Terry's Pratchett's profoundly irreverent novels are consistent number one bestsellers in England, where they have catapulted him into the highest echelons of parody next to Mark Twain, Kurt Vonnegut, Douglas Adams, and Carl Hiaasen.
Meet Granny Weatherwx, the most highly regarded non-leader a coven of non-social witches could ever have. Generally, these loners don't get involved in anything, mush less royal intrigue. but then there are those times they can't help it. As Granny Weatherwzx is about to discover, though, it's a lot harder to stir up trouble in the castle than some theatrical types would have you think. Even when you've got a few unexpected spells up your sleave.

Here is another entry in Pratchett's fabulously successful, entertaining, funny and insightful Discworld series. As the great space turtle, Atuin, carries the disc through the universe, three witches on it become involved with local politics when a mad duke assassinates the good king, whose son escapes. There are ghosts, magic, time stoppage, dwarves and great fun. An interesting device has another reader portraying Death in an echoing, resonant male voice. Overall, narration is done by Celia Imrie, who reads distinctly and slowly, changing accent and pacing to distinguish the characters. Some oddly effective alien music punctuates the sides of the cassettes. D.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
