Published in Britain at the end of 1986, this and its ""prequel"" (The Colour of Magic, above) were among the top five best-selling books on the 1986 Andromeda list. Moreover, Pratchett was Andromeda's best-selling author for the same year. It was also chosen as a lead title for Doubleday's Science Fiction Book Club. ""Pratchett excels in both slapstick comedy and tongue-in-cheek wit."" - Library Journal. ""That rare event, a comedy sequel that is twistier, plottier, and funnier than its predecessor...The most hilarious fantasy since come to think of it, since Pratchett's previous outing."" - Kirkus Reviews. ""If you want a couple of hours of unadulterated fun, this is the book for you."" - Science Fiction Chronicle.

It's just one of those days when nothing seemsto go right—a most inopportune time for thefirst tourist ever to set foot (and carnivorous Luggage) on the Discworld to be extending his already eventful vacation. (Not that he currently has much choice in the matter.) But with a monstrous red star on a direct collision course, the future for the residents of this flat planet carried by four elephants riding on the shell of a giant turtle swimming through space appears uncertain at best. Fortunately, there is one individual who can save Discworld from total destruction. Unfortunately, that hero happens to be the singularly inept wizard Rincewind, who was last seen falling off the edge of the world.
