About the Author

Terry Pratchett (1948-2015) was the acclaimed creator of the globally revered Discworld series. In all, he authored more than fifty bestselling books, which have sold more than one hundred million copies worldwide. His novels have been widely adapted for stage and screen, and he was the winner of multiple prizes, including the Carnegie Medal. He was awarded a knighthood by Queen Elizabeth II for his services to literature in 2009, although he always wryly maintained that his greatest service to literature was to avoid writing any.

Reviews

"In short, this is as busy and as daft as any other Discworld yarn, which means it is the quintessence of daft. Nobody writes fantasy funnier than Pratchett." -- Booklist

"At its heart, this is an intelligent, cheeky love letter to football, its fans and the unifying power of sports. -- Publishers Weekly

"This account of Unseen University's entry into the world of soccer (or, as they occasionally call it, "foot-the-ball") pushes past the usual conventions of satire to offer equal parts absurdist philosophy and heartwarming romance....A witty addition to the long-running fantasy series" -- Kirkus Reviews

"Thirty-seven books in and . . . Discworld is still going strong . . . and doing so with undimmed, triumphant exuberance. " -- The Guardian

"A triumphant effort." -- The Independent on Sunday
