About This Item

First edition, second impression (Gollancz, 1988). Signed and inscribed by the author to the title page. Originally published two months earlier in November of the previous year. The fourth novel in the Discworld series.

Publisher's original black cloth with lettering to spine in gilt and white endpapers and paste-downs. A near fine copy with some spotting to top edge. Contents lovely and clean otherwise and free from names and inscriptions.

The original dust jacket is price-clipped with a touch of wear to spine head and fading to spine panel. An excellent, near fine copy overall. Rare inscribed.

Synopsis

Terry Pratchett's profoundly irreverent novels are consistent number one bestseller in England, where they have catapulted him into the highest echelons of parody next to Mark Twain, Kurt Vonnegut, Douglas Adams, and Carl Hiaasen.In this Discworld installment, Death comes to Mort with an offer he can't refuse -- especially since being, well, dead isn't compulsory.As Death's apprentice, he'll have free board and lodging, use of the company horse, and he won't need time off for family funerals. The position is everything Mort thought he'd ever wanted, until he discovers that this perfect job can be a killer on his love life.
