Raising Steam (Discworld)

Raising Steam (Discworld)

Terry Pratchett


Steam is emerging over Discworld. . . .
Mister Simnel has produced a superb clanging monster of a computer that harnesses the facility of the entire elements—earth, air, hearth, and water—and it’s quickly drawing astonished crowds. To the consternation of Ankh-Morpork’s bold Patrician, Lord Vetinari, nobody is answerable for this new invention. Who larger to take the lead than the fellow he has already appointed grasp of the put up workplace, the Mint and the Royal Bank?
wet von Lipwig isn't really a guy who enjoys difficult work—unless it's depending on phrases, which aren't very heavy and don’t regularly want greasing. He does get pleasure from being alive, even though, which makes a brand new task provide from Vetinari challenging to refuse. wet should grapple with gallons of grease, goblins, a controller with a heritage of throwing staff down the steps, and a few very indignant dwarfs if he’s going to prevent all of it from going off the rails.
