    Terry Pratchett

    Fantasie 'IT WAS SO MUCH EASIER TO BLAME IT ON THEM . IT WAS BLEAKLY DEPRESSING TO THINK THAT THEY WERE US .' War is brewing on the Discworld. An island has appeared from the ocean depths, right in the middle of the sea which separates the proud empires of Klatch and Ankh-Morpork. Of course, no one would dream of starting a war with the neighbours without a perfectly good reason . . . such as a 'strategic' piece of old rock, for instance. But when a Klatchian Prince is almost assassinated, peace talks break down and violent nationalism begins to spread. Ankh-Morpork prepares to fight. Only thing is, they don't have an army. Or much in the way of weapons. Commander Sam Vimes and the 'officially disbanded' City Watch get caught up in a deadly political game where the enemy appears to be on both sides and no one will listen to reason. And if they don't stop this absurd war, no one will . . . 'Generous, amusing and the ideal boarding point for those who have never visited Discworld' Sunday Telegra

    Terry Pratchett

    Fantasie ' You should do things because they're right. Not because gods say so. They might say something different another time. ' Religion is a competitive business in the Discworld. Everyone has their own opinion and their own gods, of every shape and size - all fighting for faith, followers, and a place at the top. So when the great god Om accidentally manifests himself as a lowly tortoise, stripped of all divine power, it's clear he's become less important than he realised. In such instances, you need an acolyte, and fast. Enter Brutha, the Chosen One - or at least the only One available. He wants peace, justice and love - but that's hard to achieve in a world where religion means power, and corruption reigns supreme . . . 'An intriguing satire on institutionalized religion corrupted by power . . .' Independent 'Deftly weaves themes of forgiveness, belief and spiritual regeneration' The Times The Discworld novels can be read in any order but Small Gods is a standalone.

I screamed in pain, but that scream was quickly silenced as another one escaped when Leonardo also penetrated me, this time into my back passage, all in one go. "God..." I sobbed, my forehead pressed against Maximus's chest. Unlike me, his heartbeats were utterly steady and calm, and I knew the other twin possessed the same ability. They could control their emotions while I couldn't. "We're going to make you pray today," Maximus said. "Yeah, call all the gods you want. None can save you," Leonardo pulled out and slammed his erection back inside me, followed by Maximus. They had just torn me in both places. The pain... it said it all. As the
