The Truth by Terry Pratchett

The Truth - Terry Pratchett

Series: Discworld #25

 

Some dwarves set up a printing press in Ankh-Morporkh and Lord Vetinari decides it's time to move with the times and allow it, much to the Engravers' Guild's consternation. The book is a lot of fun, and I liked how Pratchett gave a nod to both the owner of the first printing press in England, William Caxton, and his assistant, Wynkyn de Worde, in naming William de Worde. He gets caught up in everything with the dwarves and basically invents the first newspaper on the Disc.

 

The scenes with Otto Chriek, the vampire photographer are great and I love it whenever poor Gaspode shows up.
