La segunda entrega de Mundodisco, la más divertida saga fantástica jamás escrita. Un nuevo día, sereno y apacible, empieza en el Mundodisco. Como es habitual, la gran tortuga navega por el éter entregada a reflexiones inescrutables, sosteniendo en su caparazón a los cuatro elefantes sobre los que descansa el mundo. Sin embargo, se avecina una inexorable colisión con una malévola estrella roja, y solo una persona puede poner remedio al inminente desastre: Rincewind, el inepto y cobarde hechicero. Por desgracia, Rincewind fue visto por última vez cuando caía por el borde del mundo... Esta serie de novelas está considerada la más divertida y heterodoxa saga fantástica jamás escrita. Como ha señalado la crítica, «las novelas de Terry Pratchett deberían ser lectura obligada para aquellos que se toman la vida demasiado en serio».

Terry Pratchett's profoundly irreverent, bestselling novels have garnered him a revered position in the halls of parody next to the likes of Mark Twain, Kurt Vonnegut, Douglas Adams, and Carl Hiaasen. In The Light Fantastic, only one individual can save the world from a disastrous collision. Unfortunately, the hero happens to be the singularly inept wizard Rincewind, who was last seen falling off the edge of the world.

This is where it all started! The first classic Phryne Fisher mystery, featuring our delectable heroine, cocaine, communism and adventure. Phryne leaves the tedium of English high society for Melbourne, Australia, and never looks back. The London season is in full fling at the end of the 1920s, but the Honorable Phryne Fisher—she of the green-gray eyes, diamant garters and outfits that should not be sprung suddenly on those of nervous dispositions—is rapidly tiring of the tedium of arranging flowers, making polite conversations with retired colonels, and dancing with weak-chinned men. Instead, Phryne decides it might be rather amusing to try her hand at being a lady detective in Melbourne, Australia. Almost immediately from the time she books into the Windsor Hotel, Phryne is embroiled in mystery: poisoned wives, cocaine smuggling rings, corrupt cops and communism—not to mention erotic encounters with the beautiful Russian dancer, Sasha de Lisse—until her adventure reaches its steamy end in the Turkish baths of Little Lonsdale Street.

Eric calls up a demon to grant him three wishes - but what he gets is the Discworld's most incompetent wizard... 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.

'Look after the dead', said the priests, 'and the dead will look after you.' Wise words in all probability, but a tall order when, like Teppic, you have just become the pharaoh of a small and penniless country rather earlier than expected, and your treasury is unlikely to stretch to the building of a monumental pyramid to honour your dead father. Heâe(tm)d had the best education money could buy of course, but unfortunately the syllabus at the Assassin's Guild in Ankh-Morpork did not cover running a kingdom and basic financial acumen...

Primer volumen de la serie Mundodisco de Terry Pratchett. En un mundo plano sostenido por cuatro elefantes impasibles -que se apoyan en la espalda de una tortuga gigante- habitan los estrafalarios personajes de esta novela: un hechicero avaro y torpe, un turista ingenuo cuyo fiero equipaje le sigue a todas partes sostenido por cientos de patitas, dragones que solo existen si se cree en ellos, gremios de ladrones y asesinos, espadas mágicas, la Muerte y, por supuesto, un extenso catálogo de magos y demonios... En esta serie de novelas se dan cita todos los temas y situaciones del género fantástico, vistos a través del personalísimo y corrosivo sentido de la comicidad de un autor inglés que se ha convertido en uno de los escritores de humor de mayor éxito y fama en el mundo. La crítica ha dicho... «Un consejo. Id a vuestra librería de confianza, pedid un libro de Terry Pratchett y abríos una nueva puerta que osllevará a un mundo de carcajadas, de ironía, de frases lapidarias, de intrigas y de amores. ¡Bienvenidos al Mundodisco!» El País «Brillante, ingenioso e hilarante.» Washington Post

DOM SALABOS HAD A LOT OF ADVANTAGES As heir to a huge fortune, he had an excellent robot servant (with Man-Friday subcircuitry), a planet (the First Syrian Bank) as godfather, a security chief who even ran checks on himself, and on Dom's home world even death was not always fatal. Why, then, in an age when prediction was a science, was his future in doubt?

El imperio más antiguo e inescrutable del Mundodisco anda algo revuelto... El imperio más antiguo e inescrutable del Mundodisco anda algo revuelto. Con educación, eso sí. Y la culpa de todo la tienen, por este orden: un panfleto revolucionario titulado Lo que hice en mis vacaciones..., el mago Rincewind y su fiel Equipaje..., una horda de bárbaros capitaneados por un viejo héroe llamado Gengis Cohen... y una mariposa muy especial. ¿Quizá por eso la peor maldición que se puede echar en el refinadísimo Imperio Ágata es «Ojalá vivas en tiempos interesantes»? Esta es la historia de una revolución largamente esperada y con giros insospechados. Al fin y al cabo transcurre en el Mundodisco del genial Terry Pratchett. Reseña: «Más que un autor, Terry Pratchett es un fenómeno imparable... Sus novelas son como una droga, y es un placer engancharse a su mezcla única de juegos de palabras, lógica surrealista y finas dotesde observación.» The Journal

Brian Duffy, aging soldier of fortune, had been hired in Venice by a strange old man who called himself Aurelianus Ambrosius. He was supposed to go to Vienna and act as bouncer at an inn where the fabulous Herzwesten beer was brewed. That was clear enough. But why was he guided and guarded on the trip by creatures from the ancient legends? Why should he be attacked by ifrits and saved by mythical dwarfs? What was so important about the Herzwesten beer to the Fisher King -- whoever he was? Why was Duffy plagued by visions of a sword and an arm rising from a lake? And what had a bunch of drunken, ancient Vikings to do with it all? Then there was no time for speculation as Vienna was besieged by the Turkish armies of Suleiman. Duffy found himself drawn into a war of desperation and magic. It was up to him to preserve the West until the drawing of the Dark. From the Paperback edition.
