In a style of silliness peculiar to the British, Terry Pratchett has created a planet called Discworld, populated by daffy wizards, witches, monsters, mythical beasts and creatures of folklore. Thus far the affairs of Discworld have consumed some two dozen immensely popular novels, as well as a computer game, map, encyclopedia and a smattering of miscellany. CARPE JUGULUM (ersatz Latin for "go for the throat") merrily sends up sword-and-sorcery adventures, contemporary preoccupations and what we call civilization. Tony Robinson of “Blackadder” fame makes the most of his facility with accents and funny voices to propagate the fun, though his peculiar rhythms somewhat blunt the delight.
