The Long Earth by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter is the first collaboration from Terry Pratchett since his work on Good Omens with Neil Gaiman.
Sir Terry Pratchett first developed his vision of a chain of parallel worlds, The Long Earth, in an unfinished novel and two short stories originally entitled The High Meggas in 1986, after writing Equal Rites, the third novel in what would turn into the hugely successful Discworld series. Now, at last, this long-gestating concept is to see the light of day in two books written in collaboration with Stephen Baxter, author of Flood, Ark and the Time’s Tapestry and Destiny’s Children series.
‘Our Earth is but one of a chain of parallel worlds, each differing from its neighbours by a little (or a lot) in an infinite landscape of infinite possibilities. And you can just step from one world to the next…’ TERRY PRATCHETT
The Long Earth hits the shelves on 21st June 2012 and we can’t wait, we’ll keep you updated on all things Long Earth here at What Shall I Read?Post A Comment
