Terry Pratchett was (unfortunately, was) in my opinion the best fantasy writer of the past many years. His characters, no matter what species, interact show our prejudices bringing a tale to an unexpected conclusion. RIP Terry Pratchett, this must be his last book

Description

The number one bestselling new Discworld novel sees the Disc's first train come steaming into town. 'I could tell which of my fellow tube passengers had downloaded it to their e-readers by the bouts of spontaneous laughter' Ben Aaronovitch, Guardian The Discworld is very much like our own - if our own were to consist of a flat planet balanced on the back of four elephants which stand on the back of a giant turtle, that is . . . Change is in the air for Moist von Lipwig, swindler, con-man, and (naturally) head of the Royal Bank and Post Office. A steaming, clanging new invention - a steam locomotive named Iron Girder, to be precise - is drawing astonished crowds. Suddenly it's a matter of national importance that the trains run on time. Moist does not enjoy hard work. His 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 Moist 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. ____________________ The Discworld novels can be read in any order but Raising Steam is the third and final book in the Moist von Lipwig series.

Author Biography:

Terry Pratchett was the acclaimed creator of the global bestselling Discworld series, the first of which, The Colour of Magic, was published in 1983. In all, he was the author of over fifty bestselling books which have sold over 100 million copies worldwide. His novels have been widely adapted for stage and screen, and he was the winner of multiple prizes, including the Carnegie Medal. He was awarded a knighthood for services to literature in 2009, although he always wryly maintained that his greatest service to literature was to avoid writing any. www.terrypratchettbooks.com
