Bumbling wizard Rincewind and hapless tourist Twoflower have survived a host of misadventures… only to face annihilation as a red star hurtles towards the Discworld in this gloriously funny second installment in Sir Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series (also the second book in the Wizards collection)

It’s just one of those days when nothing seems to go right - and a most inopportune time for the first tourist ever to set foot in Discworld - accompanied by the carnivorous Luggage - to extend his already eventful vacation, even if it’s not quite by choice.
