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 - 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.

Ehhez a könyvhöz nincs fülszöveg, de ettől függetlenül még rukkolható/happolható.

Terry Pratchett - Raising ​Steam
It's ​all change for Moist von Lipwig, swindler, conman, and (naturally) head of the Royal Bank and Post Office. A steaming, clanging new invention, driven by Dick Simnel, the man with t'flat cap and t'sliding rule, is drawing astonished crowds - including a few particularly keen young men armed with notepads and very sensible rainwear - and suddenly it's a matter of national importance that the trains run on time. Moist does not enjoy hard work. His ...vital input at the bank and post office consists mainly of words, which are not that heavy. Or greasy. And it certainly doesn't involve rickety bridges, runaway cheeses or a fat controller with knuckledusters. What he does enjoy is being alive, which may not be a perk of running the new railway. Because, of course, some people have Objections, and they'll go to extremes to stop locomotion in its tracks.

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 - Die ​Farben der Magie
Der ​Magier Rincewind ist vom Pech verfolgt – erst wird er von einem geltungssüchtigen Zauberspruch befallen, dann verliert er seine Stelle an der Unsichtbaren Universität. Fortan verdingt er sich als Fremdenführer für den ersten Touristen auf der Scheibenwelt. Und natürlich geht auf der Reise so ziemlich alles schief … – Mit diesem Band beginnt Terry Pratchetts legendärer »Scheibenwelt«-Zyklus.

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 - Carpe ​Jugulum
FOHÁSSZAL ​OTTOKÁR NEM TÚL JÓ IDŐBEN AKARJA GYAKOROLNI PAPI HIVATÁSÁT. VAGY NEM TÚL JÓ HELYEN. AZT HITTE, CSUPÁN EGY EGYSZERŰ SZERTARTÁS MIATT KELL LANCRE-BE MENNIE, DE RÁ KELL ÉBREDNIE, HOGY A VÁMPÍROK ÉS A BOSZORKÁNYOK KÖZÖTT DÚLÓ HÁBORÚ KELLŐS KÖZEPÉBE CSÖPPENT. Boszorkányok alatt pedig az ifjú Ágnes értendő, aki _tényleg_ nem tud még saját magával sem egyetérteni; Magrat, aki a boszorkánykodást a pelenkákkal próbálja ötvözni; Ogg Nagyi… …valamint Wiharvész Anyó, aki már önmagában súlyos gondot jelent. A vámpírok viszont intelligensek, a stílus mellett díszes mellényekkel is rendelkeznek, és kiszabadultak. Ők is szeretnének egy harapásnyit a jövőből. Fohásszal Ottokár tudja, hogy vele van az ima ereje – de azt kívánja, bárcsak lenne nála egy bárd is.

Terry Pratchett - Johnny ​and the Dead
Sell ​the cemetery? Over their dead bodies... Not many people can see the dead (not many would want to). Twelve-year-old Johnny Maxwell can. And he's got bad news for them: the council want to sell the cemetery as a building site. But the dead aren't going to take it lying down... especially since it's Halloween tomorrow. Besides, they're beginning to find that life is a lot more fun than it was when they were... well... alive. Particularly if they break a few rules...

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 - Éjjeli ​őrjárat
IGAZSÁG! ​MÉLTÁNYOSSÁG! SZABADSÁG! ÉS EGY KEMÉNY TOJÁS! Vinkó Szilárdnak, az Ankh-Morporki Városőrség parancsnokának mindene megvan. Ám amikor visszakerül a saját kemény, küzdelmes ifjúkorába, még az a ruhája sem marad meg, amit akkor viselt, amikor beütött a ménkű. A múltban élni nehéz. Meghalni viszont hihetetlenül könnyű. De neki valahogy boldogulnia kell, mivel feladatok várnak rá: el kell kapnia egy gyilkost, meg kell tanítania fiatalkori önmagának, mit jelent jó zsarunak lenni, és meg kell változtatnia egy véres lázadás kimenetelét. Az egésszel csupán egy gond van: ha győz, nem vár rá sem feleség, sem gyermek, sem jövő. Egy korongvilági város regénye, tele utcakölykökkel, megegyezéses alapon tevékenykedő varrónőkkel, lázadókkal, titkosrendőrökkel és a forradalom egyéb gyermekeivel!

Terry Pratchett - Steven Ross - The ​Colour of Magic
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.

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 - The ​Compleat Discworld Atlas
Unseen ​University are proud to present the most comprehensive map and guide to the Disc yet produced. In this noble endeavour, drawing upon the hard won knowledge of many great and, inevitably, late explorers, one may locate on a detailed plan of our world such fabled realms as the Condiment Isles, trace the course of the River Kneck as it deposits silt and border disputes in equal abundance on the lands either side, and contemplate the vast deserts of Klatch and Howondaland - a salutary lesson in the perils of allowing ones goats to graze unchecked. This stunning work brings to life the lands and locations of the Discworld stories in a way never seen before. Accompanied by lavish full-colour illustrations and a detailed world map, this is a must-have for any Discworld fan.

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 - 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 - 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 - 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 - 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 - Vészbanyák
A ​boszorkányok természetüknél fogva nem igazán társas lények, vezetőket pedig egészen biztosan nem választanak maguknak. De nem létező vezetőik közül a legnagyobb tiszteletnek Wiharvész Anyó örvend közöttük. Azonban még _ő_ is kénytelen belátni, hogy a királyi udvar cselszövényeibe beleavatkozni jóval bonyolultabb, mint azt bizonyos színművek el szeretnék hitetni az emberrel…

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 - The ​Last Continent
There's ​nothing like the issue of evolution to get under the skin of academics. Especially when those same academics are by chance or bad judgement deposited at a critical evolutionary turning point when one wrong move could have catastrophic results for the future. Unfortunately in the hands of such an inept and cussed group of individuals, the sensitive issue of causality is sadly only likely to receive the same scant respect that they show to one another...

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...

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 - 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 - Graham Higgins - Guards! ​Guards!
Some ​night-time prowler is turning the (mostly) honest citizens of Ankh-Morpork into something resembling small charcoal biscuits. And that's a real problem for Captain Vimes, who must tramp the mean streets of the naked city looking for a seventy-foot-long fire-breathing dragon which, he believes, can help him with his enquiries. But there's more - now we get to see Ankh-Morpork in all its glory; illustrations so vibrant you can practically smell and taste the denizens of this delightful city (although with Corporal Nobbs, you might rather wish you didn't have to). All rendered in painstaking detail by Graham Higgins (who feels he now knows altogether far too much about the murky goings on inside Nobbs' head).

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 - Hazafiak
A ​KORONGVILÁG HÁBORÚRA KÉSZÜL RENGETEG OLAJOS ÉS TINTAHALLAL, FEGYVERESSEL, HALÁSSZAL ÉS LEGALÁBB EGY MARKOTÁNYOSSAL. A tenger mélyéről egy szélkakas emelkedik fel, és hirtelen mindenki tudni véli, merről fúj a szél. Az új földdel együtt azonban ősrégi sérelmek is napvilágot látnak. Miközben két sereg menetel egymás felé, Vinkó Szilárdnak, az Ankh-Morporki Városőrség parancsnokának csupán néhány órája van arra, hogy egy bűnténnyel megbirkózzon, amely olyan irdatlan nagy, hogy még törvény sem született ellene. Úgy hívják, „háború”. Mindezek során a parancsnok kellemetlen ellenfelekkel kénytelen szembenézni, akik arra törekednek, hogy elkapják őt… és akkor csak a vele azonos oldalon állókat említettük. Lehet, hogy az ellenség még náluk is rosszabb.

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 - The ​Colour of Magic
On ​a world supported on the back of a giant turtle (sex unknown), a gleeful, explosive, wickedly eccentric expedition sets out. There's an avaricious but inept wizard, a naive tourist whose luggage moves on hundreds of dear little legs, dragons who only exist if you believe in them, and of course THE EDGE of the planet... "An ideal introduction to the worlds of science fiction, fantasy and humourous writing for reluctant and avid readers alike." _Booktrusted News_

Terry Pratchett - A ​mágia színe
Valahol ​messze, az űr egy eldugott zugában lavíroz A'Tuin, a gigászi teknőc. Hátán a lenyűgözően őrült, páratlanul szórakoztató, sosem látott hősöktől és elvetemültektől hemzsegő Korongvilág... Kard és varázslat. Bárd és kacagás. Kalandok a világ pereméig - és még annál is tovább!
