A DISCWORLD® NOVEL
Eric is the Discworld's only demonology hacker.Pity he's not very good at it.
All he wants is three wishes granted.Just the usual: to be immortal, rule the world and have the most beautiful woman in the world fall in love with him. He wants to call up a tractable demon. But what he gets is Rincewind, probably the most incompetent wizard in the universe, and the extremely intractable and hostile form of travel accessory known as the Luggage...
With them on his side, Eric's in for a ride through space and time that is bound to make him wish (quite fervently) again - this time that he'd never been born.
'[Terry Pratchett's] genius is for pushing logic to such limits that it reels with the shock'
Gerald Kaufman, Daily Telegraph
