Thief Of Time

(Discworld Novel 26)




Time is of the essence in Terry Pratchett's twenty-sixth Discworld novel.

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

And on the Discworld that is the job of the Monks of History, who store it and pump it from the places where it's wasted (like the 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.

THIEF OF TIME comes complete with a full supporting cast of heroes, villains, yetis, martial artists and Ronnie, the fifth Horseman of the Apocalypse (who left before they became famous).

Praise for Thief Of Time

“Terry Pratchett is one of the great inventors of secondary - or imaginative or alternative - worlds. He is not derivative. He is too strong . . . He has the real energy of the primary storyteller.”

The Times

“In a better world he would be acclaimed as a great writer rather than a merely successful one . . . This is the best Pratchett I've read . . . Ought to be a strong contender for The Booker Prize.”

Sunday Telegraph

“Reads with all the polished fluency and sure-footed pacing that have become Pratchett's hallmarks over the years.”
