The phenomenal SUNDAY TIMES top ten bestseller - twenty one rediscovered early short stories from the legendary global bestselling author, Sir Terry Pratchett. A truly unmissable, beautifully illustrated collection of unearthed stories from the pen of Sir Terry Pratchett, creator of the phenomenally successful Discworld series. Twenty early short stories by one of the world's best loved authors, each accompanied by exquisite original woodcut illustrations. These are rediscovered tales that Pratchett wrote under a pseudonym for newspapers during the 1970s and 1980s. Whilst none are set in the Discworld, they hint towards the world he would go on to create, containing all of his trademark wit, satirical wisdom and fantastic imagination. Meet Og the inventor, the first caveman to cultivate fire, as he discovers the highs and lows of progress; haunt the Ministry of Nuisances with the defiant evicted ghosts of Pilgarlic Towers; visit Blackbury, a small market town with weird weather and an otherworldly visitor; and go on a dangerous quest through time and space with hero Kron, which begins in the ancient city of Morpork... 'A treasure trove glittering with lost gems' Financial Times 'A new Pratchett! Clear the bestseller decks- this book is heading for the top' Guardian 'This delightful collection is inventive, entertaining and a little quirky, often with a twisty end' Independent
