Time is a resource. Everyone knows it has to be managed.

But the construction of the world's first truly accurate clock starts a race against, well, time for Lu T..

Tiffany wants to be a witch when she grows up. A proper one, with a pointy hat. And flying, she's always dreamed of flying (though it's cold up there, you have to wear really thick pants, two layers). But she's worried Tiffany isn't a very 'witchy' name.

WYRD SISTERS IS THE SIXTH NOVEL IN THE DISCWORLD SEQUENCE - THE FUNNIEST FANTASY SERIES EVER.
Things like crowns had a troublesome effect on clever folks; it was best to leave all the reigning to the kind of people whose eyebrows met in the middle. Three witches gathered on a lonely heath. A king cruelly murdered, his throne usurped by his ambitious cousin. A child heir and the crown of the kingdom, both missing. Witches don't have these kind of dynastic problems themselves - in fact, th..
