Eric is the Discworld's only demonology hacker. Pity he's not very good at it. All Eric wants is his three wishes granted—to be immortal, to rule the world, and to have the most beautiful woman in the world fall madly in love with him. But he ends up with Rincewind, the most incompetent wizard in the universe, and his extremely intractable and hostile travel accessory, known as the Luggage. With them on his side, Eric's in for a ride through space and time that is bound to make him wish that he'd never been born.

The latest in Pratchett's Discworld series plays a variation on the Faust theme. Eric is a singularly inept sorcerer who conjures up an even more inept wizard, Rincewind, and a sentient (also treacherous, vindictive, and unruly) footlocker named, of course, the Luggage. Not having got anything like what he bargained for, Eric is fated to go through the usual zany ordeals of a Pratchett protagonist, until he wishes he'd never been born. Nor do things really all work out in the end, even if Eric is better off than he expected to be through most of the book. The Discworld books are building a following that is beginning to resemble that of Piers Anthony's Xanth stories, although it can be said that Pratchett is rather more sophisticated than Anthony. In any case, there should be a lot of readers for this one. Fantasy collections, provide accordingly. Roland Green
