‘I could tell which of my fellow tube passengers had downloaded it to their e-readers by the bouts of spontaneous laughter’ Ben Aaronovitch, Guardian The Discworld is very much like our own – if our own were to consist of a flat planet balanced on the back of four elephants which stand on the back of a giant turtle, that is . . . Change is in the air for Moist von Lipwig, swindler, con-man, and (naturally) head of the Royal Bank and Post Office. A steaming, clanging new invention – a steam locomotive named Iron Girder, to be precise – is drawing astonished crowds. Suddenly it’s a matter of national importance that the trains run on time. Moist does not enjoy hard work. His input at the bank and post office consists mainly of words, which are not that heavy. Or greasy. And it certainly doesn’t involve rickety bridges, runaway cheeses or a fat controller with knuckledusters. What Moist does enjoy is being alive, which may not be a perk of running the new railway. Because, of course, some people have OBJECTIONS, and they’ll go to extremes to stop locomotion in its tracks. ____________________ The Discworld novels can be read in any order but Raising Steam is the third and final book in the Moist von Lipwig series.

Captain Arturo Sanders, former spaceship captain, now sword sandal epic lead character, has settled into his accidental time travel adventure. Sort of. Or is it time travel? All those paradox questions like if he changes his current now and as a result changes the history of the future, then how does come back to make those changes if his future no longer exists?In the end he largely shelved these arguments as well as the ones that suggested he was in an alternate universe anyway. There was no way of proving or knowing the answers to any of these questions given the 5th century tech base the locals had available.Of course, no sword and sandals epic would be complete without a horde of hairy barbarians - que the Selgovae just over the northern border. Or beautiful barbarian princesses, well one at least. Then of course there is the self-proclaimed Comes in Eboracum, the remaining local running dog lackey of the filthy imperialist oppressors. (That would be Honorius in Ravenna).Oh and somebody wants him dead... as in personally. It would all be so much easier if they all just left him alone to get on with railways, telescopes, two masted brigs, panes of glass and so for and so on.....
