Terry Pratchett könyvei a rukkolán
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 - I Shall Wear Midnight
Tiffany Aching, the young witch from "The Wee Free Men", "A Hat Full of Sky" and "Wintersmith" is back in a new adventure featuring Discworld characters both familiar to fans (such as Tiffany, the Wee Free Men, Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg) and new (meet Wee Mad Arthur, the Nac Mac Feegle on the City Watch whose only previous appearance was a brief cameo in Feet of Clay and city witch Mrs Proust - a fabulous Pratchett creation). Oh, and there's a magic book or two, a twist through time, a Cunning Man - and a Giant Man of chalk...
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 - 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 - 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 - 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 - Pyramids
Being trained by the Assassin's Guild in Ankh-Morpork did not fit Teppic for the task assigned to him by fate. He inherited the throne of the desert kingdom of Djelibeybi rather earlier than he expected (his father wasn't too happy about it either), but that was only the beginning of his problems... Pyramids (the book of going forth) is the seventh Discworld novel - and the most outrageously funny to date.
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 - 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 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 - Piramisok
Serdülőkori istennek lenni egyáltalán nem könnyű. Azonban az orgyilkos kiképzésen való részvétel kimondottan tetszik Teppiknek - legalábbis addig, míg tényleg meg nem kell ölnie valakit. Igazán aggódni viszont csak akkor kezd, amikor atyja, a Fáraó eltávozik az örök múmiaságba, és ráhagyja az uralkodás minden nyűgét. Nem elég, hogy mostantól neki kell reggelente előidéznie a napfelkeltét, minden előképzettség nélkül, de még a Piramisok körül is támad egy kis gubanc...
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 - 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 - 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 - Stephen Baxter - A Hosszú Föld
1916: A NYUGATI FRONT. Percy Blakeney közlegény felébred. Üde, tavaszi fűben hever. Madárdalt hall és a szélben susogó falevelek hangját. De hova lett a senki földje sáros, véráztatta és kráterekkel teleszabdalt vidéke? 2015: MADISON, WISCONSIN. Egy zsaru, Monica Jansson egy visszahúzódó – egyesek szerint eszelős, mások szerint veszélyes – tudós kiégett otthonát vizsgálja át, amikor különös ketyerére bukkan: egy dobozkára, benne drótok, egy háromállású kapcsoló meg egy… krumpli. Ez annak a találmánynak a prototípusa, amely mindörökre megváltoztatja az emberiség világszemléletét. ÉS AKKOR MÉG FINOMAN FOGALMAZTUNK… A Hosszú Föld a Korongvilág megalkotója, Terry Pratchett és a népszerű SF-író, Stephen Baxter izgalmas, új együttműködéséből született első regény.
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 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 - 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 - 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 - The Fifth Elephant
Sam Vimes is a man on the run. Yesterday he was a duke, a chief of police and the ambassador to the mysterious fat-rich country of Uberwald. Now he has nothing but his native wit and the gloomy trousers of Uncle Vanya (don't ask). It's snowing. It's freezing. And if he can't make it through the forest to civilization there's going to be a terrible war. But there are monsters on his trail. They're bright. They're fast. They're werewolves - and the're catching up.
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 - Mort (angol)
Although the scythe isn't pre-eminent among the weapons of war, anyone who has been on the wrong end of, say, a peasants' revolt wil know that in skilled hands it is fearsome. For Mort however, it is about to become one of the tools of his trade. From henceforth, Death is no longer going to be the end, merely the means to an end. He has received an offer he can't refuse. As Death's apprentice he'll have free board, use of the company horse and being dead isn't compulsory. It's the dream job until he discovers that it can be a killer on his love life...
Terry Pratchett - La huitième couleur
Dans une dimension lointaine et passablement farfelue, un monde en forme de disque est juché sur le dos d'une tortue. À Ankh-Morpork, l'une des villes de ce Disque-Monde, les habitants croyaient avoir tout vu. Et Deuxfleurs avait l'air tellement inoffensif, bonhomme chétif fidèlement escorté par un Bagage de bois magique circulant sur une myriade de petites jambes. Tellement inoffensif que le Praticien avait chargé le calamiteux sorcier Rincevent de sa sécurité dans la cité quadrillée par la guilde des voleurs et celle des assassins ; mission périlleuse et qui va les conduire loin : dans une caverne de dragons et peut-être jusqu'aux rebords du Disque. Car Deuxfleurs appartenait à l'espèce la plus redoutable qui soit : c'était un touriste...
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 - 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 - Thud!
Koom Valley? That was where the trolls ambushed the dwarfs, or the dwarfs ambushed the trolls. It was far away. It was a long time ago. But if he doesn't solve the murder of just one dwarf, Commander Sam Vimes of Ankh-Morpork City Watch is going to see it fought again, right outside his office. With his beloved Watch crumbling around him and war-drums sounding, he must unravel every clue, outwit every assassin and brave any darkness to find the solution. And darkness is following him. Oh... and at six o'clock every day, without fail, with no excuses, he must go home to read Where's My Cow?, with all the right farmyard noises, to his little boy. There are some things you have to do.
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.

Fourteen fantastically funny stories from master storyteller Sir Terry Pratchett, full of time travel and tortoises, monsters and mayhem!
Terry Pratchett - Equal Rites
The first two Discworld books satirized the classic quest novel. In the third humorous installment of the series, Terry Pratchett takes on traditional gender roles in fantasy. A dying wizard leaves his magical staff to a newborn baby--a baby who, as the eighth son of an eighth son, is fated to be a wizard. But the baby, Eskarina Smith, turns out to be a daughter instead, with a very unique magical destiny indeed. EQUAL RITES introduces a fan favorite character who appears in many of the later books, the iron-willed, irascible, (but secretly good-hearted) witch Granny Weatherwax.
Terry Pratchett - The Witch's Vacuum Cleaner

His friends at the Magic Rectangle can’t help, but the mysterious vacuum cleaner he saw that morning may have something to do with it . . . Fourteen fantastically funny stories from master storyteller Sir Terry Pratchett, full of food fights, pirates, wizards and crooks! ‘Arresting stuff! So funny it’s criminal!’ – PC Gorsebush Jones

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.

Egy korongvilági város regénye, tele utcakölykökkel, megegyezéses alapon tevékenykedő varrónőkkel, lázadókkal, titkosrendőrökkel és a forradalom egyéb gyermekeivel!
