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 - 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 - Akkor ​majd éjfélt viselek
Sajogi ​Stefánia, mint a Kréta boszorkánya a rászorulókkal törődés nem valami dicső munkáját végzi. De valaki – vagy valami – félelmet kelt, sötét gondolatokat ültet el a fejekben és haragot szít a boszorkányok ellen. Stefániának fel kell kutatnia a nyugtalanság forrását, és gyökerénél kell legyőznie a gonoszt. Az apró, de kemény csip-csap népek segítségével Stefánia szembeszáll a szörnyű veszéllyel: ha elbukik, vele bukik az egész Kréta is...

Neil Gaiman - Terry Pratchett - Good ​Omens
There ​is a distinct hint of Armageddon in the air. According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (recorded, thankfully, in 1655, before she blew up her entire village and all its inhabitants, who had gathered to watch her burn), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, the Four Bikers of the Apocalypse are revving up their mighty hogs and hitting the road, and the world's last two remaining witch-finders are getting ready to fight the good fight, armed with awkwardly antiquated instructions and stick pins. Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. . . . Right. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon -- each of whom has lived among Earth's mortals for many millennia and has grown rather fond of the lifestyle -- are not particularly looking forward to the coming Rapture. If Crowley and Aziraphale are going to stop it from happening, they've got to find and kill the Antichrist (which is a shame, as he's a really nice kid). There's just one glitch: someone seems to have misplaced him. . . . First published in 1990, Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's brilliantly dark and screamingly funny take on humankind's final judgment is back -- and just in time -- in a new hardcover edition (which includes an introduction by the authors, comments by each about the other, and answers to some still-burning questions about their wildly popular collaborative effort) that the devout and the damned alike will surely cherish until the end of all things.

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 - 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.
