Discworld #26: Thief of Time
On the Discworld, Time is a resource managed by the highly capable Monks of History, who store it and pump it from places where it is wasted, like underwater (how much time do fish really need?), to places where there's never enough of it, like cities. Ironically, the construction of the world's first truly accurate clock threatens to stop Time altogether. And so begins a literal race against Time for the monk Lu Tze and his apprentice. For if the perfect clock starts ticking, Time as we know it will stop - and then the trouble will really begin.

Discworld #28: Monstrous Regiment
War has come to the Discworld - again. And to no one's great surprise, the conflict centers on the small duchy of Borogravia, which has long prided itself on its aggressiveness. Since her brother Paul marched off to battle, Polly has been running her family's inn - even though the revered national deity has decreed that female ownership of a business is an Abomination (with, among others, oysters, rocks, and the color blue). To keep the inn in the family, Polly must find her brother. So she cuts off her hair, dons masculine garb, and - aided by a well-placed pair of socks - sets out to join this man's army.
