The eleventh Discworld novel.
Terry Pratchett is the acclaimed creator of the global
bestselling Discworld series, the first of which, The Colour of
Magic, was published in 1983. Raising Steam is his fortieth
Discworld novel. His books have been widely adapted for stage and
screen, and he is the winner of multiple prizes, including the
Carnegie Medal, as well as being awarded a knighthood for services
to literature. After falling out with his keyboard he now talks to
his computer. Occasionally, these days, it answers back.
"'If you're an established fan, you'll enjoy this as much as the
others; if you're new to Pratchett, what the hell took you so
long?'" * Time Out *
"'One taste, and you'll scour bookstores for more'" * Daily Mail *
"'Pratchett's humour takes logic past the point of absurdity and round again, but it is his unexpected insights into the human morality that make the Discworld series stand out' " * Times Literary Supplement *
