Terry Pratchett – Mrs Bradshaw’s Handbook

Authorised by Mr Lipwig of the Ankh-Morpork and Sto Plains Hygienic Railway himself, Mrs Georgina Bradshaw’s invaluable guide to the destinations and diversions of the railway deserves a place in the luggage of any traveller, or indeed armchair traveller, upon the Disc.

  • From the twine walk of Great Slack to the souks of Zemphis: edifying sights along the route
  • Ticketing, nostrums and transporting your swamp dragon: essential hints on the practicalities of travel
  • Elegant resorts and quaint inns: respectable and sanitary lodgings for all species and heights.

From worm-herding to Fustic Cake: diverting trivia on the crafts, foods and brassica traditions of the many industrious people for whom the railway is now a vital link to the Century of the Anchovy

Replete with useful titbits, Mrs Bradshaw’s Handbook offers a view of the Sto Plains like no other. Beautifully narrated by Penelope Keith with Michael Fenton Stevens.

This is the Discworld’s last continent, a completely separate creation.

It’s hot. It’s dry…very dry. There was this thing once called The Wet, which no one believes in. Practically everything that’s not poisonous is venomous. But it’s the best bloody place in the world, all right?

Champion sheep shearer, horse rider, road warrior, beer drinker, bush ranger, and someone who’ll even eat a Meat Pie Floater when he’s sober? A man in a hat whose luggage follows him on little legs, who’s about to change history by preventing a swagman stealing a jumbuck by a billabong?

Yes…all this place has between itself and wind-blown doom is Rincewind, the inept wizard who can’t even spell wizard. Still…no worries, eh?

Also, Terry Pratchett would like it to be known that The Last Continent is not a book about Australia. It’s just vaguely Australian.

David Eddings – The Redemption of Althalus

Mythmakers and world builders of the first order, the Eddingses spin tales that make imaginations soar. Listeners have thrilled to The Belgariad and The Malloreon, magic-filled masterworks chronicling the timeless conflict between good and evil. But with those sagas brought to their triumphant conclusions, fans were left hungry for more. Now at last the wait is over. With The Redemption of Althalus, the Eddingses have created their first-ever stand-alone epic fantasy….
