Explore the mysteries and peculiarities of our world with Discworld’s wizards in the seriously clever second book in Terry Pratchett’s Science of Discworld series!
Professors Sir Terry Pratchett, Jack Cohen and Ian Stewart authors join forces again to see just what happens when the wizards meddle with history in a battle against the elves for the future of humanity on Earth. London is replaced by a dozy Neanderthal village. The Renaissance is given a push. The role of fat women in art is developed. And one very famous playwright gets born and writes The Play. Weaving together a fast-paced Discworld novelette with cutting-edge scientific commentary on the evolution and development of the human mind, culture, language, art, and science, The Globe presents a fascinating and brilliantly original view of the world we live in staring a cast of characters from the Unseen University. The scene of the final epic battle is the first production of A Midsummer’s Night Dream at the Globe Theatre.
