A Blink of the Screen: Collected Shorter Fiction

Anchor, February 2016. Trade Paperback. Item #1214
ISBN: 0804169217


The first career-spanning collection of short fiction by Sir Terry Pratchett--one of the most beloved and bestselling writers of our time--A Blink of the Screen charts the development of Pratchett's creative vision throughout his prolific career, from his early writings in school to the dizzy mastery of the phenomenally successful Discworld series. Along the way we are introduced to the first published pieces from Pratchett's stint as a young journalist, the experimental stories that originated his later works, and the lyrics to the national anthem of Ankh-Morpork, among other treats. Here, readers will find new and unfamiliar characters and fictional worlds alongside well-known ones. They will also find adventure, chickens, death, disco, and, actually, some quite disturbing ideas about Christmas, all infused with Pratchett's inimitable brand of humor and energy.
