The Colour Of Magic

The Colour Of Magic

One of the original books upon which the show is based. The Colour of Magic is the first ever Discworld novel, written in 1983.

On a world supported on the back of a giant turtle (sex unknown), a gleeful, explosive, wickedly eccentric expedition sets out. There's an avaricious buy inept wizard, a naïve tourist whose luggage moves on hundreds of dear little legs, dragons who only exist ifyou believe in them, and of course THE EDGE of the planet...

First published: Thursday 24th November 1983
