Steve and Colm turn their attentions to the illustrated homage to the last days of sword and sorcery and the first days of spacefaring that is The Last Hero. They discuss the nature of heroism, legacy, magic, science-v-religion, mortality and Diego Maradona.
Colm & Steve travel to the Aurient to tackle Rincewind’s return in Interesting Times. They ramble on about legacy, colonialism, revolution and an absolutely epic finale. They’ve reached the stage in the series where there’s a lot of comparing Discworld books with Discworld books (and also the point where they fawn over the UU Faculty and Twoflower a lot).
Colm and Rose discuss The Light Fantastic, a further step towards the Discworld most readers are familiar with. They talk about all manner of things that didn’t feature in The Colour of Magic; a plot, a finale, an apocalyptic event and an octogenarian barbarian hero. In honour of Twoflower, they also detail the best tourist destinations on the Disc – in the unlikely event you are sucked through the pages and into the book a la The Pagemaster.
