YMMV / Eric

  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: This book is sometimes considered one with respect to the Discworld series, given its short length, different publisher, unusual themes (more at home in Good Omens in some ways) and the fact that the events therein are never referred to again (except for a Continuity Nod in The Last Continent when Rincewind mentions in passing that he's met the Creator). Even the writing style is jarring, feeling more akin to the first couple books before Pratchett matured his writing.
