    The Long Mars by Stephen Baxter and Terry Pratchett

    The third book in the Long Earth series, Long Mars continues the story of humanity’s discovery, exploration and exploitation of the multi-universe parallel Earths and now Marses (as a word never designed to be pluralised this is what the authors went with). It’s hard to know what more to say as...

    Unseen Academicals by Terry Pratchett

    Football is the main focus of Unseen Academicals but, as always, all sorts of other subjects receive broadsides from Terry Pratchett’s satirical pen along the way. The staff of Unseen University must field a football team to launch a new and somewhat more controlled style of football as compared...

    Thud!

    At the heart of this novel is the Commander of Ankh-Morpork City Watch, Sam Vimes. Married to dragon breeding Lady Sybil (who has also taken up Sock Darning: She isn't very good at it, but it is the sort of thing one ought to do, as a wife), and with a young son, Sam, expecting his dad to...
