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

'Sorry? said Carrot. If it’s just a thing, how can it commit murder? A sword is a thing' he drew his own sword; it made an almost silken sound – 'and of course you can’t blame a sword if someone thrust it at you, sir.'

For members of the City Watch, life consists of troubling times, linked together by periods of torpid inactivity. Now is one such troubling time. People are being murdered, but there’s no trace of anything alive having been at the crime scene. Is there ever a circumstance in which you can blame the weapon not the murderer? Such philosophical questions are not the usual domain of the city’s police, but they’re going to have to start learning fast...

Reviews of this title

quotes

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

'The great Terry Pratchett, whose wit is metaphysical, who creates an energetic and lively secondary world, who has a multifarious genius for strong parody... who deals with death with startling originality. Who writes amazing sentences' - A.S. Byatt, New York Times

'His spectacular inventiveness makes the Discworld series one of the perennial joys of modern fiction' - Mail on Sunday
