A Hat Full of Sky

Leaving It came crackling over the hills, like an invisible fog. Movement without a body tired it, and it drifted very slowly. It wasn 't thinking now. It had been months since it had last thought, be...

The Light Fantastic

The sun rose slowly, as if it wasn't sure it was worth all the effort. Another Disc day dawned, but very gradually, and this is why. When light encounters a strong magical field it loses ail sense of ...

The Last Hero

The place where the story happened was a world on the back of four elephants perched on the shell of a giant turtle. That's the advantage of space. It's big enough to hold, practically anything, and s...

The Last Continent

Discworld is a world and a mirror of worlds. This is not a book about Australia. No, it's about somewhere entirley different which just happens to be, here and there, a bit . . . Australian. Still . ....

Lords and Ladies

This one is different. I can't ignore the history of what has gone before. Granny Weatherwax first turned up in Equal Rites. In Wyrd Sisters she became the unofficial head of a tiny coven consisting o...

The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents

CHAPTER 1 One day, when he was naughty, Mr Bunnsy looked over the hedge into Farmer Fred's field and it was full of green lettuces. Mr Bunnsy, however, was not full of lettuces. This did not seem fair...

This is the bright candlelit room where the life-timers are stored – shelf upon shelf of them, squat hourglasses, one for every living person, pouring their fine sand from the future into the past. Th...

Eric

The bees of Death are big and black, they buzz low and sombre, they keep their honey in combs of wax as white as alter candles. The honey is black as night, thick as sin and sweet as treacle. It is we...

Equal Rites

I would like it to be clearly understood that this book is not wacky. Only dumb redheads in fifties' sitcoms are wacky. No, it's not zany, either. This is a story about magic and where it goes and per...

The Fifth Elephant

They say the world is flat and supported on the back of four elephants who themselves stand on the back of a giant turtle. They say that the elephants, being such huge beasts, have bones of rock and i...

Monstrous Regiment

Polly cut off her hair in front of the mirror, feeling slightly guilty about not feeling very guilty about doing so. It was supposed to be her crowning glory, and everyone said it was beautiful, but s...

Thief of Time

According to the First Scroll of Wen the Eternally Surprised, Wen stepped out of the cave where he had received enlightenment and into the dawning light of the first day of the rest of his life. He st...

Wyrd Sisters

The wind howled. Lightning stabbed at the earth erratically, like an inefficient assassin. Thunder rolled back and forth across the dark, rain-lashed hills. The night was as black as the inside of a c...

Witches Abroad

Once upon a time such a universe was considered unusual and, possibly, impossible. But then ... it used to be so simple, once upon a time. Because the universe was full of ignorance all around and the...
