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

Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch had it all.

But now he's back in his own rough, tough past without even the clothes he was standing up in when the lightning struck...

Living in the past is hard. Dying in the past is incredibly easy. But he must survive, because he has a job to do. He must track down a murderer, teach his younger self how to be a good copper and change the outcome of a bloody rebellion.

There's a problem: if he wins, he's got no wife, no child, no future...

A Discworld Tale of One City, with a full chorus of street urchins, ladies of negotiable affection, rebels, secret policemen and other children of the revolution.

Truth! Justice! Freedom! And a Hard-boiled Egg!

Reviews of this title

quotes

'The best Discworld book in the whole world ever. Until next time'
SFX

'He is a satirist of enormous talent... His jokes slide under your skin as swiftly as a hypodermic syringe, leaving you giggling helplessly'
The Times

'Terry Pratchett is one of the great inventors of secondary - or imaginative or alternative - worlds. He has the real energy of the primary storyteller'
A.S. Byatt, The Times
