From the Back Cover
WILLIAM JUST WANTS TO GET AT THE TRUTH. UNFORTUNATELY, EVERYONE ELSE WANTS TO GET AT WILLIAM. AND IT'S ONLY THE THIRD EDITION...
William de Worde is the accidental editor of the Discworld's first newspaper. Now he must cope with the traditional perils of a journalist's life - people who want him dead, a recovering vampire with a suicidal fascination for flash photography, some more people who want him dead in a different way and, worst of all, the man who keeps begging him to publish pictures of his humorously shaped potatoes.
