The Discworld's last continent is hot and very dry, and everything is poisonous. All this place has between itself and wind-blown doom is the inept wizard Rincewind, the only hero left. This is the 22nd in Terry Pratchett's Discworld series.
Who is this hero striding across the red desert? Sheep shearer, 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. Yes, it's Rincewind, the inept wizard who can't even spell wizard. He's the only hero left.
Still...no worries, eh? --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
