The Colour of Magic

The Colour of Magic  - Terry Pratchett Although not my favourite Discworld, it's clever and well-realized. The setting was better established than I remembered, actually.

Terry Pratchett manages to turn many fantasy tropes on their heads with the first tourist on the Disc, Twoflower. Of course, in Ankh-Morpork parlance, tourist is equivalent to idiot-with-money.
