A splendid send-up of government, the postal system, and everything that lies in between in this newest entry in Terry Pratchett’s internationally bestselling Discworld series. 

Convicted con man and forger Moist von Lipwig is given a choice: Face the hangman’s noose, or get Ankh Morpork’s ancient Post Office up and running efficiently!

It was a tough decision . . .

Now, the former criminal is facing really big problems. There’s tons of undelivered mail. Ghosts are talking to him. One of the postmen is 18,000 years old. And you really wouldn’t want to know what his new girlfriend can do with a shoe.

To top it all off, shadowy characters don’t want the mail moved. Instead, they want him dead—deader than all those dead letters. (And here he’d thought that all he’d have to face was rain, snow, and gloom of night . . .)


  • Talk about a fun read

    Terry has always been close to my heart when it comes to fantasy writing. His intellectual way of telling a story and pulling you in is second to none. Characters so well developed that they're real to the touch... wizards who don't take wizarding seriously as the rest of the world, coppers just doing their jobs and a tyrant who has ways of getting people to do things his way without you realizing you're doing it... Is masterful. Couple that with sarcasm, double-entendre and superb inner inner dialogue and you got a hell of a read. Bring it on Terry... I'm eagerly awaiting to have my mind blow. PS can I get to Dolly Sisters from Treacle Mine rd ??
