sind Nanny Ogg, Oma Wetterwachs und der junge Priester Hilbert Himmelwärts schon bald in den schönsten Krieg zwischen Hexen und Vampiren verwickelt.
Terry Pratchett - Stephen Briggs - Guards! Guards!
Adapted for the stage by Stephen Briggs, in this book the city of Ankh-Morpork is under threat from a 60 foot fire-breathing dragon, summoned by a secret society of malcontented tradesmen. Defending the city is the underpaid and undervalued City Night Watch.
Terry Pratchett - Die Farben der Magie / Das Licht der Phantasie
Mit "Die Farben der Magie" und "Das Licht der Phantasie" führte Terry Pratchett erstmals auf die flachste aller scheibenförmigen Welten - und erschuf nebenbei eine der erfolgreichsten Romanserien aller Zeiten: Millionenfach verkauft, begeistern die Abenteuer um den verrückten Zauberer Rincewind, Gevatter Tod, gefräßige Truhen und eine gigantische Schildkröte immer neue Leser.
Terry Pratchett - Stephen Briggs - A Tourist Guide to Lancre
Not only an artistic and breathtaking view of Lancre but also an interesting and informative guide to one of the Discworld's more, er, picturesque kingdoms. Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick live there. Lancre could hardly be somwhere ordinary, could it? Magic glues the Discworld together and a lot of it ends up in Lancre, principal Kingdom of the Ramtop Mountains. Between Uberwald and Whale Bay, the Octarine Grass Country and the Windersins Ocean lies the most exciting and dangerous terrain in all Discworld. The Ramtops supply Discworld with most of its witches and wizards. The leaves on the trees move even when there is no breeze. Rocks go for a stroll in the evening. Even the land, at times, seems alive. The mapp may be only two-dimensional, but watch it very carefully and you might just see it jostle about a bit.
Terry Pratchett - Steven Ross - The Discworld Graphic Novels
IN A DISTANT AND SECOND-HAND SET OF DIMENSIONS, IN AN ASTRAL PLANE THAT WAS NEVER MEANT TO FLY. . . 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 twenty-fifth 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.
Stephen Briggs - Terry Pratchett - The Streets of Ankh-Morpork
'THERE'S A SAYING THAT ALL ROADS LEAD TO ANKH-MORPORK. AND IT'S WRONG. ALL ROADS LEAD AWAY FROM ANKH-MORPORK, BUT SOMETIMES PEOPLE JUST WALK ALONG THE WRONG WAY' _from Moving Pictures_ Ankh-Morpork! City of One Thousand Surprises (according to the famous publication by the Guild of Merchants)! All human life is there! Although, if it walks down the wrong alley, often quite briefly! The city celebrated in the bestselling Discworld series by Terry Pratchett has been meticulously mapped for the first time. It's all here - from _Unseen University_ to the _Shades_, from major landmarks like the _Patrician's Palace_ to little-known, er, nooks like _Dwarf Bread Museum_ in _Whirligig Alley_. See the famous streets along which so many heroes have walked, in some cases quite hurriedly! As leading Ankh-Morpork entrepreneur C.M.O.T. Dibbler would say, A nip at any price - and that's cutting our own throat. Well, close.
Terry Pratchett - Thief of Time
Time is a resource. Everyone knows it has to be managed. And on Discworld that is the job of the Monks of History, who store it and pump it from the places where it's wasted (like underwater - how much time does a codfish need?) to places like cities where there's never enough time. But the construction of the world's first truly accurate clock starts a race against, well, time for Lu Tze and his apprentice Lobsang Ludd. Because it will stop time. And that will only be the start of everyone's problems. Thief of Time comes complete with a full supporting cast of heroes and villains, yetis, martial artists and Ronnie, the fifth Horseman of the Apocalypse (who left before they became famous).
Terry Pratchett - The Art of Discworld
In THE ART OF DISCWORLD, Terry Pratchett takes us on a guided tour of the Discworld, courtesy of his favourite Discworld artist, Paul Kidby. Following on from THE LAST HERO, THE ART OF DISCWORLD is a lavish 112-page large format, sumptuously illustrated look at all things Discworldian. Terry Pratchett provides the written descriptions while Paul Kidby illustrates the world that has made Pratchett one of the best-selling authors of all time. Here you will find favourites old and new: the City Watch, including Vimes, Carrot and Angua, the three witches - Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick - and the denizens of the Unseen University Library, not forgetting the Librarian, of course: they're all here in sumptuous colour, together with the places: Ankh-Morpork, Lancre, Uberwald and more ...No Discworld fan will want to be without this beautiful gift book.
Terry Pratchett - The Last Hero
He's been a legend in his own lifetime. He can remember the great days of high adventure. He can remember when a hero didn't have to worry about fences and lawyers and civilisation. He can remember when people didn't tell you off for killing dragons. But he can't always remember, these days, where he put his teeth... He's really not happy about that bit. So now, with his ancient sword and his new walking stick and his old friends - and they're very old friends - Cohen the Barbarian is going on one final quest. He's going to climb the highest mountain in the Discworld and meet his gods. He doesn't like the way they let men grow old and die. The last hero in the world is going to return what the first hero stole. With a vengeance. That'll mean the end of the world, if no one stops him in time...
Terry Pratchett - Az ötödik elefánt
VINKÓ SZILÁRD AZ ÉLETÉÉRT ROHAN. Ő, AKI TEGNAP MÉG HERCEG VOLT, A VÁROSŐRSÉG PARANCSNOKA ÉS A REJTÉLYES, HÁJBAN GAZDAG ÜBERWALDI BIRODALOMBA KINEVEZETT NAGYKÖVET. Ma azonban már nem támaszkodhat másra, csupán természetes józan eszére és Ványa bácsi nyomasztó nadrágjára (ne is kérdezzék…). Havazik. Dermesztő a hideg. És ha nem sikerül az erdőn átvergődve lakott területre jutnia, akkor kirobban egy rettenetes háború. Ráadásul szörnyek loholnak a nyomában. Okosak. Gyorsak. Mi több: vérfarkasok – és mind jobban beérik.
Terry Pratchett - A Slip of the Keyboard
Terry Pratchett has earned a place in the hearts of readers the world over with his bestselling Discworld series - but in recent years he has become equally well-known and respected as an outspoken campaigner for causes including Alzheimer's research and animal rights. A Slip of the Keyboard brings together for the first time the finest examples of Pratchett's non fiction writing, both serious and surreal: from musings on mushrooms to what it means to be a writer (and why banana daiquiris are so important); from memories of Granny Pratchett to speculation about Gandalf's love life, and passionate defences of the causes dear to him. With all the humour and humanity that have made his novels so enduringly popular, this collection brings Pratchett out from behind the scenes of the Discworld to speak for himself - man and boy, bibliophile and computer geek, champion of hats, orang-utans and Dignity in Dying.
Terry Pratchett - Dragons at Crumbling Castle
A beautifully illustrated collection of short stories by master storyteller Sir Terry Pratchett, featuring dragons, dinosaurs, cavemen and car races! Dragons have invaded Crumbling Castle, and all of King Arthur's knights are either on holiday or visiting their grannies. It's a disaster! Luckily, there's a spare suit of armour and a very small boy called Ralph who's willing to fill it. Together with Fortnight the Friday knight and Fossfiddle the wizard, Ralph sets out to defeat the fearsome fire-breathers. But there's a teeny weeny surprise in store... Fourteen fantastically funny stories from master storyteller Sir Terry Pratchett, full of time travel and tortoises, monsters and mayhem!
Terry Pratchett - Kallódó kontinens
A KORONGVILÁG KALLÓDÓ KONTINENSE PÁR NAPON BELÜL AZ ENYÉSZETÉ LESZ, HACSAK… Ki ez a hős, aki átszeli a vörös sivatagot? Birkák nyírója, sörök ivója, bozótbetyár – olyan valaki, aki még egy fasírtpufit is hajlandó megenni, méghozzá józan állapotban! Egy csúcsos kalapos férfi, akit a Poggyásza számtalan apró lábon követ. Igen, ő az, Széltoló, az alkalmatlan varázsló, aki még azt a szót sem képes helyesen leírni, hogy „varázsló”. Ő az egyetlen kéznél lévő hős. Szóval… gond egy szál se, eh?
Terry Pratchett - The Dark Side of the Sun
Dom Salabos had a lot of advantages. As heir to a huge fortune, he had an excellent robot servant (with Man-Friday subcircuitry), a planet (the First Syrian Bank) as godfather, a security chief who even ran checks on himself, and on Dom's home world even death was not always fatal. Why, then, in an age when prediction was a science, future in doubt?
Terry Pratchett - Making Money
It's an offer you can't refuse. Who would not wish to be the man in charge of Ankh-Morpork's Royal Mint and the bank next door? It's a job for life. But, as former conman Moist von Lipwig is learning, life is not necessarily for long. The Chief Cashier is almost certainly a vampire. There's something nameless in the cellar (and the cellar itself is pretty nameless), and it turns out that the Royal Mint runs at a loss. A three-hundred-year-old wizard is after his girlfriend, he's about to be exposed as a fraud, but the Assassins' Guild might get to him first.. In fact, a lot of people want him dead. Oh. And every day he has to take the Chairman for walkies. Everywhere he looks he's making enemies. What he should be doing is... Making Money!
Terry Pratchett - Ian Stewart - Jack Cohen - The Science of Discworld III - Darwin's Watch
Roundworld is in trouble again, and this time it looks fatal. Having created it in the first place, the wizards of Unseen University feel vaguely responsible for its safety. They know the creatures who lived there escaped the impending Big Freeze by inventing the space elevator - they even intervened to rid the planet of a plague of elves, who attempted to divert humanity onto a different time track. But now it's all gone wrong again - Victorian England has stagnated and the pace of progress has slowed right down. Unless something drastic is done, there won't be time for anyone to invent spaceflight and the human race will be just another layer in the bedrock. Why, though, did history come adrift? Was it Sir Arthur J Nightingale's dismal book about natural selection? Or was it Mr Charles Darwin, whose bestselling Theology of Species made it impossible to refute the divine design of living creatures? Either way, it's not easy task to change history back, as the wizards discover to their cost. He's got to write a different book. And who stopped him writing it in the first place? What went wrong? In Darwin's Watch, Terry Pratchett, Ian Stewart and Jack Cohen weave together a brand new fast-paced Discworld novelette with cutting-edge scientific commentary. The result is fascinating and highly entertaining. And tells the story of the evolution of evolution as it has never been told before...
Terry Pratchett - Moving Pictures
The alchemists of the Discworld have discovered the magic of the silver screen. But what is the dark secret of Holy Wood hill? It's up to Victor Tugelbend ("Can't sing. Can't dance. Can handle a sword a little") and Theda Withel ("I come from a little town you've probably never heard of") to find out... Moving Pictures, the tenth Discworld novel, is a gloriously funny saga set against the background of a world gone mad!
Terry Pratchett - Időtolvaj
AZ IDŐ TERMÉSZETI KINCS, OKOSAN KELL BÁNNI VELE. Mindenki több időt szeretne, és ezt a Korongvilágban csak a képzett szakemberek tudják biztosítani: a történelem tiszteletreméltó szerzetesei. Akik képesek az időt eltárolni; kiszivattyúzzák onnan, ahol csak kárba veszne, mondjuk a tenger fenekéről (mégis, mennyi időre van szüksége egy tőkehalnak?), és átpumpálják például a nagyvárosokba, amelyek lakói állandóan amiatt siránkoznak, hogy hová tűnt az a sok idő. Míg mindig mindenki arról beszél, hogy ideje lenne lassítani egy kicsit, egy ifjú órásmester éppen valami elképzelhetetlent készül tenni: le akar állni. Jobban mondva az időt akarja megállítani, méghozzá úgy, hogy elkészíti a világ első valóban pontos óráját. Ami azt jelenti, hogy a történelem nagyra tartott szerzetesének, Lu Cének, és tanítványának, Ludd Lobsangnak fel kell gyorsítaniuk egy kicsit, hogy megállítsák az időmérőt, még mielőtt elindulna. Ugyanis amint a Tökéletes Óra elüti az időt, az megáll. És akkor kezdődnek csak igazán a gondok.
Terry Pratchett - Snuff
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a policeman taking a holiday would barely have had time to open his suitcase before he finds his first corpse. And Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch is on holiday in the pleasant and innocent countryside, but not for him a mere body in the wardrobe. There are many, many bodies and an ancient crime more terrible than murder. He is out of his jurisdiction, out of his depth, out of bacon sandwiches, occasionally snookered and out of his mind, but never out of guile. Where there is a crime there must be a finding, there must be a chase and there must be a punishment. They say that in the end all sins are forgiven.
Terry Pratchett - Interesting Times
Terry Pratchett satirizes Chinese and Japanese culture and Maoist Communism in this humorous fantasy, part of the multi-volume Discworld series. The incapable and cowardly wizard Rincewind is rescued from a life of glorious boredom on a remote island and unwillingly transported to the Agatean Empire, a repressive regime ruled by a dying, insane emperor, his ambitious, extremely dangerous Grand Vizier, and several feuding noble clans. Once there, Rincewind discovers that his old companion, the tourist Twoflower, has written a highly colored account of their adventures together and that a very polite band of peasant guerrillas is using it as a revolutionary document. To make matters worse, they expect Rincewind--described in the book as the "Great Wizzard"--to lead their rebellion. Meanwhile, the geriatric Cohen the Barbarian and his band of equally aged heroes, the Silver Horde, decide to invade.
Terry Pratchett - Ian Stewart - Jack Cohen - The Science of Discworld IV - Judgement Day
A brilliant new Discworld story from Terry Pratchett. The fourth book in the Science of Discworld series, and this time around dealing with THE REALLY BIG QUESTIONS, Terry Pratchett's brilliant new Discworld story Judgement Day is annotated with very big footnotes (the interleaving chapters) by mathematician Ian Stewart and biologist Jack Cohen, to bring you a mind-mangling combination of fiction, cutting-edge science and philosophy. Marjorie Dawe is a librarian, and takes her job -- and indeed the truth of words -- very seriously. She doesn't know it, but her world and ours -- Roundworld -- is in big trouble. On Discworld, a colossal row is brewing. The Wizards of the Unseen University feel responsible for Roundworld (as one would for a pet gerbil). After all, they brought it into existence by bungling an experiment in Quantum ThaumoDynamics. But legal action is being brought against them by Omnians, who say that the Wizards' god-like actions make a mockery of their noble religion. As the finest legal brains in Discworld (a zombie and a priest) gird their loins to do battle -- and when the Great Big Thing in the High Energy Magic Laboratory is switched on -- Marjorie Dawe finds herself thrown across the multiverse and right in the middle of the whole explosive affair. As God, the Universe and, frankly, Everything Else is investigated by the trio, you can expect world-bearing elephants, quantum gravity in the Escher-verse, evolutionary design, eternal inflation, dark matter, disbelief systems -- and an in-depth study of how to invent a better mousetrap.
Terry Pratchett - Nation
One day the world ends... ... Mau is on his way home from the Boys' Island. Soon he will be a man. And then the wave comes - a huge wave, dragging black night behind it and bringing a schooner, the Sweet Judy, which sails over and through the island rainforest. As the ship comes to a crashing halt, only one soul is left alive (or two, if you count parrots). The village has gone. The Nation as it was has gone. Now there's just Mau, who wears barely anything, a trouserman girl who wears far too much, and an awful lot of big misunderstandings. And a lot of not-knowing-what-to-do, or how to even say that. Together they must forge a new Nation out of the broken pieces. Create a new history. But... WHO IS GUARDING THE NATION? WHERE IS OUR BEER? ... the old history isn't going to just lie down and go away, at least not while the Grandfathers still have a voice. And Mau must look into the past before he can face the future. Wise, witty and filled with Terry Pratchett's inimitable comic satire, this is a terrific adventure that - quite literally - turns the world upside down.
Terry Pratchett - Wings

Terry Pratchett - Mort (angol)

Terry Pratchett - Feet of Clay
There's a werewolf with pre-lunar tension in Ankh-Morpork. And a dwarf with attitude and a golem who's begun to think for itself. But for Commander Vimes, Head of Ankh-Morpork City Watch, that's only the start... There's treason in the air. A crime has happened. He's not only got to find out whodunit, but howdunit too. He's not even sure what they dun. But as soon as he knows what the questions are, he's going to want some answers.
Terry Pratchett - Dodger
Dodger is a tosher - a sewer scavenger living in the squalor of Dickensian London. Everyone who is nobody knows him. Anyone who is anybody doesn't. He used to know his future; it involved a lot of brick-lined tunnels and plenty of filth. But when he rescues a young girl from a beating, things start to get really messy. Now everyone who is anyone wants to get their hands on Dodger.
Terry Pratchett - Sourcery
Rincewind, the protagonist of the first two Discworld books, returns in book five of a long-running humorous fantasy series. In the Discworld, the eighth son of an eighth son is a wizard. When the wizard Ipslore the Red breaks his vow of celibacy and has children himself, his eighth son is a sourceror, capable of frighteningly powerful, reality-changing magic. It's up to cowardly and incompetent wizard Rincewind, aided by expert barbarian thief/aspiring hairdresser Conina, to save the Discworld (again) by confronting the sourceror…who, by the way, is a mere 10 years old.
Terry Pratchett - Csip-csap népek
A kilencéves Sajogi Stefánia úgy gondolja, hogy az ő Sajogi Nagyija – a bölcs pásztorasszonyság – valószínűleg boszorkány lehetett, de Sajogi Nagyi sajnos meghalt, úgyhogy most Stefániára hárul a feladat, hogy megoldja a felmerülő problémákat, amikor furcsa dolgok kezdenek történni a környéken: egy mesebeli szörnyeteg bukkan fel a folyóban, megjelenik egy fej nélküli lovas, és ami a legkülönösebb, hirtelen elözönlik a vidéket az apró, skót szoknyás kék emberkék, a csip-csap népek, akik az új „banyát” keresik. Ők a nac mac fíglik, akik mit sem szeretnek jobban, mint lopni, verekedni és inni. Ekkor azonban Stefánia öccse is eltűnik, és a kislánynak szövetségre kell lépnie a csip-csap népekkel, hogy megmentsék a kisfiút a Dámától...
