Terry Pratchett Short Story Collection Coming This Summer

There’s great news for lovers of the late, and positively great, Sir Terry Pratchett. According to The Bookseller, Penguin Random House Children’s has announced the coming of a collection of Pratchett’s short stories to be published this summer. As a young man, Pratchett wrote a series of hilarious children’s short stories which were compiled, posthumously, into the first volume: Dragon’s at Crumbling Castle. The coming collection of 14 short stories, titled The Witches Vacuum Cleaner, will be illustrated by Mark Beech.  


In a press release, the managing director at Penguin Random House Children’s, Francesca Dow, commented, “Dragons at Crumbling Castle engaged a new generation of Terry Pratchett fans, and we are delighted to be building on this success by publishing a second collection of Terry’s fantastically funny stories. Once you’ve read Pratchett, you love Pratchett – and our mission is to inspire even more young readers with his wonderful stories.”
