Description

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 WitchA??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 delightA??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??a Terry Pratchett book is a small miracleA?A??and The WitchA??s Vacuum Cleaner proves to be another miracle taking its place alongside PratchettA??s astounding and cherished body of work.

Professional reviews

"Standout English actor Julian Rhind-Tutt narrates these early Terry Pratchett gems with a gentle, timeless, settled-in feel. There are also glee and winks in Rhind-Tutt's voice when he reads about cowboys and trolls, three men in a submarine in a bathtub, and, of course, a witch riding a vacuum cleaner who catches the amorous eye of a local magician. Pratchett was just a 17-year-old cub reporter when he wrote some of these fantasy pieces, and already he was laying down the foundation for a fifty-year career as one of the world's best-loved humorists. A fun collection. B.P. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
