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 - 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 - 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 - Only You Can Save Mankind
If not you, who else? As the mighty alien fleet from the latest computer game thunders across the screen, Johnny prepares to blow them into the usual million pieces. And they send him a message: We surrender. They're not supposed to do that! They're supposed to die. And computer joysticks don't have 'Don't Fire' buttons...
Terry Pratchett - Égből szőtt kalap
„LÁTUNK TÉGED. ÉS MOST MÁR MI TE VAGYUNK…” Egyetlen igazi boszorkány sem lépne ki csak úgy a testéből, és hagyná azt gazdátlanul. Sajogi Stefánia megteszi. És valami éppen arra vár, hogy átvehesse az uralmat egy kapóra jött test felett. Valami ősi és rettenetes, ami nem tud meghalni. Hogy Stefánia elbánjon vele, el kell jutnia annak a szívébe, ami őt boszorkánnyá teszi. Túl kell jutnia az „Én nem tudom”-on. Ám még a nac mag fíglik – a Korongvilág legzsiványabb mandói, akik imádnak a nyomasztó túlerővel szembeszállni – segítségével sem biztos, hogy képes lesz visszaszereznie önmagát… A Sajogi Stefánia-sorozat második kötete
Terry Pratchett - Ian Stewart - Jack Cohen - The Science Of Discworld II - The Globe
The planet Earth has picked up a parasite life form - elves. They get everywhere. And they like humans to be superstitious, fearful and frightened of thunder. They're after our future and must be stopped... but by who? Enter the wizards of the Unseen University who, in the best-selling Science of Discworld unwittingly created Earth and our own universe. At the time they quite failed to notice humanity. (Well, we've only been around for a million years, so we're easily overlooked...) But now, at last, they've found us. The Globe is a unique book, weaving together a fast-paced Discworld novelette with cutting-edge scientific commentary on the evolution and development of the human mind, culture, language, art, and science. The result - as the wizards grapple with the nature of Good and Evil, and history is rewritten several times over - is a fascinating and brilliantly original view of the world we live in.
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 - Stephen Baxter - A Hosszú háború
Egy évtizeddel _A Hosszú Föld_ eseményei után, az emberiség szétszóródik az átlépés megnyitotta új világokon. Ahol egykor Joshua és Lobszang járt afféle pionírként, most léghajóflották kötik össze a Földeket a kereskedelem, a kultúra és a felfedezés szálaival. Az emberiség a maga képére formálja a Hosszú Földet – cserébe pedig a Hosszú Föld a saját képére formálja az emberiséget. Egy, magát Valhallának nevező új „Amerika” jelenik meg több mint egymillió lépésre az Irányjel Földtől. És Valhalla egyre nyughatatlanabbá válik az Irányjel kormányának vezetése alatt… Az eltelt évek során a trollok – a hangyabolyszerűen gondolkodó kecses humanoidok – dala átjárta a Hosszú Földet. De most ezek a trollok is kezdenek lépéseket tenni az emberiség elkövette, ész nélküli kizsákmányolás ellen. Az immár házas Joshuát, aki egyben apa is, Lobszang magához kéreti. Szembe kell szállnia az egymással is ütköző válságokkal, amelyek azzal fenyegetik a Hosszú Földet, hogy olyan háborúba taszítják, amilyet az emberiség még sosem vívott…
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 - Mozgó képek
A Korongvilág alkimistái felfedezték az ezüst képernyő mágiáját. Mily sötét titkot rejteget a Holivud domb? Viktor Tugelbendre ("Nem tudok énekelni. Nem tudok táncolni. Valamennyire tudom forgatni a kardot") és Theda Withelre ("Egy olyan kis faluból jöttem, hogy valószínűleg soha nem hallottál róla") vár hogy kiderítse...
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 - 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 - 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 - Unseen Academicals
Football has come to the ancient city of Ankh-Morpork - not the old fashioned, grubby pushing and shoving, but the new, fast football with pointy hats for goalposts and balls that go gloing when you drop them. And now, the wizards of Unseen University must win a football match, without using magic, so they're in the mood for trying everything else. The prospect of the Big Match draws in a street urchin with a wonderful talent for kicking a tin can, a maker of jolly good pies, a dim but beautiful young woman, who might just turn out to be the greatest fashion model there has ever been, and the mysterious Mr Nutt (and no one knows anything much about Mr Nutt, not even Mr Nutt, which worries him, too). As the match approaches, four lives are entangled and changed forever. Because the thing about football - the important thing about football - is that it is not just about football. Here we go! Here we go! Here we go!
Terry Pratchett - The Shepherd's Crown
Deep in the Chalk, something is stirring. The owls and the foxes can sense it, and Tiffany Aching feels it in her boots. An old enemy is gathering strength. This is a time of endings and beginnings, old friends and new, a blurring of edges and a shifting of power. Now Tiffany stands between the light and the dark, the good and the bad. As the fairy horde prepares for invasion, Tiffany must summon all the witches to stand with her. To protect the land. Her land. There will be a reckoning . . .
Terry Pratchett - Maskerade
The show must go on, as murder, music and mayhem run riot in the night... The Opera House, Ankh-Morpork... a huge, rambling building, where innocent young sopranos are lured to their destiny by a strangely-familiar evil mastermind in a hideously-deformed evening dress... At least, he hopes so. But Granny Weatherwax, Discworld's most famous witch, is in the audience. And she doesn't hold with that sort of thing. So there's going to be trouble (but nevertheless a good evening's entertainment with murders you can really hum...)
Terry Pratchett - Carpe Jugulum (angol)
Mightily Oats has not picked a good time to be a priest. He thought he'd come to Lancre for a simple ceremony. Now he's caught up in a war between vampires and witches. There's Young Agnes, who is really in two minds about everything. Magrat, who is trying to combine witchcraft and nappies, Nanny Ogg... and Granny Weatherwax, who is big trouble. And the vampires are intelligent. They've got style and fancy waistcoats. They're out of the casket, and want a bite of the future. Mightily Oats knows he has a prayer, but he wishes he had an axe.
Terry Pratchett - A Hat Full of Sky
'Crivens!' A real witch never casually steps out of her body, leaving it empty. Eleven-year-old Tiffany does. And there's something just waiting for a handy body to take over. Something ancient and horrible, which can't die... Wise, witty and wonderful. A Hat Full of Sky is Terry Pratchett's second novel about Tiffany and the Wee Free Men - the rowdiest, toughest, smelliest bunch of fairies ever. They'll fight anything. And even they might not be enough to save Tiffany...
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 - The Discworld Mapp
They said it couldn't be done. Well, it has been done, proving them wrong once again. After years of research, cunningly contrived in as many minutes, the Discworld has its map. It takes full account of the historic and much documented expeditions of the Discworld's feted (or at least fated) explorers: General Sir Roderick Purdeigh, Lars Larsnephew, Llamedos Jones, Lady Alice Venturi, Ponce da Quirm and, of course, Venter Borass. Now travellers on this circular world can see it all: from Klatch to the Ramtops, from Cori Celesti to the Circle Sea, from Genua to Bhangbhangduc. The great cities of Hunghung, Pseudopolis, Al Khali and, of course, Ankh-Morpork are placed with loving care upon this world which is carried through space by Great A'Tuin.
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 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 - Sofőrök
Manák léteznek. Itt élnek közöttünk, ill. alattunk. Ez nem érzelmi kérdés. És nem egy izé... Tény. Ha közelebbről is érdekel a világuk, itt az idő, hogy összemenj, és elfoglald helyed a manák világában. Izgalom, kaland és végtelen lehetőségek várnak rád az Áruházban és azon túl. Majd, mert a manák kalandjai folytatódnak a trilógia további köteteiben: FÖLDVÁJÓK, SZÁRNYALÓK. Az első könyvben Masklin, a kintről jött manák vezetője meggyőzi az áruházi manákat arról, hogy létezik a külvilág. Az Izé - ami nem egyéb, mint egy gondolkodó, sőt érző számítógép - felvilágosítja az apró lényeket, hogy igazi otthonuk nem a Föld. Egy űrhajó évezredek óta vár rájuk, hogy hazavihesse őket. A manák megszervezik a menekülést, ami nem kevés vesződséggel jár, hiszen a világot ostoba, de hatalmas emberek uralják.
Terry Pratchett - Jingo
Discworld goes to war, with armies of sardines, warriors, fishermen, squid and at least oen very camp follower. As two armies march, Commander Vimes of Ankh-Morpork City Watch faces unpleasant foes who are out to get him... and that's just the people on his side. The enemy might be even worse. Jingo, the 21st in Terry Pratchett' s phenomenally successful Discworld series, makes the World Cup look like a friendly five-a-side.
Terry Pratchett - Men at Arms
In the 15th Discworld fantasy novel, Terry Pratchett has fun with hard-boiled police procedurals and racial diversity programs. Captain Vimes is preparing to leave the Watch to marry Lady Sybil Ramkin when his attention is captured by the mysterious murders of a dwarf and a clown, an exploded swamp dragon, and the theft of a dangerously compelling weapon from the Assassin's Guild. It all has something to do with an obsessed nobleman and yet another plot to restore the monarchy to the city of Ankh-Morpork, despite the fact that the rightful heir, the scrupulously honest Corporal Carrot, has no interest in being king.
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 - The Compleat Ankh-Morpork
Greetings, adventurer! We lay before you this most comprehensive gazetteer encompassing all the streets of Ankh-Morpork, as well as information on its principal businesses, hotels, taverns, inns, and places of entertainment and refreshment, enhanced by the all-new and compleat map of our great city state. Our city has grown well beyond its ancient walls, but the remit of this commission from the honourable Guild of Merchants was to 'map the city', the pulsing organ of commerce and culture, the heart as opposed to the body, and this we have done. In spades. We ask that when you pore over this glorious work you spare some thought for the humble cartographers and surveyors who made journeys into the darker corners of our metropolis - no less dangerous than the wilds of Skund or Bhangbhangduc. To some the only memorial is the map you now possess. Others, in their quest for knowledge, paid the highest price that scholarship demands, which is to say, a day off in lieu. And so we dedicate this map and these accompanying words to the officers, councilors and members of the Merchants' Guild and to all who will find in its pages paths yet to tread and places yet to explore within the magnificent wonder that is the city of Ankh-Morpork.
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 - The Pratchett Portfolio
Terry Pratchett's incredible Discworld, floating through space on the backs of four elephants* standing on a giant turtle, supports some of the most popular characters ever imagined in the world of fantasy fiction. But the Discworld people are real, and here they are, warts (except, of course, in the case of Granny Weatherwax) and all, from Rincewind the incompetent wizard to Greebo, the rather too human cat. *once there were five, but that's another story.
Terry Pratchett - Stephen Briggs - The Wit and Wisdom of Discworld
For a quarter of a century, Terry Pratchett's Discworld - a flat world balanced on the backs of four elephants, which are standing on the back of a giant turtle, flying through space - has enchanted readers with its stories of a vast and diverse population, from ineffectual wizards to reformed thieves, and vampires who have foresworn the drinking of blood. It is a world that is vastly different from our own... except when is isn't. The Wit and Wisdom of Discworld is a collection of the wittiest, pithiest and wisest quotations from this mad, chaotic and seductive universe, complied by Stephen Briggs, a man who, they say, knows even more about Discworld than Terry Pratchett himself. Guaranteed to transport you back to your favourite or forgotten Discworld moments, it is the perfect book for die-hard Pratchett fans, with its comprehensive index an aid to finding specific quotations: as well as an ideal introduction for anyone coming to the Discworld for the first time.
