The latest in the highly-successful series of Discworld diaries, featuring extensive original material by Terry Pratchett. The Thieves¿ Guild celebrates its 21st anniversary with its first Yearbook, featuring an address from Lord Vetinari himself, who encouraged the setting-up of the Guild to avoid the random, unfair and disorganised crime which, until his ascent to power, plagued the great city of Ankh-Morpork. Now crime is legal, organised and run to an annual budget and everyone is happy ¿ well, almost everyone: woe betide the unlicensed thief, highwayman or slipperlegger who tries to do business without Guild approval! Stunningly illustrated, as in previous years, by Paul Kidby.Biografía del autor:
Stephen Briggs lives in Oxfordshire and has been involved for many years in the sinister world of amateur dramatics, which is how he came to discover the Discworld. Having read one book, he was hooked and read the entire canon over the next three weeks. Oxford's Studio Theatre Club went on to stage his adaptations of WYRD SISTERS, MORT, GUARDS! GUARDS!...and many, many more. As well as compiling THE DISCWORLD COMPANION, THE NEW DISCWORLD COMPANION and, now, TURTLE RECALL: THE DISCWORLD COMPANION ... SO FAR, he has also co-authored the Discworld Diaries, the Mapps and has dramatised most of the Discworld novels. Stephen also now voices the UK and US Discworld audio books.
Paul Kidby discovered Terry Pratchett's Discworld in 1993 and since then has devoted his working life to the place. He is the illustrator of THE PRATCHETT PORTFOLIO, the bestsellers THE LAST HERO and THE ART OF DISCWORLD, as well as the Discworld DIARIES, cards, T-shirts, maps, mugs and, of course, the covers.
