AMoreIn the four decades since his first book appeared in print, Terry Pratchett has become one of the worlds best-selling and best-loved authors. Here for the first time are his short stories and other short form fiction collected into one volume. A Blink of the Screen charts the course of Pratchetts long writing career: from his schooldays through to his first writing job on the Bucks Free Press,- to the origins of his debut novel, The Carpet People- and on again to the dizzy mastery of the phenomenally successful Discworld series.Here are characters both familiar and yet to be discovered- abandoned worlds and others still expanding- adventure, chickens, death, disco and, actually, some quite disturbing ideas about Christmas,all of it shot through with his inimitable brand of humour.With an introduction by Booker Prize-winning author A.S. Byatt, illustrations by the late Josh Kirby and drawings by the author himself, this is a book to treasure.
