BeschreibungWitches are not by nature gregarious, and they certainly don't have leaders. Granny Weatherwax was the most highly-regarded of the leaders they didn't have. But even "she" found that meddling in royal politics was a lot more difficult than certain playwrights would have you believe... WYRD SISTERS IS THE SIXTH NOVEL IN THE DISCWORLD SEQUENCE -- THE FUNNIEST FANTASY SERIES EVER.
PortraitTerry 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. He is the author of the phenomenally successful Discworld series and his trilogy for young readers, The Bromeliad, is scheduled to be adapted into a spectacular animated movie. His first Discworld novel for children, THE AMAZING MAURICE AND HIS EDUCATED RODENTS, was awarded the 2001 Carnegie Medal.
Pressestimmen"'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'" The Times "'One of the perennial joys of modern fiction'" Mail on Sunday "'One of the pleasures of the book is the way in which literary classics float effortlessly through them in a way that would be pounced on as inter-textual in another author but is never allowed to become strident or alienating in Pratchett's work'" Guardian
