As the mighty alien fleet from the very latest computer game thunders across the computer screen, Johnny prepares to blow them into the usual million pieces. But then they send him a message: We surrender. They're not supposed to do that! They're supposed to die. And computer joysticks don't have Don't Fire buttons....

It's hard enough trying to save Mankind from the Galactic Hordes. It's even harder trying to save the Galactic Hordes from Mankind. But it's only a game, isn't it. Isn't it?

Here is a hugely entertaining and thought-provoking new adventure from the master of comic fantasy, Terry Pratchett. Download and start listening now!

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Review by Luke Daffron | 2/9/2014

    " Interesting principle, fairly dated at this point. Doesn't go too deep as a YA novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Review by Monika | 1/19/2014

    " Brilliant. Absolutely genius. This is the reason why I love Terry Pratchett's books since I was a teenage girl. "

    " Brilliant Pratchett for MG readers, although, obviously, quite enjoyable for the adults as well. I cannot get the Possum to try this, much to my chagrin. She eschews science fiction. Oh, well, her sister will love it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Review by Andre | 12/28/2013

    " A book on kids and video games (and more). Has the Pratchett humour and deeper sensibilities. A good read (if dated - clearly set in the world of 1991 or so). "
