Default Terry Pratchett

Terry Pratchett is British comedy/Fantasy writer who is best known for his Discworld series. Moral conflicts are presented in a Wrinkle in Time fashion, with the good and evil forces gaining strength from willpower and belief. His big innovation is to show how a traditional fantasy world with wizards, dragons, and knights turns upside down when things intrude from the real world such as a modern postal system or rock music.

The movie adaptions of his books are all over the top because of how unabashedly they stick to the source material, although this comes at the expense of clarity.

I followed the series because in the first book I read, the following exchange takes place.

He sits in the middle of the road expectantly, silently staring the wizard down.
"Don't bother trying to appeal to my better nature, because I haven't got one."
He says nothing, but louder this time.
"Oh, all right."

For anyone that's interested (and potential new converts), a conscientious youtuber has asked permission to put 3 of the 5 discworld movies up on a free ad disabled channel, and it has been granted.
