I enjoyed strata, the whole burying bones for future inhabitants and terra forming planets was a fun idea.

Strata was quite good especially as you can see the roots of the Discworld concept in it but Darkside is a fair bit weaker to be honest.
Its a bit all over the place and was , i feel , a step in Terry finding himself as a writer.

Oddly enough i liked the earlier work of carpet people which predated this and is much more coherant a story.
