Pyramids
Night Watch
Small Gods

Also, Thud!, Feet of Clay, and Going Postal are superb, but probably these three not quite as good as the first books I mentioned, which all seem to have another level of depth to them in the ideas they're exploring.

Looking forward to getting into the Witches and Wizards novels next.


Will be indulgent and quote myself, but am adding Maskerade to my list. Fantastic novel.

i enjoyed Pyramids, Small gods, Witches Abroad and loads more, but one that stuck with me slightly more than most was Moving Pictures. It's crazy but the book reminded me of too many dreams I have had. Very spooky! :shock: Also I can't watch films anymore without thinking about it. :lol:

The Last Continent sounds really good although I haven't read it or own it :(

It was originally an ilustrated story, that's why it's so short. :wink:
