The scale of this novel is something I will never forget. The concepts, charater development (and species development), and just the power of the story telling will leave you wanting for nothing except more of this story once you finish.

On the planet of Discworld, phrases like "there's a Death in the family" take on a whole new meaning. Young Susan has always suspected that her Grandfather was different, as though all the time he spent riding a white horse and wielding a scythe weren't enough of a giveaway.

Go and listen to all the DEATH series. You will not be sorry. Never imagined a book could be so musical.

Mort, like many teenagers, is gangly, unpromising, and struggling with a menial job - in his case, as Death's apprentice. He can barely handle his simple task of ushering souls out of Discworld, but he really screws up when he meets the beautiful Princess Keli, who is scheduled to be assassinated.

Harlan Ellison has won more awards for imaginative literature than any other living author, but only aficionados of Ellison’s singular work have been aware of another of his passions…he is a great oral interpreter of his stories. His recordings have been difficult to obtain…by his choice. In 1999, for the first time, he was lured into the studio to record this stunning retrospective.

Harlan Ellison is an incredible writer, and orator to boot. Well worth the time and definitely worth the money. A boy and his dog clearly inspired the fallout universe.
