The thirty-fourth Discworld novel, now available in hardback as part of the Discworld Collector's Library.
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.
Pratchett can make you giggle helplessly and then grin grimly at
the sharpness of his wit.
'Thud! has a serious theme: racial intolerance. That Pratchett can explore this while still making us laugh is a tribute to the integrity of his created world ... Extremely funnym but it's also very near the knuckleduster.'
