The Last Hero

A Discworld Fable

A short but perfectly formed complete Discworld novel, fully illustrated in lavish colour throughout, THE LAST HERO is an essential part of any Discworld collection.

It stars the legendary Cohen the Barbarian, a legend in his own lifetime. Cohen can remember when a hero didn´t have to worry about fences and lawyers and civilisation, and when people didn´t tell you off for killing dragons. But he can´t always remember, these days, where he put his teeth...

So now, with his ancient sword and his new walking stick and his old friends - and they´re very old friends - Cohen the Barbarian is going on one final quest. He´s going to climb the highest mountain in the Discworld and meet his gods. The last hero in the world is going to return what the first hero stole. With a vengeance.

That´ll mean the end of the world, if no one stops him in time.

Portrait

Sir Terry Pratchett is a publishing phenomenon. Among his many prizes and citations are the World Fantasy Life Achievement Award, the Carnegie Medal, the BSFA Award, eight honorary doctorates and, of course, a knighthood. In 2012, he won a BAFTA for his documentary on the subject of assisted suicide, ´Terry Pratchett: Choosing to Die´. He is the author of fifty bestselling books but is best known for the globally renowned Discworld series.

The first Discworld novel, The Colour of Magic, was published in 1983, and the series is still going strong almost three decades later. Four Discworld novels - Hogfather, Going Postal, The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic - have been adapted for television, with more to follow. His books have sold approximately 85 million copies worldwide (but who´s counting?), and been translated into forty languages.

In 2007, Terry Pratchett was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer´s Disease. He died in 2015.

Paul Kidby discovered Terry Pratchett´s Discworld in 1993 and since then has devoted his working life to the place. He is the illustrator of THE PRATCHETT PORTFOLIO, the bestsellers THE LAST HERO and THE ART OF DISCWORLD, as well as the Discworld DIARIES, cards, T-shirts, maps, mugs and, of course, the covers.
