Product Description

Pyramids by Terry Pratchett First Edition Gollancz 1989. A near fine copy that is free of previous owner's inscriptions and has no foxing or toning to contents or edges. In a near fine dust jacket. Not price clipped and with no creasing, tears or loss and no toning to spine.

In the sweltering heat of the Discworld's desert kingdom of Djelibeybi, young Teppic, an unlikely pharaoh trained as an assassin, inherits the throne after his father's untimely demise. Faced with the daunting task of ruling a perpetually bankrupt kingdom and fulfilling the ancient tradition of building a monumental pyramid for his predecessor, Teppic finds himself caught in a whirlwind of political intrigue, religious fervor, and supernatural shenanigans. As Teppic grapples with the complexities of leadership, he uncovers a sinister plot involving a power-hungry priest, a scheming goddess, and an ancient grudge that threatens to unravel the very fabric of reality. With the help of a loyal handmaiden, a wise old librarian, and a talking crocodile, Teppic must navigate a treacherous path, confront his own misconceptions about kingship, and ultimately decide the fate of his kingdom. Terry Pratchett's Pyramids is a hilarious and thought-provoking satire that blends fantasy, history, and philosophical musings. It's a story about the absurdity of power, the importance of questioning tradition, and the unexpected challenges of becoming a ruler. Through Teppic's journey, Pratchett reminds us that even in the face of overwhelming odds, a little common sense and a willingness to learn can go a long way.
