"Humorously entertaining. . . subtly thought-provoking. . . . Pratchett's Discworld books are filled with humor and with magic, but they're rooted in--of all things--real life and cold, hard reason." --Chicago Tribune

The side-splitting sequel to The Color of Magic, The Light Fantastic by New York Times bestselling author Sir Terry Pratchett takes readers on an offbeat journey with bumbling wizard Rincewind--last seen falling off the edge of Discworld--and hapless tourist Twoflower.

It's just one of those days when nothing seems to go right--a most inopportune time for the first tourist ever to set foot (and carnivorous Luggage) on the Discworld to be extending his already eventful vacation. (Not that he currently has much choice in the matter.) But with a monstrous red star on a direct collision course, the future for the residents of this flat planet carried by four elephants riding on the shell of a giant turtle swimming through space appears uncertain at best. Fortunately, there is one individual who can save Discworld from total destruction. Unfortunately, that hero happens to be the singularly inept wizard Rincewind.

Sharp, sardonic, and brilliantly funny, Pratchett once again earns his master satirist reputation, with witty wordplay and irreverent storytelling that fans are sure to love.

The Discworld novels can be read in any order but The Light Fantastic is the second book in the Wizards series.
