is amiss at Unseen University, Ankh-Morpork's
most prestigious (i.e., only) institution of
higher learning. A professor is missing--but a
search party is on the way! A bevy of senior
wizards will follow the trail wherever it
leads--even to the other side of Discworld, where
the Last Continent, Fourecks, is under
construction. Imagine a magical land where rain
is but a myth and the ordinary is strange and
past and present run side by side. Experience
terror as you encounter a Mad Dwarf, the Road
Warrior, Death, a Creator or two, the Peach Butt,
and the dreaded meat Pie Floater.
Feel the passion as the denizens of the Last
Continent learn what happens when rain falls and
the rivers fill with water (it spoils regattas,
for one thing).
Thrill to the promise of next year's regatta, in
remote, rustic Didjabringabeearalong. It'll be
absolutely gujeroo (no worry's).

single stereotype you can think of (and
some you may have missed) of Australia is
covered. I found myself reading over
passages I had just finished to be sure I
had just read what I thought I had read.
Even topped Interesting Times, which I
didn't think could be done.
