Trouble began, and not for the first time, with an apple. There was a bag of them on Granny Weatherwaxs bleached and spotless table. Red and round, shiny and fruity, if theyd known the future they should have ticked like bombs. Keep the lot, old Hopcroft said I could have as many as I wanted, said Nanny Ogg. She gave her sister witch a sidelong glance. Tasty, a bit wrinkled, but a damn good keeper. He named an apple after you said Granny. Each word was an acid drop on the air. Cos of my rosy ...

Acknowledgements This book is dedicated to Rob Wilkins, who typed most of it and had the good sense to laugh occasionally. And to Colin Smythe for his encouragement. The chant of the goddess Pedestriana is a parody of the wonderful poem Brahma by Ralph Waldo Emerson, but of course you knew that anyway. обратно It was midnight in Ankh-Morporks Royal Art Museum1. It occurred to new employee Rudolph Scattering about once every minute that on the whole it might have been a good idea to tell the ...

Terry Pratchett Nation HOW IMO MADE THE WORLD, IN THE TIME WHEN THINGS WERE OTHERWISE AND THE MOON WAS DIFFERENT Imo set out one day to catch some fish, but there was no sea. There was nothing but Imo. So he spat in his hands and rubbed them together and made a ball of sea. After that he made some fish, but they were stupid and lazy. So he took the souls of some dolphins, who at least had learned to speak, and he mixed them with clay and rubbed them in his hands and changed their shape and they ...

Terry Pratchett Making Money Authors Note Hemlines as a measure of national crisis p.64: The author will be forever grateful to the renowned military historian and strategist Sir Basil Liddell Hart for imparting this interesting observation to him in 1968. It may explain why the mini-skirt has, since the sixties, never really gone out of style. Students of the history of computing will recognize in the Glooper a distant echo of the Phillips Economic Computer, built in 1949 by ...

Terry Pratchett Johnny and the Bomb I would like to thank the Meteorological Office, the Royal Mint and my old friend Bernard Pearson - who, if he doesnt know something, always knows a man who does - for their help in the research for this book. When historical details are wrong, its my fault for not listening.

Terry Pratchett, Jack Cohen, Ian Stewart Darwins Watch CONCERNING ROUNDWORLD DISCWORLD IS REAL. Its the way worlds should work. Admittedly, it is flat and goes through space on the backs of four elephants which stand on the shell of a giant turtle, but consider the alternatives. Consider, for example, a globular world, a mere crust upon an inferno of molten rock and iron. An accidental world, made of the wreckage of old stars, the home of life which, nevertheless, in a most unhomely fashion, is ...

I mean, if people were music, Wayne would be like one of those scratchy old numbers, you know, re-recorded about a hundred times from the original phonograph cylinder or whatever, with some old guy with a name like Deaf Orange Robinson standing knee-deep in the Mississippi and moaning through his nose.

Terry Pratchett Theater of Cruelty It was a fine summer morning, the kind to make a man happy to be alive. And probably the man would have been happier to be alive. He was, in fact, dead. It would be hard to be deader without special training. Well, now, said Sergeant Colon Ankh-Morpork City Guard, Night Watch, consulting his notebook, so far we have cause of death as a being beaten with at least one blunt instrument b being strangled with a string of sausages and c being savaged by at least two ...

It was a summer shower but didnt appear to know it, and it was pouring rain as fast as a winter storm. Miss Perspicacia Tick sat in what little shelter a raggedy hedge could give her and explored the universe. She didnt notice the rain. Witches dried out quickly. The exploring of the universe was being done with a couple of twigs tied together with string, a stone with a hole in it, an egg, one of ...

Terry Pratchett The Carpet People To Lyn, for then and now. AUTHORS NOTE This book had two authors, and they were both the same person. The Carpet People was published in 1971. It had a lot of things wrong with it, mostly to do with being written by someone who was seventeen at the time. And it sold a bit, and eventually it sold out. And that was it. And then about seven years ago the Discworld books began to sell, and people would buy them and say, Here, whats this book The Carpet People by The ...

Terry Pratchett The Bromeliad 1 - Truckers Concerning Nomes and Time Nomes are small. On the whole, small creatures dont live for a long time. But perhaps they do live fast. Let me explain. One of the shortest-lived creatures on the planet Earth is the adult common mayfly. It lasts for one day. The longest-living things are bristlecone pine trees, at 4,700 years and still counting. This may seem tough on mayflies. But the important thing is not how long your life is, but how long it seems. To a ...
