The Carpet People

The only Prachett book I ever liked (excepting his masterful work with Gaiman on Good Omens) was The Carpet People, a book I listened to on cassette. Unfortunately, it has seemingly always been out of print. But you are all in such luck! For on November 24th, 2009 an illustrated version will be made available for your enjoyment! Callooh! Callay! I chortle in my joy!

The Carpet, like that one you need to vacuum under your chair. Zoom in. Very, very close. Where a dropped penny is a towering cliff, mined for eons, and the fray (vacuum) is to be feared even more than you fear doing it. Here is the setting for Prachett's adventure.
