A beautiful gift edition of the classic Discworld novel.

Eric is the Discworld's only demonology hacker. The trouble is, he's not very good at it. All he wants is the usual three wishes: to be immortal, rule the world and have the most beautiful woman fall madly in love with him. The usual stuff.

But what he gets is Rincewind, the Disc's most incompetent wizard, and Rincewind's Luggage (the world's most dangerous travel accessory) into the bargain.

Terry Pratchett's hilarious take on the Faust legend stars many of the Discworld's most popular characters in an outrageous adventure that will leave Eric wishing once more - this time, quite fervently, that he'd never been born.

Readers adore Eric:

'Packed with references and laugh-out-loud scenes and I enjoyed myself immensely' Goodreads reviewer,

'Rincewind and The Luggage are two of my favourite characters and Death makes an appearance too! He is just brilliant, one of Pratchett's many masterpieces of imagination. The book is laugh aloud funny as all his books are' Goodreads reviewer,

'Fresh and funny and fast paced and so damn entertaining. It reminded me exactly why I fell in love with Pratchett's Discworld in the first place' Goodreads reviewer,

'Rincewind takes the reader (and, this time, Eric and a parrot) on a hilarious, frenetic and fast-paced journey; for running away is his specialty. . . True British comedy and wit, rollicking fun' Goodreads reviewer,

'This is one long sequence of gags that manages to have several shrewd observations about humanity while still being funny' Goodreads reviewer,

“Another excellent Rincewind novel.”

The book itself is quite short at only 155 pages but it was still an excellent read.

This book is the 9th in the Discworld series, and the 5th story about Rincewind. It follows the events of Sourcery, where Rincewind... More

“All hail the Luggage”

I believe this is the shortest book in the Discworld series.
Faust reimagined with Rincewind.
Short and fun.
And the luggage does a lot of squishing and rampaging.

“Not his best”

I couldn’t get in it I tried but this isn’t book for me!
