I greet every new Discworld novel, this is #31, with the same emotion - joy at returning to Discworld; a twisted, satirical, fantasy reflection of our own world. Making Money is a sequel to Going Postal (2004). Once again Lord Vetinari has an offer for Moist von Lipwig, former hustler, current Postmaster General, to leave the Post Office and to make some real money running the Royal Mint. As always Pratchett does not disappoint - funny twists and turns await. ~ Reviewed by Ben Parker

Max Brooks travels to all corners of the planet interviewing the men, women, and children that came face-to-face with the undead in the Zombie War, our first truly global war. World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War documents these brutally honest and vivid experiences, testing the courage of the reader as we are forced to consider how close humanity can come to extinction. As we battle forces never before conceived as possible, this novel is a testament to the resiliance of the human spirit and our will to survive. ~ Reviewed by Kim Potter

A hilarious first novel that will appeal to anyone with even a passing interest in comics. The beauty of the book is that it comes across as a straight faced memoir whose characters just happen to wear capes. It tells the story of Dr Impossible, a super-villain, and the super-heroes assigned to catch him. I was hooked from the first page where Dr Impossible is mulling over the question why does being one of the smartest people in the world automatically mean you have to be evil and end up in jail. ~ Reviewed by Ben Parker
