Eric

Formats: Paperback. eBook. Audio.

Eric is the Discworld's only demonology hacker. Pity he's not very good at it.

All he wants is his three wishes granted.Nothing fancy - to be immortal, rule the world, have the most beautiful woman in the world fall madly in love with him, the usual stuff.

But instead of a tractable demon, he calls up Rincewind, probably the most incompetent wizard in the universe, and the extremely intractable and hostile form of travel accessory known as the Luggage.

With them on his side, Eric's in for a ride through space and time that is bound to make him wish (quite fervently) again - this time that he'd never been born.

It appears the words from the book that we had to go here have gone back to the library, we'll see if we can persuade them to come back soon.

His spectacular inventiveness makes the Discworld series one of the perennial joys of modern fiction

Mail on Sunday

The great Terry Pratchett, whose wit is metaphysical, who creates an energetic and lively secondary world, who has a multifarious genius for strong parody ... who deals with death with startling originality. Who writes amazing sentences

A.S. Byatt, New York Times

Like Jonathan Swift, Pratchett uses his other world to hold up a distorting mirror to our own, and like Swift he is a satirist of enormous talent ... incredibly funny ... compulsively readable
