Pratchett's novels have sold over 45 million copies worldwide, and this month there are a number of titles to tie in with the anniversary, including a graphic novel, a new edition of "The Colour Of Magic" and a book of favourite quotes. This follows former conman Moist von Lipwig as he takes control of the running of Ankh-Morpork's Royal Mint and the bank next door. But all isn't as it seems. 'Terry Pratchett is a comic genius.' "Daily Express"
Who would not to wish to be the man in charge of Ankh-Morpork's Royal Mint and the bank next door? It's a job for life. But, as former con-man Moist von Lipwig is learning, the life is not necessarily for long. The Chief Cashier is almost certainly a vampire. And there's something nameless in the cellar.
