Summary :

Mightily Oats has not picked a good time to be a priest. He thought he'd come down to Lancre for a simple ceremony. Now he's caught up in a war between vampires and witches.

There's Young Agnes, who is really in two minds about everything. Magrat, who is trying to combine witchcraft and nappies, Nanny Ogg.... and Granny Weatherwax, who is big trouble.

And the vampires are intelligent. They've got style and fancy waistcoats. They've got out of their casket, and want a bite of the future. Mightily Oats knows he has a prayer, but he wishes he had an axe.

Blurbs:
  • "Pratchett lampoons everything from Christian superstition to Swiss Army knives here, proving that the fantasy sire of Discworld 'still ate'nt dead.'" Publishers Weekly
  • "Fresh, inventive, and funny... Pratchett has a gift for the absurd, the comic, the fantastic, and the outrageous. His world is a combination of slapstick, puns, humorous situations and outlandish characters. Any new novel by him is guaranteed... it will make the bestseller list." Birmingham Post (U.K.)
  • "An enduring, endearing presence in comic literature.... Pratchett's position as a leading comic novelist now seems as permanently assured as that of P.G. Wodehouse.... Despite outward appearances, these cannot really be called fantasy novels, partly because Pratchett is too intent on undermining all the conventions of the genre and partly because they mirror so effectively the current concerns of our own society." The Guardian (U.K.)
