Discworld #16: Soul Music
It's hard to grow up normally when Grandfather rides a white horse and wields a scythe - especially when you have to take over the family business, and everyone mistakes you for the Tooth Fairy. And especially when you have to face the new and addictive music that has entered the Discworld. It's lawless. It changes people. It's called Music with Rocks In. It's got a beat and you can dance to it, but . . . it's alive. And it won't fade away.
