Overview

The Witch's Vacuum Cleaner and Other Stories by Terry Pratchett

Do you believe in magic? Can you imagine a war between wizards? An exciting journey in an airship or down in a submarine? Would you like to meet the fastest truncheon in the Wild West?

The Witch’s Vacuum Cleaner is the second fabulously funny short-story collection from the late acclaimed storyteller Terry Pratchett. A follow-up to Dragons at Crumbling Castle, this second batch of storytelling gems features stories written when Sir Terry was just seventeen years old and working as a junior reporter. In these pages, new Pratchett fans will find wonder, mayhem, sorcery, and delight—and loyal readers will recognize the seeds of ideas that went on to influence his most beloved tales later in life.

As Neil Gaiman says, “a Terry Pratchett book is a small miracle”—and The Witch’s Vacuum Cleaner proves to be another miracle taking its place alongside Pratchett’s astounding and cherished body of work.

If you like wimsy, you will love this collection of stories.

These stories are mostly cute rather than good or genuinely entertaining. There are clever ideas within them, but only one or two captured the spark that made the Discworld series so enjoyable. This is undoubtedly the reason that these stories weren’t collected and published while Pratchett was still alive. True Pratchett fans will appreciate this last glimpse into his imagination but it doesn’t have a lot to offer for anyone else.
