Comments & Further Information

A UK paperback edition with a 3 to 10 number sequence.  Originally published in this edition in 2003, this is an undated 3rd printing.  Age tanning to the pages.  The covers are showing signs of wear at the extremities and there is a crease about half way down the front cover at the leading edge.

SYNOPSIS:  “They get everywhere.  And they like humans to be superstitious, fearful and frightened of thunder.  They’re after our future and must be stopped… but by who?

Enter the wizards of the Unseen University, who in the best-selling Science of Discworld unwittingly created Earth and our own universe.  At the time they quite failed to notice humanity.  (Well, we’ve only been around for a million years, so we’re easily overlooked…)  But now, at last, they’ve found us.

The Glove is a unique book, weaving together a fast-paced Discworld novelette with cutting-edge scientific commentary on the evolution and development of the human mind, culture, language, art and science.  The result – as the wizards grapple with the nature of Good and Evil, and history is rewritten several times over – is a fascinating and brilliantly original view of the world we live in.”
