Description

A beautiful new hardback edition of the classic Discworld novel.

Time is a resource. Everyone knows it has to be managed.

And on Discworld that is the job of the Monks of History, who store it and pump it from the places where it’s wasted (like underwater – how much time does a codfish need?) to places like cities, where there’s never enough time.

But the construction of the world’s first truly accurate clock starts a race against, well, time for Lu Tze and his apprentice Lobsang Ludd. Because it will stop time. And that will only be the start of everyone’s problems.

Publisher Review

‘Other writers are mining the rich seam of comic fantasy that Pratchett first unearthed, but what keeps Pratchett on top is – quite literally – the way he tells them.’ * The Times * ‘He is a moralist, a philosopher and a humanist whose infectious fun completely engulfs you… the Dickens of the twentieth century’ * Mail on Sunday * ‘One of the best and one of the funniest English authors alive’ * Independent *
