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 - 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 (francia)
Jour ​de fête au pays de Lancre : Vérence (ex-membre de la Guilde des Fous) et Magrat (ex-sorcière), le couple royal, vont baptiser leur petite fille. Vérence a invité bon nombre de familles nobles du coin mais il a commis une erreur de taille en conviant les Margopyr, vieille famille de vampyres du royaume d'à-côté. Lassés de leur vieux château, ces vampyres amateurs de vin rouge ont bien l'intention de s'installer à demeure à Lancre. Les sorcières Mémé, Nounou et Agnès sont décidées à leur faire la peau. Mais comment combattre des vampyres qui mangent des petits fours à l'ail et se baignent dans l'eau bénite ?

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 - Wings
"It ​loomed over them, so big that you had to keep on stepping back and back to see how big it was. It wasn't a thing, it was a bit of shaped sky..." Somewhere in a place so far up there is no down, a ship iswaiting to take the nomes home - back to wherever they came from. With their home in a quarry under threat, one nome -Masklin - knows that they've got to find a way of contacting this ship. It means going to Florida (wherever that is), then getting to the launch of a communications satellite (whatever that is).A ridiculous plan. Impossible. But Masklin doesn't know this so he tries to do it anyway. And the first step is to try and hitch a ride on a new kind of truck, a truck with wings - Concorde .. .He doesn't want to cause any trouble. He only wants to stealone of those space shuttle things. But when you're only four inches high in a world full of humans, things have a nasty habit of getting rather complicated...

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 - 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 - 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...

Terry Pratchett - The ​Carpet People
In ​the beginning there was nothing but endless flatness. Then came the Carpet... That's the old story everyone knows and loves (event if they don't really believe it). But now the Carpet is home to many different tribes and peoples and there's a new story in the making. The story of Fray, sweeping a trail of destruction across the Carpet. The story of power-hungry mouls - and of two Munrung brothers, who set out on an adventure to end all adventures when their village is flattened. It's a story that will come to a terrible end - if someone doesn't do something about it. If everyone doesn't do something about it...

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 - 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 - 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 - 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 - 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 - 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 - 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 - 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.

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 - 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 - Dinero ​a mansalva
Se ​acaba de «liberar» -ejem- una importantísima vacante para dirigir, al tiempo, la casa de la moneda de Ankh-Morpork y el banco más importante de la ciudad. Y ¿quién mejor para ocuparla que Húmedo von Mustachen, ex delincuente y gran artista de las estafas, de encanto legendario? Es una oferta que no puede rechazarse. Sobr e todo cuando la hace el despiadado tirano de la metrópoli, lord Vetinari.Es una suerte que Húmedo necesite distraerse de su rutina de funcionario. Imposible aburrirse cuando se tiene que hacer cargo de la reforma de unas prácticas bancarias centenarias, por no hablar de los empleados viciados, un cajero jefe posiblemente vampírico y un presidente que hay que pasear cada día. Y menos mal que es un superviviente nato, porque su turbulento pasado está a punto de salir a la luz y el Gremio de Asesinos no tardará en dar con él... Ah, y además un mago de trescientos años persigue a su novia...Húmedo está haciendo enemigos por doquier, cuando lo que debería estar haciendo es... ¡dinero a mansalva!«Tan brillante y reluciente como una moneda recién acuñada: ingenioso, ameno y para morirse de risa.»The Times

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?

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 - 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 - 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 ​Wee Free Men
There's ​trouble on the Aching farm - a monster in the river, a headless horseman in the driveway and nightmares spreading down from the hills. And now Tiffany Aching's little brother has been stolen by the Queen of the Fairies (although Tiffany doesn't think this is entirely a bad thing). Tiffany's got to get him back. To help her, she has a weapon (a frying pan), her granny's magic book (well, Diseases of the Sheep, actually) and - 'Crivens! Whut aboot us, ye daftie!' - oh, yes. She's also got the Nac Mac Feegle, the Wee Free Men, the fightin', thievin', tiny blue-skinned pictsies who were thrown out of Fairyland for being Drunk and Disorderly . . . A wise, witty and wonderfully inventive adventure set in the Discworld.

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 - Monstrous ​Regiment
It ​began as a sudden strange fancy... Polly Perks had to become a boy in a hurry. Cutting off her hair and wearing trousers was easy. Learning to fart and belch in public and walk like an ape took more time... And now she's enlisted in the army, and is searching for her lost brother. But there's a war on. There's always a war on. And Polly and her fellow recruits are suddenly in the thick of it, without any training, and the enemy is hunting them. All they have on their side is the most artful sergeant in the army and a vampire with a lust for coffee. Well... they have the Secret. And as they take the war to the heart of the enemy, they have to use all the resources of... the Monstrous Regiment.

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 - Vége ​a mesének
Könnyű ​feladatnak tűnt... Elvégre nehéz lehet azt elintézni, hogy a szolgálólányt ne vegye nőül a herceg? Azonban az ezúttal a messzi Genuvába utazó három boszorkány – Wiharvész Anyó, Ogg Nagyi és Póré Magrat – esetében a dolgok sosem egyszerűek… A szolgálólányok sorsa az, hogy feleségül kell menniük a herceghez. Erről szól az életük. A boldog véget nem lehet feltartóztatni. Legalábbis nem lehetett – mostanáig...

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!
