Snuff - On Sale October 11, 2011
At long last, Lady Sybil has lured her husband, Sam Vimes, on a well-deserved holiday away from the crime and grime of Ankh-Morpork. Yet a policeman will find a crime anywhere if he decides to look hard enough, and it’s not long before a body is discovered, and Sam—out of his jurisdiction, out of his element, and out of bacon sandwiches (thanks to his well-meaning wife)—must rely on his instincts, guile, and street smarts to see justice done.
I Shall Wear Midnight - Now available in paperback
Terry Pratchett concludes the adventures of young witch Tiffany Aching and the tiny-yet endearingly rowdy-Wee Free Men in I Shall Wear Midnight, a gripping, hilarious, and wise fourth and final book.

A Note From Terry
Welcome to the
Discworld. It started out as a parody of all
the fantasy that was around in the big boom
of the early '80s, then turned into a satire
on just about everything, and even I don't
know what it is now. I do know that in that
time there's been at least four people
promoted as "new Terry Pratchetts" so for all
I know I may not even still be me.
And welcome to this
web page that those nice people at
HarperCollins, at great expense, wear and
tear on keyboards, etc., have produced. Wow!
There may even be bits that flash on and off!
At the very least, you should thank them by
buying their books!
On Discworld semaphore
communication is still the fastest thing
around (if you're not a wizard) and that
makes the modems run very slowly.
And now . . . have fun
