The planet Earth has picked up a parasite life form - elves. They get everywhere. And they like humans to be superstitious, fearful and frightened of thunder. They're after our future and must be stopped. but by who?.

The Globe looks at what happens when the wizards of the Unseen University commence battle against the elves and how this impacts on our universe. The Renaissance, for example, is given a push. London is replaced by a dozy Neanderthal village. The role of fat women in art is developed. And one very famous playwright get born and writes The Play.

Once again Ian Stewart and Jack Cohen help Pratchett to flesh out a Discworld novel with insightful scientific commentary in the development and evolution of the human psyche.

Read this and you will never see our world in quite the same light again.

Delightfully funny.
