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 fifty 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 85 million copies worldwide (but who's counting?), and been translated into thirty-seven languages.

In 2007, Terry Pratchett was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's Disease. He died in 2015.

I was so pleased that there was going to be a film version of this wonderful story and as an ardent fan and disciple of the creator's work,this book was welcome news. It has a great layout and excellent 'stills' from the film. I have throughly enjoyed reading what is virtually the script and can still find myself marvelling at Terry Pratchett's humour and observation. A great present for any Discworld fan.

3 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. K. A. Smurthwaite on 2 Mar. 2007
Format: Hardcover
After having been rather disappointed by the television production itself, I rather hoped that I'd enjoy the illustrated screenplay of Terry Pratchett's Hogfather rather more, but unfortunately it failed to deliver.

There are positives here - it's lavishly presented in a beautifully glossy hardback format, it's pages are filled with set photographs, line drawings and design sketches, and there's the added advantage of not being hampered by lackluster performances, but other than two forewords (one by Pratchett, the other by Jean) and an after word by the producers, it is absolutely devoid of extras. One might expect a few production notes scattered throughout and perhaps some cast interviews, but one would be left unsatisfied.

It's a lovely addition to anyone's collection, but if you are looking for something that will give you a little insight into the production, you'll find this sadly lacking. One can't help feeling they threw this together quickly in order to cash in on the seasonal programme schedule, with little thought as to what it could have been - and it could have been so much more! On the other hand, if you're looking for something to leaf through on a wintry afternoon, or leave on your coffee table, you could do a lot worse.

A mournful winter wonderland 27 July 2006
By L. Stone - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is the sequel to Soul Music. It includes all of our old friends Susan , Ridcully, Some others from the university, Raven, The Death of Rats, Albert, And who could forget Susan's good old grandpa Death. It starts out on Hogswatch eve at The Assassin's Guild where one of the auditors (also featured in Reaperman) come to speak with the head of the guild. After the two are done talking the victim is apparent, a near immortal being named- The Hogfather. The Hogfather comes out on every Hogswatch night to give preasents to children. To deal with this mind boggling task the head comes up with one of the more bloodthirsty assassins named Teatime.

Throughout the book we discover what Susan has been doing since we left her. She has taken a job at an orphanage and she adjusts well to taking care of the kids. But she soon finds out that keeping care of about ten children is nothing when she's faced with monsters limited only by the children's imagination. Meanwhile Death of Rats comes with the news that Susan's grandfather has taken up the the Hogfather's reins.

I thought that the story was fun and reviled parts of human nature that are usually kept in the dark with some of the most thoughtful authors. The only major flaw of the book is that towards the end it starts to become a bit ridiculous even in Disk World standards.

My personal favorite part of this book was all the places it takes you such as The Toothfairy's castle, The Hogfathers Palace, and Deaths Country.

This is a very fun book and I would recommend it as one of the better Disk World series but would advise readers to look into reading Mort and Soulmusic first.

On Gouger! On Tusker! On Rooter and Snouter! 4 Jun. 2011
By ealovitt - Published on
Format: Paperback
Up on the housetops porkers least on Discworld they do. And down the chimney comes good old Hogfather. Or at least, he's supposed to. Who can take his place if the Hogfather is somehow...indisposed? How about Death and his chain-smoking cook, Albert? Yes, Virginia, we really are on Discworld.

"Hogfather" is one of my favorite Discworld novels (and the made-for-TV movie isn't bad, either - Hogfather) because only Pratchett has the audacity to tangle together three of our favorite anthropomorphic personifications (Santa Claus a.k.a. the Hogfather, the Tooth Fairy, and Death) in one intricate story line that is really about belief and what makes the Sun come up in the morning.

Only Death's granddaughter, Susan has the moxie and the common sense to sort out new anthropomorphic personifications (how about a god of hangovers, and a Verruca gnome) that rush into the belief vacuum created by the absence of Hogfather, thwart the evil Auditors, and foil the assassin who has broken into the Tooth Fairy's castle. Meanwhile her Granddad is delivering some very interesting presents to the little kiddies of Discworld.

Yes, it really does follow everything in the video and explains some of the more mysterious points, like why Teatime end up behind Death at the very end when he was in front of him at the climactic scene. No spoiler there, I hope.

Good price, nice format, won't get any better until the 3-d holograms pop-up out of the book when you open the pages.
