Six months after his death, Terry Pratchett's novel, 'The Shepherd's Crown', has hit the shops in the UK and Commonwealth today. It is also available for download on kindle. Some bookshops opened earlier than usual for this major event with one in Perth, Australia, handing out a free box of tissues with each copy, in recognition of a 'final farewell'.
The number one listed bestseller in Teen and Young Adult Humorous Fiction on Amazon.co.uk is the 41st and final novel in his Discworld series and features the witch Tiffany Aching. It is described by one reviewer as 'a fitting end to Terry Pratchett's work'.
The book will be published in the US on September 1.
About the book:
Deep in the Chalk, something is stirring. The owls and the foxes can sense it, and Tiffany Aching feels it in her boots. An old enemy is gathering strength.
This is a time of endings and beginnings, old friends and new, a blurring of edges and a shifting of power. Now Tiffany stands between the light and the dark, the good and the bad.
As the fairy horde prepares for invasion, Tiffany must summon all the witches to stand with her. To protect the land. Her land.
There will be a reckoning . . .
