Another great title in the Discworld Series!! The last thing that the wizard Drum Billet did, before Death laid a bony hand on his shoulder, was to pass on his staff of power to the eighth son of an eighth son. Unfortunately for his colleagues in the chauvinistic(not to say misogynistic) world of magic, he failed to check on the newborn baby's sex. . . This is a story about magic and where it goes and perhaps more importantly, where it comes from and why, although it doesn't pretend to answer all or any of these questions.
