Hogfather by Terry Pratchett

Hogfather by Terry Pratchett
4.5

‘On the second day of Hogswatch I . . . sent my true love back, A nasty little letter, hah, yes indeed, and a partridge in a pear tree—’ Of the quarter or so of the Discworld I’ve explored, Hogfather is my favourite. Vadim Jean’s TV adaptation is superb: I watch it religiously every Christmas, […]

A Guide to Banking in Fantasyland 

This article may contain mild spoilers – though not what I would consider story-breaking spoilers – for The Folding Knife by K.J. Parker, Making Money by Terry Pratchett and Best Served Cold by Joe Abercrombie. These are tough times, and everyone needs a little help with the big decisions. Not sure which bank to choose? […]

Sir Terry Pratchett (1948 – 2015) 

We at Fantasy-Faction are heartbroken by the loss of such a great man as Sir Terry Pratchett. There is a hole in fantasy and science fiction that will not soon be filled and a pain in our hearts that will not soon be comforted. Below we have collected the thoughts of some of our contributors […]

A Slip of the Keyboard by Terry Pratchett

A Slip of the Keyboard by Terry Pratchett

Terry Pratchett is angry. You’ll like him when he is angry. That is the gist of foreword by Neil Gaiman and as you read through the collected works of non-fiction in A Slip of the Keyboard you will see the anger. What is more, you might even develop the same rage (if you didn’t have […]

A Blink Of The Screen by Terry Pratchett

A Blink Of The Screen by Terry Pratchett
4.5

If you’d asked me a couple of years ago if I was a fan of Terry Pratchett, I’d have answered a resounding no. I’d read his first three books back in the late 1980s, but quickly became tired of them; I ‘grew up’ and moved onto ‘better’ reads. Within my circle of friends, though, are […]

Discovering Discworld

Discovering Discworld 

Some of the earliest fantasy I remember reading were books from the Discworld series. This isn’t the usual route into fantasy, and is a little odd because Discworld is something that engages with fantasy as a genre, lovingly poking fun at it while exploring some of its more common tropes. It’s meant for the fantasy […]

The Truth by Terry Pratchett

The Truth by Terry Pratchett

After being convincingly won over by Pratchett’s latest, Snuff, I just had to get my hands on another. Rather than go back to the very beginning and the books I’d read many years ago (and was, in all honesty, disappointed by), I settled for a jump back of a dozen years to his 25th Discworld […]

Snuff by Terry Pratchett

Snuff by Terry Pratchett
4.5

Snuff is Terry Pratchett’s 39th Discworld novel, almost thirty years after writing his first. The series has been a huge success, with worldwide translations, audiobooks, conventions and ceramic figurines worthy of the greatest mantelpieces. It’s also my first dip into the Pratchett water for some time. I’ve never been a huge fan, finding the early […]
