Tickets cost:

Booking fees apply. A maximum of two tickets are permitted per person.

If you weren't able to purchase a ticket you are still welcome to come along and queue from 11:30pm to sample the Discworld experience and to purchase a copy of The Shepherd's Crown when it goes on sale to the general public at the stroke of midnight.

If you live further north and cannot make the London launch Waterstones in Leeds are celebrating the launch of The Shepherd's Crown with a Pratchett celebration evening on the 27th August at 7pm.

Their website states: Join us for an evening celebrating one of the great fantasy writers ever to have lived, Terry Pratchett, on the release day of his final Discworld novel, The Shepherd's Crown.

There'll be a quiz full of random Discworld and Pratchett tidbits, a competition to find the best Discworld-inspired outfit (shotgun the luggage...) and more prizes that you can shake a giant turtle at (though four elephants makes all the difference).

We'll also have Pratchett-inspired boardgames, special offers exclusive to the evening, plenty of food and drink and a few more surprises...

Best of all... it's completely free! Simply call 0113-244-4588 to reserve a space.
