"Il vento ululava. I lampi pugnalavano la terra a casaccio come inefficienti assassini. Il tuono rombava e rimbombava. Al centro di questa tempesta di elementi c'era un fuoco che ardeva, tra i cespugli di ginestra gocciolanti, come la follia nell'occhio di una donnola. Esso illuminava tre figure accovacciate. Mentre il calderone ribolliva, una voce anziana gracchiò: 'Quando c'incontreremo di nuovo noi tre?'". Terry Pratchett racconta una storia che si svolge tra streghe, molti re, pugnali, corone, tempeste, nani, gatti, buffoni, boia, troll, festeggiamenti.

Genre: Documentary

Terry Pratchett has one last adventure he wants to go on. Eighteen years ago Terry had a life-changing experience in the jungles of Borneo, where he encountered orangutans in the wild for the first time. Now he is going back to find out what the future holds for these endangered species, and discover a new threat to their habitat that could push them to the brink of extinction. His Alzheimer's will make the trip an incredible challenge both physically and mentally, as he contemplates the role of mankind in the eradication of the planet's species, and considers his own inevitable extinction. Terry is accompanied by his friend and assistant Rob Wilkins, as they investigate an Indonesian street market where endangered species are reportedly on sale, meet the world expert on orangutans, Dr Birute Galdikas, and journey into the rainforest in search of the former king of the orangutans, Kusasi.

The new Discworld novel Night Watch has the power and energy that characterizes Terry Pratchett at his occasional best, as well as the wild surreal humour he always gives us. Sam Vimes, running hero of the Guards sequence, finds himself cast back in time to the Ankh-Morpork of his youth–a much nastier city, with an actively deranged Patrician and a sadistic secret police–and finding himself filling in for Keel, the tough honest copper who teaches the young Vimes everything he knows. And, more worryingly, who dies heroically in the insurrection Vimes knows to be imminent. With a psychopath from his own time rising in the vile ranks of the Cable Street Unmentionables complicating things, Vimes has to ensure that history takes its course so that he will have the right future to go back to, and to keep his younger self alive–this is Pratchett's plotting at its most thoroughly constructed and wonderfully devious. Ankh-Morpork has for a long time been one of the most thoroughly imagined cities in fantasy–here Pratchett gives us a fascinating gloomy glimpse of its past and of the younger selves of some of his best-loved characters, and of the brief-lived People's Republic of Treacle-Mine Road.

2045–2059: Während sich die Menschheit auf der Datumerde weiterentwickelt, ihrem von Katastrophen heimgesuchten und in die Jahre gekommenen Heimatplaneten, schreitet auch die Besiedelung der unendlich vielen Welten der Langen Erde voran. Lobsang, der als künstliche Intelligenz über Jahrzehnte die Lange Erde erforscht hat, lebt nach einem Zusammenbruch als Mensch getarnt auf einer exotischen, weit entfernten Erde. Dort glaubt er, ein »normales« Leben führen zu können. Doch irgendetwas stimmt mit dieser Kopie der Erde nicht.

Mit wenig erfreulichen Aussichten für deren Bewohner …

Gli altri bambini hanno gli xilofoni. A Susan basta chiedere al nonno di tirarsi su la maglietta. Avere sedici anni non è mai facile… soprattutto se c'è un Morte in famiglia. Dopotutto non è una passeggiata crescere normalmente quando hai un nonno che cavalca un cavallo bianco e impugna una gigantesca falce. Specialmente se decide di prendersi una meritata pausa per andare alla ricerca del senso della vita e scoprire 'perché le cose vanno come vanno', e tu devi rilevare gli affari di famiglia sperando che la gente non continui a scambiarti per la Fatina dei Denti. E soprattutto se ti trovi faccia a faccia con una musica che crea dipendenza che ha stregato l'intero Mondo Disco…
