Mort Introduction by Neil Gaiman Synopsis

Death comes to us all. When he came to Mort, he offered him a job. Henceforth, Death is no longer going to be the end, merely the means to an end. It's an offer Mort can't refuse. As Death's apprentice he'll have free board, use of the company horse - and being dead isn't compulsory. It's a dream job - until he discovers that it can be a killer on his love life...

Mort Introduction by Neil Gaiman Press Reviews

The genius of Pratchett is that he never goes for the straight allegory . . . he remains one of the most consistently funny writers around; a master of the stealth simile, the time-delay pun and the deflationary three-part list . . . I could tell which of my fellow tube passengers had downloaded it to their e-readers by the bouts of spontaneous laughter. -- BEN AARONOVITCH * Guardian * A master storyteller. He is endlessly inventive . . . a master of complex jokes, good bad jokes, good dreadful jokes and a kind of insidious wisdom about human nature . . . I read his books at a gallop and then reread them every time I am ill or exhausted * Guardian * Up there with PG Wodehouse. Amazing. Wonderful. Fantastic. * Daily Mail * The Discworld novels have always been among the most serious of comedies, the most relevant and real of fantasies . . . Pratchett has been rightly praised for comic invention and whimsy; he does not always get enough credit for the psychological comedy of embarrassment which makes us blush with self-recognition . . . at once hilariously cynical and idealistically practical. * Independent * Pratchett too requires us to think. Whenever I read his stories I find myself thinking that he is grown up . He may write benign comedy but he knows how horribly complicated and exciting the Universe is. -- A. S. BYATT * The Times *
