A Stroke of the Pen: The Lost Stories (Hardback)Terry Pratchett (author)
A final collection of mesmeric short stories from the much-missed author of the award-winning Discworld series, A Stroke of the Pen is filled with Pratchett's trademark invention, fantastical goings-on and irresistible humour.
A truly unmissable set of unearthed stories from the pen of Sir Terry Pratchett: award-winning and bestselling author, and creator of the phenomenally successful Discworld series.
An exclusive collection of twenty early short stories by one of the world's best loved authors, these are rediscovered tales that Pratchett wrote under a pseudonym for newspapers during the 1970s and 1980s.
Whilst none of the stories are set in the Discworld, they hint towards the world he would go on to create in his award-winning and globally bestselling series, containing all of his trademark wit, satirical wisdom and fantastic imagination. These are tales which entertain, enlighten and, most importantly, make you laugh.
Meet Og the inventor, the first caveman to cultivate fire, as he discovers the highs and lows of progress; haunt the Council with the defiant evicted ghosts of Pilgarlic Towers; visit Blackbury, a small market town with weird weather and an otherworldly visitor; and travel millions of years back in time to The Old Red Sandstone Lion pub.
The final ever 'new' writing to be published from the late, great Sir Terry Pratchett, A Stroke of the Pen is a must-have collection of fantastic short stories for fans, old and new.
