There's Young Agnes, who is really in two minds about everything. Magrat, who is trying to combine witchcraft and nappies, Nanny Ogg...and Granny Wheatherwax, who is big trouble. And the vampires are intelligent. They've got style and fancy waistcoats. They're out of the casket, and want a bite of the future. Mightly Oats knows he has a prayer, but he wishes he had an axe. Carpe Jugulum is Terry Pratchett's twenty-third Discworld novel - but the first to star vampires.
