About the Author

Bio

Author Picture

Terry Pratchett

Terry Pratchett sold his first short story, The  Hades Business, at the tender age of 13 and bought a typewriter with the  proceeds. His first novel, The Carpet People, was published when he was 23 and he continued to write in his spare time while working on local  newspapers.

Oddly in his thirties he left journalism, and spent the next  eight years as a press officer for the Central Electricity Generating  Board. And then in 1983 The Colour of Magic, the first Discworld novel,  was published and the rest is - as they say - history.

In 1987 Terry realised that writing was his future and he gave up his job. These days, he lives behind a keyboard in Wiltshire and says  he 'doesn't want to get a life, because it feels as though he is trying  to lead three already'. He is passionate about orang-utans but doesn't give a monkey's about anything else.

As well as being awarded an OBE in 1998 and an honorary Doctorate of Literature from Warwick University in 1999, he is one of the most popular authors writing today. He has sold more than 45 million books and his  work has been translated into 27 languages.



Synopsis of this title

Koom Valley - that was where the trolls ambushed the dwarfs, or the dwarfs ambushed the trolls. It was far away. It was a long time ago. But if he doesn't solve the murder of just one dwarf, Commander Sam Vimes of Ankh-Morpork City Watch is going to see it fought again, right outside his office. With his beloved Watch crumbling around him and war-drums sounding, he must unravel every clue, outwit every assassin and brave any darkness to find the solution. And darkness is following him. Oh...and at six o'clock every day, without fail, with no excuses, he must go home to read 'Where's My Cow?', with all the right farmyard noises, to his little boy. There are some things you have to do.

Reviews of this title

quotes

The Times
'He may write benign comedy but he knows how horribly complicated and exciting the Universe is.'

Starburst
'A series that seems to re-invent itself by natural evolution every time.'

The Guardian
'Like reading Tolkien but with gags -- and good gags too.'
