Discworld's only demonology hacker, Eric, is about to make life very difficult for the rest of Ankh-Morpork's denizens. This would-be Faust is very bad-at his work, that is. Eric wants to fulfill three wishes: to live forever, to be master of the universe, and to have a hot babe. Instead of conjuring a demon, Eric brings forth a wizard whose incompetence is matched only by Eric's. All he wants is to fulfill three little wishes:to live forever, to be master of the universe, and to have a stylin' hot babe. But Eric isn't even good at getting his own way. Instead of a powerful demon, he conjures, well, Rincewind, a wizard whose incompetence is matched only by Eric's. And as if that wasn't bad enough, that lovable travel accessory the luggage has arrived, too. Accompanied by his best friends, there's only one thing Eric wishes now-that he'd never been born!

One of the funniest starts to a book ever! Too bad the rest of it doesn't continue in this vein. Eric is one of the smallest Discworld novels, and not one of the most clever, but it does continue the Rincewind story from where it left off in Sourcery. As always, the Luggage is dogged in its pursuit of its master, terrorizing the inhabitants of whatever place, or time it ends up in. Eric could have been an interesting character, but he gets dragged around, doesn't learn from his experience, and there is no indication of what becomes of him, or Rincewind for that matter, afterwards. Some different places and times of the Discworld are explored, and getting to see the end and beginning of it is a treat.
