Reviews

"A book meant to be cherished." --The New York Times Book Review
"Some writers simply possess the Gift. No matter what they bring out. . . . That's certainly the case with Terry Pratchett." --The Washington Post Book World
"In the history of comic fantasy, Pratchett has no equals for invention or for range." --The Wall Street Journal

"Clever . . . insightful. . . . [Pratchett's] wry wit is as good as gold." --The Boston Globe
"Pratchett is one of the great comic writers and storytellers of our time." --The Guardian
"One of the giants in the world of fantasy literature." --New York Daily News

"You can't call what Pratchett does satire--it's far too good-natured for that--but he has a satirist's instinct for the absurd and a cartoonist's eye for the telling detail." --The Daily Telegraph (London)
"A short story collection covering the entire career of one of our most prolific, and beloved, fantasy writers. . . . One of the main draws of [A Blink of the Screen] for serious fans, or aspiring writers, will be the chance to trace the evolution of Pratchett's craft--but there's plenty here for readers who have never heard of him to enjoy." --Kirkus Reviews
"A little absurdism, a little wordplay, a lot of inventive fantasy, a lot of heart, and a deep-seated fascination with the way technologies change societies. . . . Pratchett can easily fill an entire bookcase by himself. . . . But he has kept the piquant sense of someone playing with language, with new worlds, and with the familiar old tropes that he enjoys upending." --NPR
"What Pratchett does is not just great, but unparalleled. In five hundred years, it won't be the Nobel laureates who are being studied. It's going to be this guy." --Brandon Sanderson, Tor.com
"One of the greatest comic novelists of all time, in his way the equal of Wodehouse and Waugh." --GQ (UK)
"The master of humorous fantasy . . . [Pratchett] should be recognized as one of the more significant contemporary English-language satirists." --Publishers Weekly
