Terry Pratchett

Discworld goes to war...

A weathercock has risen from the sea of Discworld. Suddenly you can tell which way the wind is blowing. A new land has surfaced, and so have old feuds. And as two armies march, Commander Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch has got just a few hours to deal with a crime so big that there's no law against it. It's called "war".

He's facing unpleasant foes who are out to get him... and that's just the people on his side. The enemy might be worse. And his pocket Dis-organiser says he's got "Die" under "Things To Do Today". But he'd better not because the world's cleverest inventor and its most devious politician are on their way to the battlefield with a little package that's guaranteed to stop a battle...

Discworld goes to war, with armies of sardines, warriors, fishermen, squid, and at least one very camp follower.

Jingo is the twenty-first in Terry Pratchett's phenomenally successful Discworld series.

What every Pratchett fan will want for Hogswatch Night!

Although Time may be somewhat erratic on a flat planet that rides through space on the back of four elephants standing on a giant turtle, there is still a place for the committed diarist. With a fully functional calendar for Earthbound enthusiasts, including notable dates, holidays and a 1998 year planner, the week-to-view Diary will also feature an exclusive 8th "Discworld Day"¹ in each week.

The front section will comprise a brief history of the Discworld, a guide to some of its characters, places of interest and significant events, and a map of Ankh-Morpork.

Liberally peppered with Paul Kidby illustrations and delightful Pratchett quotations, the Discworld Diary must surely be THE perfect Christmas gift for fans of all ages.

Published to coincide with the twenty-first Discworld novel, Jingo.
