| Top Ten… Discworld Quotations |

Welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday where this week I’m looking at my favourite Discworld quotations. From the hilarious to the ridiculous to the incredibly profound, Sir Terry Pratchett has always proven to be a master of literary wit – choosing just ten quotations has never been so difficult.

Teaser Tuesdays: The Last Continent


Welcome to Teaser Tuesdays – a weekly feature hosted by The Purple Booker. Expect a new teaser every week!


| Teaser Tuesdays: September 29 |

The Last Continent

Book Twenty-Two of Discworld

by Terry Pratchett

Fantasy | 412 Pages | First Published by Corgi in 1998


“Rincewind tried to slow down, but his method of running was very efficiently based on the idea that stopping was the last thing he’d do. Legs still moving, he ran out over the empty air and plunged into the void.

~ 17% | The Last Continent by Terry Pratchett


| Synopsis |

‘Anything you do in the past changes the future. The tiniest little actions have huge consequences. You might tread on an ant now and it might entirely prevent someone from being born in the future.’

The Discworld‘s most inept wizard has found himself on the Discworld’s last continent, a completely separate creation.

It’s hot. It’s dry . . . very dry. There was this thing once called The Wet, which no one believes in. Practically everything that’s not poisonous is venomous. But it’s the best bloody place in the world, all right?

And in a few days, it will be except . . . Who is this hero striding across the red desert? Champion sheep shearer, horse rider, road warrior, beer drinker, bush ranger, and someone who’ll even eat a Meat Pie Floater when he’s sober? A man in a hat whose luggage follows him on little legs, who’s about to change history by preventing a swagman stealing a jumbuck by a billabong?

Yes . . . all this place has between itself and wind-blown doom is Rincewind, the inept wizard who can’t even spell wizard. Still . . . no worries, eh?

The Last Continent

Book Twenty-Two of Discworld

by Terry Pratchett

Fantasy | 412 Pages | First Published by Corgi in 1998


“First, the steady flop-flop as you walked made you sound like two people to any dangerous creatures you were about to encounter, which, in Rincewind’s recent experience, was any creature at all. Second, although they were impossible to run in they were easy to run out of, so that you were a smoking dot on the burning horizon while the enraged caterpillar or beetle was still looking at your shoes and wondering where the other person was.
