• "Bestselling, fedora-sporting, multi award-winning Knight of the Realm, creator of worlds and one of the most popular British authors on the planet, Terry Pratchett is not so much a writer as a one-man publishing phenomenon who has single-handedly re-shaped the world of fantasy fiction... satirised everything from religion to Hollywood, been adapted for stage and screen and proven beyond all doubt that a wizard's staff does indeed have a knob on the end." --SFX

Snuff takes place outside Ankh-Morpork, at Lady Sybil's "country place" (some place! hundreds of servants!). Young Sam is now seven years old, and takes a prominent part in the book, in the process developing a profound interest in poo; and there is the usual cast of villains, good guys, clowns, and so on. Pratchett even comes up with yet another race, the goblins, to incorporate into his multi-species world.
I was especially pleased to spot one of Pratchett's endless in-jokes: a very fat woman, a member of the Ankh-Morpork Watch, a woman with a big heart. Named "Precious", I'm sure in tribute to Alexander McCall Smith's Precious Ramotswe, the chief character in the Number One Ladies Detective Agency series.
Anyway, a good read. Pratchett lovers, go to it!
In 39 novels he has never once disappointed and the Discworld's favourite copper continues to save the day while always making it home to read a bedtime story to his son. Looking forward to reading #40.
