Sir Terry Pratchett, OBE, was the author of more than 70 books, including the internationally bestselling Discworld series of novels. His books have been adapted for stage and screen, and he was the winner of multiple prizes, including the Carnegie Medal. In January 2009, Pratchett was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in recognition of his services to literature. Sir Terry, who lived in England, died in March 2015 at the age of 66.
"It's a triumphant effort"--The Independent on Sunday "Thirty-seven books in and ... Discworld is still going strong...and doing so with undimmed, triumphant exuberance. "--The Guardian "This account of Unseen University's entry into the world of soccer (or, as they occasionally call it, "foot-the-ball") pushes past the usual conventions of satire to offer equal parts absurdist philosophy and heartwarming romance....A witty addition to the long-running fantasy series"--Kirkus Reviews "At its heart, this is an intelligent, cheeky love letter to football, its fans and the unifying power of sports.--Publishers Weekly "In short, this is as busy and as daft as any other Discworld yarn, which means it is the quintessence of daft. Nobody writes fantasy funnier than Pratchett."--Booklist
