Fifty Years of Terry Pratchett

Carpe Jugulum

Published 5th November 1998

Mightily Oats has not picked a good time to be a priest. He thought he’d come to the mountain kingdom of Lancre for a simple little religious ceremony. Now he’s caught between vampires and witches, and he’s not sure there is a right side.  

There are the witches: young Agnes, who is really in two minds about everything, Magrat, who is trying to combine witchcraft and nappies, Nanny Ogg, who is far too knowing and Granny Weatherwax, who is big trouble.

And the vampires are intelligent, with fancy waistcoats and lots of style. They’re out of the casket and want a bite of the future.
