Description: "A book meant to be cherished." -- The New York Times Book Review "Some writers simply possess the Gift. No matter what they bring out. . . . That's certainly the case with Terry Pratchett." -- The Washington Post Book World "In the history of comic fantasy, Pratchett has no equals for invention or for range." -- The Wall Street Journal "Clever . . . insightful. . . . [Pratchett's] wry wit is as good as gold." -- The Boston Globe "Pratchett is one of the great comic writers and storytellers of our time." -- The Guardian "One of the giants in the world of fantasy literature." -- New York Daily News "You can't call what Pratchett does satire--it's far too good-natured for that--but he has a satirist's instinct for the absurd and a cartoonist's eye for the telling detail." -- The Daily Telegraph (London) "A short story collection covering the entire career of one of our most prolific, and beloved, fantasy writers. . . . One of the main draws of[ A Blink of the Screen ]for serious fans, or aspiring writers, will be the chance to trace the evolution of Pratchett's craft--but there's plenty here for readers who have never heard of him to enjoy." -- Kirkus Reviews "A little absurdism, a little wordplay, a lot of inventive fantasy, a lot of heart, and a deep-seated fascination with the way technologies change societies. . . . Pratchett can easily fill an entire bookcase by himself. . . . But he has kept the piquant sense of someone playing with language, with new worlds, and with the familiar old tropes that he enjoys upending." --NPR "What Pratchett does is not just great, but unparalleled. In five hundred years, it won't be the Nobel laureates who are being studied. It's going to be this guy." --Brandon Sanderson, Tor.com "One of the greatest comic novelists of all time, in his way the equal of Wodehouse and Waugh." -- GQ (UK) "The master of humorous fantasy . . . [Pratchett] should be recognized as one of the more significant contemporary English-language satirists." -- Publishers Weekly
