Publisher Comments:

They say there are only two things you can count on ...

But that was before DEATH started pondering the existential. Of course, the last thing anyone needs is a squeamish Grim Reaper and soon his Discworld bosses have sent him off with best wishes and a well-earned gold watch. Now DEATH is having the time of his life, finding greener pastures where he can put his scythe to a whole new use.

But like every cutback in an important public service, DEATH's demise soon leads to chaos and unrest — literally, for those whose time was supposed to be up, like Windle Poons. The oldest geezer in the entire faculty of Unseen University — home of magic, wizardry, and big dinners — Windle was looking forward to a wonderful afterlife, not this boring been-there-done-that routine. To get the fresh start he deserves, Windle and the rest of Ankh-Morpork's undead and underemployed set off to find DEATH and save the world for the living (and everybody else, of course).

Synopsis:

When the Grim Reaper begins to ponder the existential, his Discworld bosses send him off with best wishes and a well-earned gold watch. Death is now having the time of his life, but like every cutback in public service, Death's demise soon leads to chaos and unrest. The 11th novel of Pratchett's Discworld series. (August)

Another fantastical foray into the "life" of the Discworld's most famous inhabitant, Death. Due to horribly odd circumstances, Death is out of a job and is forced to get a life. While Death works as a field-hand (Those scythe skills come in quite handy)the citizens of Ankh-Morpork are distressed to realize that the dead aren't staying that way, regardless of how politely they ask them to. To-date this is one of my more favorite Discworld novels if for any other reason because it includes mention of the great dwarven lover Casanunder.
