The cover for Terry Pratchett's final Discworld novel, The Shepherd's Crown, has been revealed! Exact plot details are still scarce, all we know so far is that it follows the young witch, Tiffany Aching and that bees are somehow involved. Surely there'll be a callback to Granny Weatherwax's borrowing a swarm's hive mind in Lords and Ladies? We don't know yet and, while we could happily spend all day speculating and talking about the Discworld, we've got an exclusive Waterstones edition to announce.
The Waterstones edition, as well having a gorgeous cloth slipcase, includes an extra article titled 'Doing as you Would Bee Done By', a witty insight into Terry's own beekeeping experiences. There are only 5,000 copies available, each individually stamped and numbered, so pre-order now before they're all gone!
Both editions will be available on 27th August and you can already pre-order the regular edition at Half Price. It's going to be a long wait.
