Discworld #09: Eric
Eric is the Discworld's only Demonology hacker. Pity he's not very good at it. All he wants is his three wishes granted - to be immortal, rule the world, and have the most beautiful woman in the world fall in love with him. But instead of a tractable demon, he calls up Rincewind and the extremely intractable Luggage. With them on his side, Eric's in for a ride through space and time that is bound to make him wish again - this time, that he'd never been born.

But no one knows quite what is happening or how. A magician is asked to travel to the front line of the Great War to help a naval aerial reconnaissance unit hide its planes from the German guns. On the way to France he meets a certain H.G. Wells. On the airfields of the World War II Bomber Commands, there is also an obsession with camouflage, with misdirection. With deceit. And in a garden, an old man raises a conch shell to his ear and initiates the first Adjacency.
