Time Is A Resource.
Everyone Knows It Has To Be Managed.
And on Discworld that is the job of the Monks of History, who store
it and pump it from the places it's wasted (like underwater - how
much time does a codfish need?) to places like cities, where there's
never enough time.
But the construction of the world's first truly accurate clock
starts a race against, well, time for Lu Tze and his apprentice
Lobsang Ludd. Because it will stop time. And that will be only the
start of everyone's problems.
The Thief Of Time comes complete with a full supporting cast of
heroes and villains, yetis, martial artists and Ronnie, the fifth
horseman of the Apocalypse (who left before they became famous).
