Description

"Pratchett's humor is international, satirical, devious, knowing, irreverent, unsparing, and above all, funny." —Kirkus Reviews

Determined to create a wish granting demon, an inept young demonologist instead conjures the Discworld's most incompetent wizard in this devilishly humorous adventure in Sir Terry Pratchett's internationally bestselling fantasy series.

Discworld's only demonology hacker, Eric, is about to make life very difficult for the rest of Ankh-Morpork's denizens. This would-be Faust is very bad . . . at his work, that is. All he wants is to fulfill three little wishes: to live forever, to be master of the universe, and to have the woman of his dreams fall for him.

But Eric's desires are much greater than his talents. Instead of a powerful demon, he summons the infamous Rincewind, a wizard whose incompetence is rivaled only by Eric's. As if that wasn't bad enough, that lovable sharp-toothed travel accessory the Luggage has arrived, too. With friends like these, there's only one thing Eric wishes for now—that he'd never been born.

The Discworld novels can be read in any order but Eric is the fourth book in Wizards series. The full collection includes:

  • The Color of Magic
  • The Light Fantastic
  • Sourcery
  • Eric
  • Interesting Times
  • The Last Continent
  • Unseen Academicals
  • Also in This Series
