Terry Pratchett

A tsunami leaves a boy dealing with the trauma of burying his people in Nation, Terry Pratchett's latest Carnegie-shortlisted novel – a book he says he's been preparing to write all his life. Here he is discussing it in Andrew Johnson's article in The Independent. In addition, Pratchett has set up a new prize Anywhere But Here, Anywhen But Now for debut novelists resident in the UK, Ireland or the Commonwealth. It's an odd title, but he gives a long explanation which begins: "Anywhere but here, anywhen but now. Which means we are after stories set on Earth, although it may be an Earth that might have been, or might yet be, one that has gone down a different leg of the famous trousers of time (see the illustration in almost every book about quantum theory)."

We have Nation and other Terry Pratchett books in our catalogue.
