A man with no eyes. No eyes at all. Two tunnels in his head . . .

It’s not easy being a witch, and it’s certainly not all whizzing about on broomsticks, but Tiffany Aching – teen witch – is doing her best.Until something evil wakes up, something that stirs up all the old stories about nasty old witches, so that just wearing a pointy hat suddenly seems a very bad idea.Worse still, this evil ghost from the past is hunting down one witch in particular. He’s hunting for Tiffany. Andhe’s found her . . .

A fabulous Discworld title filled with witches and magic and told in the inimitable Terry Pratchett style, I Shall Wear Midnight is the fourth Discworld title to feature Tiffany and her tiny, fightin’, boozin’ pictsie friends, the Nac Mac Feegle (aka The Wee Free Men).
From the Inside Flap

‘I’m feared for the big wee hag…’

Tiffany Aching is a witch. And she thinks she’s doing a good job for the people of the Chalk. Even if the job does seem to involve a lot of bandaging legs and not much, well, magic.

Or sleep.

But somewhere – some time – there’s a tangled ball of evil and spite, of hatred and malice, that has woken up. And it’s waking up all the old stories too – stories about evil old witches.

Suddenly Tiffany isn't so sure she's doing the right thing. And her tiny allies - the fightin' Nac Mac Feegles - are only making things more difficult.

Things are supposed to look better after a good night’s sleep.

But they won’t.

They’re about to get a lot, lot worse . . .

I wouldn't call myself a terry pratchett fan as I don't think I've read any of his books(been meaning to but not got around to it), but I did like the tv programs on sky one based on his books(missed the most recent one I think).

I 'won' the limited edition of this book for £15 during the black friday deals on amazon, it's being delivered(along with a couple of other items) today(as it's past midnight). do I have to have read any of the other books or is this a 'stand-alone' story?

You don`t have to read any other books as the majority of his books read well alone, but be warned once you`ve read one you willl want to read the others!

It would help to have at least a 'knowledge' of Discworld but you can kind of read it as stand alone, but catch up a bit first - so you get the picture.
