La octava entrega de la serie Mundodisco, la saga de fantasía más hilarante de todos los tiempos. La Guardia Nocturna de la ciudad de Ank-Morkpok no tiene mucho trabajo. De los crímenes se ocupan los Gremios de Ladrones y de Asesinos, sin pasarse de una cuota fija al mes, por supuesto. Así, esta guardia destartalada y sin sentido de existencia consta de tan solo tres hombres: el capitán Vimes, el sargento Colon y el cabo Nobbs. Cuando un nuevo recluta, el idealista enano de casi dos metros llamado Zanahoria Fundidordehierroson, se integra en su equipo y no tiene mejor idea que arrestar a ladrones y asesinos haciendo cumplir la Ley, los tres veteranos guardias verán cómo su rutina se rompe. Y por si fuera poco, un dragón, criatura que se creía que ya no existía, ha aparecido en la ciudad, aunque a nadie parece interesarle mucho.

The Long War by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter follows the adventures and travails of heroes Joshua Valiente and Lobsang in an exciting continuation of the extraordinary science fiction journey begun in their New York Times bestseller The Long Earth. A generation after the events of The Long Earth, humankind has spread across the new worlds opened up by “stepping.” A new “America”—Valhalla—is emerging more than a million steps from Datum—our Earth. Thanks to a bountiful environment, the Valhallan society mirrors the core values and behaviors of colonial America. And Valhalla is growing restless under the controlling long arm of the Datum government. Soon Joshua, now a married man, is summoned by Lobsang to deal with a building crisis that threatens to plunge the Long Earth into a war unlike any humankind has waged before.

It isn't much of an island that rises up one moonless night from the depths of the Circle Sea—just a few square miles of silt and some old ruins. Unfortunately, the historically disputed lump of land called Leshp is once again floating directly between Ankh-Morpork and the city of Al-Khali on the coast of Klatch—which is spark enough to ignite that glorious international pastime called "war." Pressed into patriotic service, Commander Sam Vimes thinks he should be leading his loyal watchmen, female watchdwarf, and lady werewolf into battle against local malefactors rather than against uncomfortably well-armed strangers in the Klatchian desert. But war is, after all, simply the greatest of all crimes—and it's Sir Samuel's sworn duty to seek out criminal masterminds wherever they may be hiding and lock them away before they can do any real damage . . . even the ones on his side.

The wizards of Unseen University are again called upon to defend their creation, Roundworld, this time in a courtroom—where its very existence hangs in the balance. The Omnians fervently believe that the world is round, not flat, and view the discovery of Roundworld as a vindication of their faith. To leave this artifact in the hands of the wizards would be unacceptable. Not only do the academics hold that Discworld is flat, but by creating the Roundworld universe, they have elevated themselves to the level of gods. Ankh-Morpork’s venerable tyrant Lord Vetinari agrees to a tribunal, where the wizards Ridcully, Rincewind, and Ponder Stibbons can present their case—with key assistance from a Roundworld librarian named Marjorie Daw. JUDGMENT DAY weaves together explorations of such Earthly topics as big science, creation, subatomic particles, the existence of dark matter, and the psychology of belief--a treat for Discworld fans and readers of popular science alike. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Ha llegado la Navidad al Mundodisco... aunque allí tiene otro nombre y guarda muchas sorpresas. Es la Vigilia de los Puercos, la fiesta invernal que marca el año nuevo en el Mundodisco. Los niños duermen y esperan que Papá Puerco baje por la chimenea y les deje sus regalos. Sin embargo, algo extraño está ocurriendo. El visitante no es un anciano tripudo de barba blanca. Recuerda más bien a un esqueleto. No se aclara mucho con el almohadón que lleva atado a la cintura debajo del traje rojo. Exclama «¡Jo, jo, jo jo!» en tono fúnebre y parece más acostumbrado a usar la guadaña que a repartir caramelos dentro de los calcetines. Pero alguien tiene que hacer el trabajo, porque Papá Puerco está... bueno, a falta de palabra mejor, muerto. Y si para mañana por la mañana no creen en él las suficientes personas, el sol no asomará por el borde del mundo. En esta nueva novela (que debería llevar un aviso en portada por su tremenda adictividad) el destino del Mundodisco queda en manos del auténtico sentido de la fiesta más entrañable del calendario, que es poner regalos bajo el árbol y comer hasta reventar. ¿O era la paz y la buena voluntad? Quizá su sentido último sea otro, olvidado hace tiempo. Reseña: «Tras veinte libros en la serie del Mundodisco, Pratchett debe ser el aspirante más creíble al trono que dejó vacante hace tanto tiempo P. G. Wodehouse.» The Times

A short but perfectly formed complete Discworld novel, fully illustrated in lavish colour throughout, THE LAST HERO is an essential part of any Discworld collection. It stars the legendary Cohen the Barbarian, a legend in his own lifetime. Cohen can remember when a hero didn't have to worry about fences and lawyers and civilisation, and when people didn't tell you off for killing dragons. But he can't always remember, these days, where he put his teeth... So now, with his ancient sword and his new walking stick and his old friends - and they're very old friends - Cohen the Barbarian is going on one final quest. He's going to climb the highest mountain in the Discworld and meet his gods. The last hero in the world is going to return what the first hero stole. With a vengeance. That'll mean the end of the world, if no one stops him in time.

Siguen las aventuras increíbles en Mundodisco. «¡Sé un HOMBRE en la Guardia de la Ciudad! ¡La Guardia de la Ciudad necesita HOMBRES!» Hasta ahora, sin embargo, la Guardia Nocturna solo cuenta con el cabo Zanahoria (técnicamente un enano), el agente Cuddy (realmente un enano), el agente Detritus (un troll), la agente Angua (una mujer... la mayor parte del tiempo) y el cabo Nobbs (descalificado de la carrera evolutiva por hacer trampas). Y necesitan toda la ayuda que puedan conseguir. Porque hay un asesino suelto en las calles, con un arma nueva y mortífera y, lo más peligroso, un PLAN para devolver a la ciudad de Ankh-Morpork su grandeza perdida. Además, tienen que desenmascararlo antes del mediodía, cuando el capitán Vimes devuelva su placa y se case con la mujer más rica de la ciudad. Comparado con lo que les viene encima, acabar con aquel dragón que atacó la ciudad hace un tiempo resultó fácil, ¡hasta enfrentarse a un ejército de enanos sería más fácil! Y si la tarea es complicada para un cuerpo de vigilancia normal, para la Guardia Nocturna puede convertirse, literalmente, en un auténtico «rompecocos»...

'A foot on the neck is nine points of the law' There are many who say that the art of diplomacy is an intricate and complex dance. There are others who maintain that it's merely a matter of who carries the biggest stick. The oldest and most inscrutable (not to mention heavily fortified) empire on the Discworld is in turmoil, brought about by the revolutionary treatise What I did on My Holidays. Workers are uniting, with nothing to lose but their water buffaloes; warlords are struggling for power - and what the nation wants, to avoid terrible doom for everyone, is a wizard. Rincewind is not the Disc’s premier wizard – in fact, he can’t even spell ‘wizard’ – but no-one specified whether competence was an issue. And they do have a very big stick... Mighty Battles! Revolution! Death! War! (And his sons Terror and Panic and daughter Clancy).

Una historia de intriga en Mundodisco: dos asesinatos inexplicables, un largo envenenamiento y bastantes pistas falsas. Alguien está asesinando a ancianitos inofensivos en Ankh-Morpork y la Guardia de la Ciudad quiere saber quién es. También quiere saber otras muchas cosas, como quién está envenenando lentamente al patricio y dejando la ciudad sin gobierno. Y cómo lo hace. Y por qué los gólems se comportan de forma tan extraña últimammente. Y por qué todas las malditas pistas apuntan en la dirección equivocada. Y lo más inquietante de todo: cómo es posible que Nobby Nobbs (que necesita papeles firmados para demostrar que es un ser humano) esté recibiendo invitaciones para las fiestas más selectas d de la ciudad. Todo un reto para el comandante Sam Vimes y su tropa multiétnica de la Guardia de Ankh-Morpork, en una historia de intriga con la que Pratchett demuestra una vez más que las investigaciones policiales en el Mundodisco siempre deparan más de una sorpresa.

Master Nathaniel Chanticleer, Mayor of Lud, was a man much given to introspection, doubting reality, and dreaming. None of which he revealed naturally. For the town of Lud was a prosperous, bustling little country port, situated at the confluence of two rivers, The Dapple and The Dawl, the former having its source in the land of Faerie, beyond the Elfin Marches and the Debatable Hills to the West.
