Eric calls up a demon to grant him three wishes - but what he gets is the Discworld's most incompetent wizard...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Terry Pratchett You can't find an author that compares with Terry Pratchett's story telling abilities. So funny, smart and witty. Having read all his books I am at a loss of where to turn to next and nothing else measures up. Make sure you read these books in order of publication or you miss so many references and jokes.
