Raising Steam by Terry Pratchett

RaisingSteamI read Raising Steam in early January, pretty much as soon as I could get my hands on it. Its the latest in the Discworld Series and it does not disappoint. Many of the usual characters of Ankh Morpork are revived (including a 'cameo' by Rincewind).

Moist von Lipwig, Postmaster and head of the Royal Mint and Royal Bank, must usher in the age of steam by managing the creation of the first continental railway. Goblin rights and 'right wing' Dwarves also feature in the novel.

Good old Discworld fun and adventure.
