The second Discworld novel.
 
When the very fabric of time and space are about to be put through the wringer -- in this instance by the imminent arrival of a very large and determinedly oncoming meteorite -- circumstances require a very particular type of hero. Sadly what the situation does not need is a singularly inept wizard, still recovering from the trauma of falling off the edge of the world. Equally it does not need one well-meaning tourist and his luggage which has a mind of its own. Which is a shame because that's all there is.

From the Publisher:

The Funniest And Most Unorthodox Fantasy In This Or Any Other Galaxy

A sequel to The Colour of Magic

"Unalloyed delight" - Guardian

"Marvellous sequel to The Colour of Magic pure fantastic delight" - Time Out

"Dropping off the edge of their world does not seem to have done Rincewind, Twoflower or Luggage any harm ... Excellent" - SFF Books

"Good fun is had by all in one of the most hilarious romps in ages" - Erg

From the Back Cover:

Terry Pratchett's profoundly irreverent novels, consistent number one bestsellers in England, have garnered him a revered position in the halls of parody along with Mark Twain, Kurt Vonnegut, Douglas Adams, and Carl Hiaasen.

In The Light Fantastic only one individual can save the world from a disastrous collision. Unfortunately, the hero happens to be the singularly inept wizard Rincewind, who was last seen falling off the edge of the world....
