A collection of short fiction from Terry Pratchett, spanning the whole of his writing career from his schooldays to Discworld and the present day.
In the four decades since his first book appeared in print, Terry Pratchett has become one of the world’s bestselling and best-loved authors. Here for the first time are his short stories and other short-form fiction collected into one volume.
A Blink of the Screen charts the course of Pratchett’s long writing career: from his schooldays to his first writing job on the Bucks Free Press; the origins of his debut novel, The Carpet People; and the dizzy mastery of the phenomenally successful Discworld series.
Here are characters both familiar and yet to be discovered; abandoned worlds and others still expanding; adventure, chickens, death, disco, and, actually, some quite disturbing ideas about Christmas, all of it shot through with Terry’s inimitable brand of humor. With an introduction by Booker Prize-winning author, A. S. Byatt, A Blink of the Screen is a book to treasure. Download and start listening now!
