Terry Pratchett by Craig Cabell


Original Title: Terry Pratchett

Terry Pratchett is one of the most loved writers in the world. With worldwide sales of over 65 million copies in 37 languages, his novels are eagerly awaited by his legions of fans year after year. His first Discworld novel, The Colour of Magic was released in 1983 and ever since then the series, with its whimsical heroes and fiendish foes, has delighted both young and old alike. In 2007 Pratchett announced that he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. He has courageously faced the disease head-on, equalling the determination of his characters in his vivid and satirical novels. In Terry Pratchett - The Spirit of Fantasy, Craig Cabell examines his extraordinary life, showcased against the backdrop of his irreverent works. With 2011 the 40th anniversary year of his first novel, The Carpet People, this is a fitting time to pay tribute to the author's artistic achievements and celebrate one of Britain's true national treasures. Featuring an in-depth look at the man and his work, as well as on-screen adaptations and a complete UK bibliography and collector's guide, this is essential reading for any fan.

The Unseen University Challenge by David Langford


Original Title: The Unseen University Challenge

University Challenge is one of the world's top quiz shows, enjoyed by millions, both participants and observers. But Discworld fans may feel that not many questions cover the real questions in Life, for example, Who or what could be seen as the inspiration for the near-tragic accident from which nanny Ogg is saved only be a special willow-reinforced hat made for her by Mr Vernissage of Slice? And give a plausible origin for Mrs Rosie Palm, proprietor of the famous House of Negotiable Affection in the Shades. Each Faculty at the Unseen University has provided a set of questions, and answers are included for those who are not sure how the poisonous effects of quicksilver fumes are an occupational hazard of magic-users. The questions have been compiled by Mr David Langford, who knows quite as much - and arguably more - about the Discworld as its Creator, and Terry Pratchett has provided an Introduction.

The Illustrated Eric by Sir Terence David John Pratchett


Original Title: The Illustrated Eric

Eric is the Discworld's only demonology hacker. The trouble is, he's not very good at it. All he wants is the usual three wishes: to be immortal, rule the world and have the most beautiful woman fall madly in love with him. The usual stuff. But what he gets is Rincewind, the Disc's most incompetent wizard, and Rincewind's Luggage (the world's most dangerous travel accessory) into the bargain. Terry Pratchett's hilarious take on the Faust legend stars many of the Discworld's most popular characters in an outrageous adventure that will leave Eric wishing once more - this time, quite fervently - that he'd never been born.

Eric Mundodisco 9 by Terry Pratchett


Original Title: Eric Mundodisco 9

Eric es el aspirante a demonólogo del Mundodisco. Lástima que no se le dé muy bien. Todo lo que pide es que se le concedan... Todo lo que pide es que se le concedan tres deseos: el dominio sobre todos los reinos del mundo, la mujer más bella que haya existido jamás y vivir por toda la eternidad. Vamos, lo de siempre. Solo tendría que chasquear los dedos... Si hubiera invocado al ser adecuado. Los seguidores de Terry Pratchett llevaban años esperando este libro. Llega Eric, una divertida parodia de clásicos como Fausto, la Ilíada y La divina comedia. Una irónica visión de lo que puede ocurrir cuando se intenta gestionar el Infierno (una empresa como otra cualquiera, ¿o no?) de una manera eficiente.

Cousins At One Remove by R. F. M. Byrn


Original Title: Cousins At One Remove

This set of essays is a sequel to Anglo-German Studies published in 1992 by the Leeds Philosophical and Literary Society. Both sets of essays are closely connected with the work of the Leeds University MA programme in Anglo-German Cultural Relations and many of the contributors are, or have been, on the teaching staff of the Leeds University Department of German. The nine essays of the 1992 volume explored aspects of the German reception of English literary ideas, whereas the emphasis in the present volume is on the English reception of German literature.
