This book is probably where the Discworld fantasy started. I have very rarley found it with most Discworld colectors, though. Even those who claim to be fanatics. The blurb on the paperback that I had was what drew me to it - 'Eat your heart out, Copernicus, the flat-earthers were right !'. It was quite alright when I was 13, but reading it now, about 14 years later, I can realize why it never did so well.

If you love the Discworld series, this is the book for you; it's the beginning of the Discworld, without the characters set yet.
