The Colour of Magic

The Colour of Magic
by Pratchett, Terry
SF P9122co 1989

The original Discworld novel and the first in the Rincewind saga, The Colour of Magic is award winning author Sir Terry Pratchett's initial offering into the fantasy genre. Set in a world situated on the back of the massive space turtle A'Tuin, the book follows the misadventures of the failed wizard, Rincewind. Employed as a tour guide by the four eyed foreigner Twoflower (the world's first tourist), the wayward wizard is charged with keeping the naive newcomer safe from the multitude of dangers he encounters as he sight sees his way across the continent and beyond. Simultaneously light hearted and poignant, The Colour of Magic will suck readers in from the first page. It is a must read for fans of science fiction and the perfect introduction to a series that has been nothing but a delight for more than 30 years and across 40 books.

The Colour of Magic is also available as a downloadable e-book, and is on order as an audiobook on CD.
