Publisher Comments:

'Look after the dead', said the priests, 'and the dead will look after you.'

 

Wise words in all probability, but a tall order when you have just become the pharaoh of a small and penniless country whose largesse — and indeed treasury — is unlikely to stretch to the building of a monumental pyramid to honour your dead father.

About the Author

TERRY PRATCHETT is one of the most popular authors writing today. He lives behind a keyboard in Wiltshire and says he 'doesn't want to get a life, because it feels as though he's trying to lead three already'. He was appointed OBE in 1998. He is the author of the phenomenally successful Discworld series and his trilogy for young readers, The Bromeliad, is scheduled to be adapted into a spectacular animated movie. His first Discworld novel for children, The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents, was awarded the 2001 Carnegie Medal.
