9780861402038: The Light Fantastic

Published in Britain at the end of 1986, this and its ""prequel"" (The Colour of Magic, above) were among the top five best-selling books on the 1986 Andromeda list. Moreover, Pratchett was Andromeda's best-selling author for the same year. It was also chosen as a lead title for Doubleday's Science Fiction Book Club. ""Pratchett excels in both slapstick comedy and tongue-in-cheek wit."" - Library Journal. ""That rare event, a comedy sequel that is twistier, plottier, and funnier than its predecessor...The most hilarious fantasy since come to think of it, since Pratchett's previous outing."" - Kirkus Reviews. ""If you want a couple of hours of unadulterated fun, this is the book for you."" - Science Fiction Chronicle.

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....
