Terry Pratchett könyvei a rukkolán


Terry Pratchett - Fegyvertársak
„LÉGY ​A VÁROSŐRSÉG EMBERE! AZ ŐRSÉG IGAZI FÉRFIAKRA VÁR!” …de kénytelen beérni Karott káplárral (aki elvileg törpe), Zsámoly segédőrrel (aki ténylegesen törpe), Törmelék segédőrrel (aki troll), Angua segédőrrel (aki nő… az idő túlnyomó részében) és Göcsört káplárral (akit hivatalosan kizártak az emberi fajból sunnyogásért). Ráadásul mindannyiuknak sürgős segítségre van szükségük. Mert pusztán huszonnégy órájuk maradt arra, hogy megtisztítsák a várost – és most Ankh-Morporkról beszélünk…

Terry Pratchett - Gördülő ​kövek
MÍG ​A TÖBBI GYEREK XILOFONNAL JÁTSZOTT, ZSUZSA EGYSZERŰEN CSAK MEGKÉRTE A NAGYAPJÁT, HOGY VEGYE LE AZ INGÉT. Igen. Halál a családban. Nem könnyű annak beilleszkednie a többiek közé, akinek a nagyapja fehér lovon ülve kaszát lóbál – különösen, ha az illetőnek hirtelen be kell szállnia a családi üzletbe is, és ennek kapcsán keverni kezdik a fogtündérrel. Különösen akkor, ha ráadásul azzal az új, ragályos zenével is fel kell vennie a harcot, amely megszállta a Korongvilágot. A renegát, törvényenkívüli zenével. Amely megváltoztatja az embert. Kőzenének hívják. Van ritmusa, és lehet rá táncolni, de... Él. És nem halkul el egykönnyen.

Terry Pratchett - Fliegende Fetzen
Ehhez a könyvhöz nincs fülszöveg, de ettől függetlenül még rukkolható/happolható.

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 ​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 - 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 - 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 - A ​Kaszás
_"A ​Halálnak meg kell történnie. Erről szól az egész élet. Az ember él, utána meg meghal. Ez nem maradhat csak úgy egyszerűen abba."_ A Halál eltűnt - feltételezhetően... izé... eltávozott. És ez ahhoz a fajta káoszhoz vezet, amely _mindig_ bekövetkezik, ha egy fontos közszolgáltatás átmenetileg szünetel. Mindeközben egy messzi-messzi kis farmon egy magas, sötét idegen elképesztő tehetségről tesz tanúbizonyságot a kaszálás terén. A termést is le kell aratnia valakinek...

Terry Pratchett - Going ​Postal
Moist ​von Lipwig is a con artist... ..and a fraud and a man faced with a life choice: be hanged, or put Ankh-Morpork's ailing postal service back on its feet. It's a tough decision. But he's got to see that the mail gets through, come rain, hail, sleet, dogs, the Post Office Workers' Friendly and Benevolent Society, the evil chairman of the Grand Trunk Semaphore Company, and a midnight killer. Getting a date with Adora Bell Dearheart would be nice, too.

Terry Pratchett - Truckers
To ​the thousands of tiny nomes under the floorboards of a large department store, there is no Outside. Things like Day and Night, Sun and Rain are just daft old legends. Then a devastating piece of news shatters their existence: the Store - their whole world - is to be demolished. And it's up to Masklin, one of the last nomes to come into the Store, to mastermind an unbelievable escape plan that will take all the nomes into the dangers of the great Outside... The first title in the magnificent trilogy, The Bromeliad.

Terry Pratchett - Wachen! ​Wachen!
Eine ​geheime Bruderschaft ruft mittels eines gestohlenen magischen Buches einen Drachen herbei. Das Fabelwesen soll helfen, einen neuen König einzusetzen, der den Verschwörern gefügig ist. Doch der Drache setzt sich selbst als Herrscher ein – schläft er doch so gern auf den gemütlichen Goldreserven der Stadt. Nur eine Handvoll Wachen begehrt gegen den geschuppten König auf: Hauptmann Mumm, der beinahe zwei Meter große Zwerg Karotte und eine adlige Sumpfdrachenzüchterin machen sich auf, den Tyrannen zu vertreiben.

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 - Night ​Watch
Truth! ​Justice! Freedom! And a hard-boiled egg! Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch had it all. But now he's back in his own rough, tough past without even the clothes he was standing up in when the lightning struck. Living in the past is hard. Dying in the past is incredibly easy. But he must survive, because he has a job to do. He must track down a murderer, teach his younger self how to be a good copper and change the outcome of a bloody rebellion. There's a problem: if he wins, he's got no wife, no child, no future. A Discworld Tale of One City, with a full chorus of street urchins, ladies of negotiable affection, rebels, secret policemen and other children of the revolution.

Terry Pratchett - The ​Light Fantastic
'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. Equally it does not need one well-meaning tourist and his luggage which has a mind of its own. Which is a shame because that's all there is...

Terry Pratchett - Small ​Gods
Terry ​Pratchett tackles a tough topic in the 13th satiric fantasy in the Discworld series: religious extremism. The land of Omnia is a repressive theocracy ruled by priests and inquisitors, who believe more in their own power than in the Great God Om. This is a somewhat difficult situation for Om, because his power is dependent on the faith of his worshippers. Only one person, the simple novice Brutha, truly believes in Om and is capable of hearing the voice of the god, who, incidentally, is currently trapped within the body of a small tortoise.

Terry Pratchett - Lords ​and Ladies
The ​fairies are back - but this time they don't just want your teeth... Granny Weatherwax and her tiny coven are up against real elves. It's Midsummer Night, No time for dreaming... With full supporting cast of dwarfs, wizards, trolls, Morris dancers and one orang-utan. And lots of hey-nonny-nonny and blood all over the place.

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 - A ​Blink of the Screen
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.

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 - 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 - 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.

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 - Stephen Baxter - The ​Long Utopia
The ​fourth novel in Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter’s internationally bestselling “Long Earth” series, hailed as “a brilliant science fiction collaboration . . . a love letter to all Pratchett fans, readers, and lovers of wonder everywhere” (Io9). 2045-2059. Human society continues to evolve on Datum Earth, its battered and weary origin planet, as the spread of humanity progresses throughout the many Earths beyond. Lobsang, now an elderly and complex AI, suffers a breakdown, and disguised as a human attempts to live a “normal” life on one of the millions of Long Earth worlds. His old friend, Joshua, now in his fifties, searches for his father and discovers a heretofore unknown family history. And the super-intelligent post-humans known as “the Next” continue to adapt to life among “lesser” humans. But an alarming new challenge looms. An alien planet has somehow become “entangled” with one of the Long Earth worlds and, as Lobsang and Joshua learn, its voracious denizens intend to capture, conquer, and colonize the new universe—the Long Earth—they have inadvertently discovered. World-building, the intersection of universes, the coexistence of diverse species, and the cosmic meaning of the Long Earth itself are among the mind-expanding themes explored in this exciting new installment of Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter's extraordinary Long Earth series.

Terry Pratchett - Stephen Baxter - The ​Long Earth
1916: ​the Western Front, France. Private Percy Blakeney wakes up. He is lying on fresh spring grass. He can hear birdsong, and the wind in the leaves in the trees. Where has the mud, blood and blasted landscape of No Man's Land gone? 2015: Madison, Wisconsin. Cop Monica Jansson has returned to the burned-out home of one Willis Linsay, a reclusive and some said mad, others dangerous, scientist. It was arson but, as is often the way, the firemen seem to have caused more damage than the fire itself. Stepping through the wreck of a house, there's no sign of any human remains but on the mantelpiece Monica finds a curious gadget - a box, containing some wiring, a three-way switch and a... potato. It is the prototype of an invention that Linsay called a 'stepper'. An invention he put up on the web for all the world to see and use, an invention that would change the way mankind viewed his world Earth forever. And that's an understatement if ever there was one... ...because the stepper allowed the person using it to step sideways into another America, another Earth, and if you kept on stepping, you kept on entering even more Earths... this is the Long Earth. It's our Earth but one of a chain of parallel worlds, lying side by side, each differing from its neighbour by really very little (or actually quite a lot). It's an infinite chain, offering 'steppers' an infinite landscape of infinite possibilities. And the further away you travel, the stranger - and sometimes more dangerous - the Earths get. The sun and moon always shine, the basic laws of physics are the same. However, the chance events which have shaped our particular Earth, such as the dinosaur-killer asteroid impact, might not have happened and things may well have turned out rather differently. But, until Willis Linsay invented his stepper, only our Earth hosted mankind... or so we thought. Because it turns out there are some people who are natural 'steppers', who don't need his invention and now the great migration has begun...

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 - The ​Color of Magic
The ​beginning of the hilarious and irreverent series that has more than 80 million copies worldwide, The Color of Magic is where we meet tourist Twoflower and wizard guide Ricewind, and follow them on their always-bizarre journeys. A writer who has been compared to Mark Twain, Kurt Vonnegut, and Douglas Adams, Sir Terry Pratchett has created a complex, yet zany world filled with a host of unforgettable characters who navigate around a profound fantasy universe, complete with its own set of cultures and rules.

Terry Pratchett - Stephen Baxter - The ​Long Mars
2040-2045: ​In the years after the catalcysmic Yellowstone eruption there is a massive economic dislocation as populations flee Datum Earth to the Long Earth worlds. Sally, Joshua, Lobsang are all involved in this perilous work when, out of the blue, Sally is contacted by her long-vanished father and inventor of the original Stepper, Willis Linsay. He is planning a fantastic voyage across the Long Mars – but he has ulterior motives for wanting Sally to make the journey with him. For what he seeks is an advanced alien technology which he believes will help mankind’s post-Yellowstone recovery. Meanwhile Maggie Kauffman has embarked on a incredible journey of her own, leading an expedition to the outer limits of the far Long Earth. And Joshua becomes embroiled in the appearance of the Next: super-bright post humans who are beginning to emerge from their 'Long Childhood' in the community called Happy Landings. A Next boy has been rejected by normal-human society and is incarcerated in the Madison Home and, now the authorities - inevitably afraid of anything or anyone not deemed 'normal' - order a crackdown on the abnormal Next children, sequestring them together in a military base. As Joshua and Nelson liberate the children a dramatic showdown seems inevitable over whether to eliminate this potential rival to mankind from the Long Earth...

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!

Terry Pratchett - Ian Stewart - Jack Cohen - The ​Science of Discworld
When ​a thaumic experiment goes adrift, the wizards of Unseen University find that they've accidentally created a new universe. Within it is a planet that they name Roundworld, an extraordinary place where neither magic nor common sense seems to stand a chance against logic. The universe, of course, is our own. And Roundworld is Earth. As the wizards watch their accidental creation grow, we follow the story of our universe from the primal singularity of the Big Bang to the evolution of life on Earth and beyond. This original Terry Pratchett story, interwoven with chapters from Jack Cohen and Ian Stewart, offers a wonderful wizards-eye view of our universe. Once you've seen the world from a Discworld perspective, it will never seem the same again...

Terry Pratchett - Soul ​Music
"Other ​children got given xylophones. Susan just had to ask her grandfather to take his vest off." Yes. There's a Death in the family. It's hard to grow up normally when Grandfather rides a white horse and wields a scythe - especially when you have to take over the family business, and everyone mistakes you for the Tooth Fairy. And especially when you have to face the new and addictive music that has entered the Discworld. It's Lawless. It changes people. It's called Music with Rocks In. It's got a beat and you can dance to it, but ... It's alive. And it won't fade away.
