All the Discworld's a Stage - Unseen Academicals & Feet of Clay & The Rince Cycle
Published by Oberon
Large Mixed Cast
The three plays in the Collection are ...
Feet of Clay
Someone is killing Lord Vetinari, Patrician of Ankh-Morpork
No one knows who, no one knows why and, worst of all, no one knows how he just gets weaker and weaker
But it's not just Vetinari
Across the city, people are being murdered, but there's no trace of anything alive having been at the crime scene
Commander Vimes, Head of the City Watch, is a man who hates 'clues'
He and his team must question everyone the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker
In a city teeming with vampires, werewolves, dwarfs with attitude and golems, Vimes must solve the crimes and save the Patrician.
The Rince Cycle
As a punishment, failed wizard Rincewind is given the task of guiding and safeguarding the Disc's first tourist, Twoflower (with his magical luggage on legs)
As they travel the city and beyond, they meet the world's oldest hero, Cohen the Barbarian
With him, and with Bethan (a qualified sacrificial victim), they encounter druids, trolls, adventurers, a hairdresser and a power-crazed wizard
Oh, and Death
But not fatally
And did we mention that Rincewind also has to save the world from destruction by a huge Red Star destined to collide with the Discworld at Hogswatch?
The Rince Cycle is mostly based on The Light Fantastic, with bits of The Colour of Magic and Sourcery added for good measure
'Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair Ankh-Morpork, where we lay our scene'
Football divides the city
Each area has its own team and rivalry means supporters never mix
Until a Dimwell fan falls for a Dolly Sisters girl
And now an ancient bequest means the Wizards of Unseen University must win a football match
Without using magic
Luckily they're coached by the mysterious Mr Nutt - no one knows anything much about Mr Nutt, not even Mr Nutt
As the match approaches, four lives are entangled and changed forever
Because the thing about football the important thing about football is that it is not just about football
