Cameras roll - which means the imps inside have to paint really fast - on the fantastic Discworld when the alchemists discover the magic of the silver screen. But what is the dark secret of Holy Wood hill? As the alien cliches of Tinsel Town pour into the world, it's up to the Disc's first film stars to find out...

Thrill as Victor Tugelbend (Can't sing. Can't dance. Can handle a sword a little.) and Theda Withel (I come from a little town you've probably never even heard of) battle the forces of evil and cinema advertising...

Scream as Gaspode the Wonder Dog nearly saves the day...

Eat popcorn as you watch the filming of Blown Away, the oddest Civil War picture ever made... A Passionate Saga set Against the Background of a World Gone Mad! With a Thousand Elephants!

(And afterwards, why not dine at Harga's House of Ribs, for the best in international cuisine; only two minutes from this book...).

    " I gave this one a go again because I'd been reading Pratchett on the bus recently and felt like I might have judged it poorly in the past; undeservedly putting it in the same range as Monstrous Regiment and not in a middle tier with Small Gods. Not that it was bad, I just didn't like it. And? Well, I'm glad I read it again, since it let me hang out with the wizards, who are always awesome, especially Ridcully. It was nice to be reminded of Gaspode's origin, as well as Detritus, and between Dibbler and the elephant herders it was well worth it. I thought the brief scene from the Patrician's view was interesting, since it was actually a bit more introspective than I feel he usually is--a meditation on how he lives for the city that I didn't expect. As always with Pratchett, when I don't think something's funny I have to ask myself if I just didn't get the joke, and I think part of it's true here--there were some old film nods I'd missed, as well as some of the more Lovecraftian moments. However, I had trouble liking Ginger or, after he left the University, Victor, and that probably doesn't help matters. I'd read somewhere that Pratchett thought of his work as almost cinematic in pacing-hence the cuts, sounds, etc, so I was interested in what he had to say about film itself, but, while I agree with some of the points, I didn't really like his conclusion, which is reare for me and Pratchett. I'm glad I read it again, and will certainly not be moving my copy along anytime soon, but not one of my personal faves. "

    " For anyone who's attended college, the tale of Ponder Stibbon's 'exam' alone is worth the read. It's also comforting to know that what Hollywood has done to our world, it can do to another, too. "

    " This book has stuck into my head unlike any other, and I can't decide if it's the brilliance of the book itself or the subject of his satire. I think we're drowning in Hollywood's flotsam & jetsum everyday and this just helps to keep me laughing while we all choke. "
