Particularly as its carried though space on the back of a giant turtle (sex unknown). It plays by different rules. But then, some things are the same everywhere. The Discs very existence is about to be threatened by a strange new blight: the worlds first tourist, upon whose survival rests the peace and prosperity of the land. Unfortunately, the person charged with maintaining that survival in the face of robbers, mercenaries and, well, Death, is a spectacularly inept wizard… ____________________ The Discworld novels can be read in any order but The Colour of Magic is the first book in the Wizards series.
