Books about Terry Pratchett

 
Terry Pratchett recommends

Mistress Masham's Repose (1946)
T H White
"Has always been a favourite of mine... This book is one for the hall of fame."

Wasp (1957)
Eric Frank Russell
"I'd have given anything to have written Wasp. I can't imagine a funnier terrorists' handbook."
The Leaky Establishment
The Leaky Establishment (1984)
David Langford
"I'd rank this book alongside Michael Frayn's The Tin Men, another neglected classic. I've wanted for years to see it back in print. It is one of those books you end up buying several copies of, because you just have to lend it to friends. It's very funny. It's very real. "

The Sky Lords (1988)
(Sky Lords, book 1)
John Brosnan
"Ideas explode in all directions. This is genuine gosh-wow stuff, the sf ideas packed in so tight it's standing room only. We all ought to grow up reading this sort of thing ; it's aerobics for the imagination."

The Chronicles Of Narmo (1992)
Caitlin Moran
"Oh God, this good already and she's only sixteen."

The Eyre Affair (2001)
(Thursday Next, book 1)
Jasper Fforde
"Ingenious. I shall watch Jasper Fforde nervously."
Guts
Guts (2001)
John Grant and David Langford
"Dave Langford: Wit, slightly deaf person, raconteur and finest swordsman in all of christendom."

Coraline (2002)
Neil Gaiman
"It has the delicate horror of the finest fairy tales, and it is a masterpiece. "

When the People Fell (2007)
Cordwainer Smith
"Read this. Cordwainer Smith is timeless."

Half-sick of Shadows (2012)
David Logan
"A MOST EXCELLENT WRITER."
