520    This collection of new critical essays applies a wide 
       range of critical frameworks to the analysis of prolific 
       fantasy author Terry Pratchett's Discworld books. Essays 
       focus on topics such as Pratchett's treatment of noise and
       silence and their political implications; art as an 
       anodyne for racial conflict; humor and cognitive 
       debugging; visual semiotics; linguistic stylistics and 
       readers' perspectives of word choice; and Derrida and the 
       ""monstrous Regiment of Women."" The volume also includes 
       an annotated bibliography of critical sources. The essays 
       provide new critical perspectives on Pratch.
