SIR TERRY PRATCHETT is one of the most popular authors writing today. He lives behind a keyboard in Wiltshire and says he 'doesn't want to get a life, because it feels as though he's trying to lead three already'. He was appointed OBE in 1998. His first Discworld novel for children, "The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents, " was awarded the 2001 Carnegie Medal. "Hogfather "is the twentieth novel in his phenomenally successful Discworld series.
"[Combines] the energy of The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy and
the inventiveness of Alice in Wonderland...It has also an
intelligent wit and a truly original grim and comic grasp of the
nature of things"
"I'm addicted to Terry Pratchett." -A.S. Byatt, "Sunday Times"
"Pratchett's writing is a constant delight. No one mixes the fantastical and mundane to better comic effect or offers sharper insights into the absurdities of human endeavour." -"Daily Mail"
