Truckers, Diggers and Wings

Hi. Can anyone tell me whether these books are available as a trilogy? Not as one big heavy book, but perhaps all three in a box or something? If so, any idea of the ISBN? Thanks.

Hi Surfmonkey and welcome to the site. :D

They are indeed available seperately - the series was wriiten seperately betwen 1988 and 1990.

Look here on Amazon to see Truckers with links to the other two books just below. :)

Thanks for your reply. What I was really looking for was to see if they were available as a set. I've read them for myself and my daughter's birthday is coming up, and i'd like to get her a set for her own. As I said, I don't want to get one big, heavy book. If a set is available, great. If not I'll by them seperately. Thanks for the help. d:o)

As far as I'm aware they don't come in a boxed set or anything - but they would look pretty good as three seperate books. What a great gift and a really good way of getting your daughter into Pratchett. You might have to explain what Concorde was though. :lol:

Hi, I just bought these three books packaged together for a tenner on ebay. Have a search if you still need them. A few dealers are selling them like that.

I had all three given to me last year as Birthday presents. Individual books & I am ashamed to say I've not read them yet. :oops:
Best wishes,
