Product Description

Amazon Review

In Feet of Clay, Terry Pratchett continues the fantasy adventures on Discworld--where anything goes. Anything but murder, that is. Commander Vimes of the Watch must investigate a puzzling series of deaths, with help from various trolls and dwarfs. Pratchett's humour and excellent writing skills draw the reader effortlessly into his zany world. Feet of Clay is 19th in the series. --Blaise Selby

Review

"Like reading Tolkien but with gags - and good gags too" (Guardian)

"The great Terry Pratchett, whose wit is metaphysical, who creates an energetic and lively secondary world, who has a multifarious genius for strong parody ... who deals with death with startling originality. Who writes amazing sentences" (A.S. Byatt New York Times)

"His spectacular inventiveness makes the Discworld series one of the perennial joys of modern fiction" (Mail on Sunday)

"The work of a prolific humorist at his best" (Observer)

"Like most true originals, Pratchett defies categorisation...Deliciously and amiably dotty...Driven by Swiftian logic and equally intellectually inventive" (The Times)

Book Description

A beautiful gift-edition hardback of the classic Discworld novel.

Product Description

'Sorry?' said Carrot. If it's just a thing, how can it commit murder? A sword is a thing' - he drew his own sword; it made an almost silken sound - 'and of course you can't blame a sword if someone thrust it at you, sir.'



For Commander Vimes, Head of Ankh-Morpork City Watch, life consists of troubling times, linked together by…well, more troubling times. Right now, it’s the latter. There’s a werewolf with pre-lunar tension in the city, and a dwarf with attitude and a golem who’s begun to think for itself, but that’s just ordinary trouble. The real problem is more puzzling - people are being murdered, but there's no trace of anything alive having been at the crime scene. So Vimes not only has to find out whodunit, but howdunit too. He's not even sure what they dun. But soon as he knows what the questions are, he's going to want some answers.

From the Back Cover

IN ANKH-MORPORK, THERE'S A WEREWOLF WITH PRE-LUNAR TENSION IN ANKH-MORPORK. AND A DWARF WITH ATTITUDE...

But for Commander Vimes, Head of Ankh-Morpork City Watch, that's only the start. There's treason in the air. A crime has happened and he's not only got to find out whodunit, but howdunit too. He's not even sure what they dun...

About the Author

Sir Terry Pratchett is a publishing phenomenon. Among his many prizes and citations are the WORLD FANTASY LIFE ACHIEVEMENT AWARD, the CARNEGIE MEDAL, the BSFA AWARD, eight honorary doctorates and, of course, a knighthood. In 2012, he won a BAFTA for his documentary on the subject of assisted suicide, 'Terry Pratchett: Choosing to Die'. He is the author of 50 bestselling books but is best known for the globally renowned Discworld series. The first Discworld novel, THE COLOUR OF MAGIC, was published in 1983, and the series is still going strong almost three decades later. Four Discworld novels - HOGFATHER, GOING POSTAL, THE COLOUR OF MAGIC and THE LIGHT FANTASTIC - have been adapted for television, with more to follow. His books have sold approximately 75 million copies worldwide (but who's counting?), and been translated into 37 languages. Terry Pratchett lives near Salisbury in Wiltshire.
