In the twenty-eighth Discworld novel the Discworld goes to war
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 and his first Discworld novel for children, The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents, was awarded the 2001 Carnegie Medal. Monstrous Regiment is the twenty-eighth novel in his phenomenally successful Discworld series.
