A collection of rediscovered short stories from the incredible imagination of a young journalist who would become Sir Terry Pratchett! Originally published under a pseudonym in The Western Daily Press in the 1970s and 1980s, and recently rediscovered thanks to the super sleuthing of Discworld fans, these ‘lost’ stories provide the gift of precious ‘new’ writing from our favourite author. This special limited edition for indie bookshops features sprayed red edges and a warm white cover.
A set of twenty unearthed tales from Discworld’s distinguished author, and former journalist, originally written for The Western Daily Press before he became the Terry Pratchett we all know and love. The rediscovery of these ‘lost’ tales, penned under the pseudonym Patrick Kearns was, as Terry’s long time friend, literary assistant and biographer Rob Wilkins has confirmed ‘nothing short of a miracle’. After the publication of Terry’s biography where we all learned a thing or five about Terry’s life before Discworld, these wonderfully witty and wise stories are a ‘miraculous’ final testament to the depth and breadth of Terry’s literary work.
