TITLE: Johnny and the Bomb
ISBN: 0-552-52968-0

There was a flash of light, the air flickered… and the world changed.  It’s May 21, 1941, thought Johnny.  It’s War.

Johnny Maxwell and his friends have to do something when they find Mrs Tachyon, the local bag lady, semi-conscious in an alley… as long as it’s not the kiss of life.

But there’s more to Mrs Tachyon than a squeaky trolley and a bunch of dubious black bags.  Somehow she holds the key to different times, different eras - including the Blackbury Blitz in 1941.  Suddenly now isn’t the safe place Johnny once thought it was as he finds himself bound up more and more with them…



AUTHOR: Terry Pratchett
TITLE: I Shall Wear Midnight

"I’m feared for the big wee hag…"

Tiffany Aching is a witch.  And she thinks she’s doing a good job for the people of the Chalk.  Even if the job does seem to involve a lot of bandaging legs and cutting old ladies’ toenails and not much, well, magic.

Or sleep.

But somewhere - some time - there’s a tangled ball of evil and spite, of hatred and malice, that has woken up.  And it’s waking up all the old stories too - stories about evil old witches.

Suddenly Tiffany isn’t so sure she’s doing the right thing.  And her tiny allies - the fightin’ Nac Mac Feegles - are only making things more difficult.

Things are supposed to look better after a good night’s sleep.

But they won’t.

They’re about to get a lot, lot worse.

And a witch has to deal with what is in front of her …

TITLE: Johnny and the Dead
ISBN: 0-552-52740-8

Sell the cemetery?
Over their dead bodies…

Not many people can see the dead (not many would want to).  Twelve-year-old Johnny Maxwell can.  And he’s got bad news for them: the council want to sell the cemetery as a building site.  But the dead have learned a thing or two from Johnny.  They’re not going to take it lying down…especially since it’s Halloween tomorrow.

Besides, they’re beginning to find that life is a lot more fun than it was when they were… well… alive.  Particularly if they break a few rules…

TITLE: Maskerade
ISBN: 0-552-14236-0

THE SHOW MUST GO ON, AS MURDER, MUSIC AND MAYHEM RUN RIOT IN THE NIGHT …

The Opera House, Ankh-Morpork…a huge, rambling building, where innocent young sopranos are lured to their destiny by a strangely-familiar evil mastermind in a hideously-deformed evening dress…

At least, he homes so.  But Granny Weatherwax, Discworld’s most famous witch, is in the audience.  And she doesn’t hold with that sort of thing.

So there’s going to be trouble (but nevertheless a good evening’s entertainment with murders you can really hum…)

IT’S THE NIGHT BEFORE HOGSWATCH, AND IT’S TOO QUIET.

Where is the big jolly fat man?  Why is Death creeping down chimneys and trying to say Ho Ho Ho?  The darkest night of the year is getting a lot darker…

Susan the gothic governess has got to sort it out by morning, otherwise there won’t be a morning.
Ever again…

The 20th Discworld novel is a festive feast of darkness and Death (but with jolly robins and tinsel too).

As they say:  You’d better watch out…

TITLE: Men at Arms
ISBN: 0-552-14028-7

'Be a MAN in the City Watch!  The City Watch needs MEN!'

But what it’s got includes Corporal Carrot (technically a dwarf), Lance-constable Cuddy (really a dwarf), Lance-constable Detritus (a troll), Lance-constable Angua (a woman…most of the time) and Corporal Nobbs (disqualified from the human race for shoving).

And they need all the help they can get.  Because they’ve only got twenty-four hours to clean up the town and this is Ankh-Morpork we’re talking about…

OTHER CHILDREN GET GIVEN XYLOPHONES.  SUSAN JUST HAD TO ASK HER GRANDFATHER TO TAKE HIS VEST OFF.

Yes.  There’s a Death in the family.

It’s hard to grow up normally when Grandfather rides a white horse and wields a scythe - especially when you have to take over the family business, and everyone mistakes you for the Tooth Fairy.

And especially when you have to face the new and addictive music that has entered Discworld.

It’s lawless.  It changes people.

It’s called Music With Rocks In.

It’s got a beat and you can dance to it, but…

It’s alive.

And it won’t fade away.

MIGHT BATTLES!  REVOLUTION!  DEATH!  WAR! (AND HIS SONS TERROR AND PANIC, AND DAUGHTER CLANCY)

The oldest and most inscrutable empire on the Discworld is in turmoil, brought about by the revolutionary treatise What I did on My Holidays.  Workers are uniting, with nothing to lose but their water buffaloes.  War (and Clancy) are spreading throughout the ancient cities.

And all that stands in the way of terrible doom for everyone is:

Rincewind the Wizard, who can’t even spell the word ‘wizard’…

Cohen the barbarian hero, five foot tall in his surgical sandals, who has had a lifetime’s experience of not dying…

…and a very special butterfly.

TITLE: The Lost Continent
ISBN: 0-552-14614-5

IT’S THE DISCWORLD’S LAST CONTINENT AND IT’S GOING TO DIE IN A FEW DAYS, EXCEPT…

Who is this hero striding across the red desert?  Sheep shearer, beer drinker, bush ranger, and someone who’ll even eat a Meat Pie Floater when he’s sober.

A man in a hat whose luggage follows him on little legs.  Yes, it’s Rincewind, the inept wizard who can’t even spell wizard.  He’s the only hero left.

Still…no worries, eh?
