The wizards of Unseen University must once again defend Roundworld (aka Earth), not against elves or humans' ignorance, but against Discworld's Omnian priests, who have issued a writ claiming ownership of it. The Omnians fervently believe that the world is round, not flat, and view the discovery of Roundworld as a vindication of their faith. They argue that to leave this artifact in the hands of the wizards would be unacceptable: not only do the academics claim that Discworld is a flat world traveling through space on the back of a turtle, but by creating the Roundworld universe, they have elevated themselves to the level of gods. Ankh-Morpork's venerable tyrant Lord Vetinari agrees to a tribunal, where the wizards Ridcully, Rincewind and Ponder Stibbons can present their case, with key assistance from a Roundworld librarian named Marjorie Daw. Interwoven with the Discworld chapters are Pratchett, Cohen and Stewart's explorations of such topics as big science, creation (dicussing developments in the Big Bang Theory since the first Science of Discworld book was published), subatomic particles, the existence of dark matter, and the psychology of belief. A treat for Discworld fans and popular science readers alike.
No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's; that as men busied themselves about their various concerns they were scrutinised and studied. Yet across the gulf of space, intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic regarded this earth with envious eyes, and slowly and surely drew their plans against us.Then, late one night, in the middle of the English countryside, they landed.

One of the great allegorical works of literature, "Cancer Ward" is both a deeply compassionate study of terminal illness and a brilliant dissection of the "cancerous" Soviet police state. Withdrawn from publication in Russia in 1964, it became, along with "One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich", a work that awoke the conscience of the world. As Robert Service wrote of its appeal in the Independent, "In waging his struggle against Soviet communism, Solzhenitsyn the novelist preferred the rapier to the cudgel".

It was a crime that shocked the world. The CCTV footage shows a young woman pushing through the hospital doors. She walks into the nursery, picks up a baby and places her carefully in a shopping bag.

Then she clips the baby into the car, gets in and drives off. This is where the footage ends. What happens next will leave a mother devastated, and a little boy adrift in a world he will never understand.
