The Last Hero (GOLLANCZ S.F.)

The Last Hero: A Discworld Fable (Discworld, #27) - Terry Pratchett, Paul Kidby "A Discworld Fable" reads the blurb on the cover. I'm not sure what makes it a fable. Really it's just a regular Discworld book but a bit shorter and with pictures. It's not a graphic novel and the pictures, though very nicely done, are illustrations rather than adding any new information to the story. Which I'm afraid adds up to me feeling like I struggled with the large form-factor of a physical book when I'd probably have been better off with an ebook of just the text. Except such a thing doesn't exist (legally). As a short Discworld novella it's not bad. The plot concerns Cohen the Barbarian taking on the Gods and an attempt to stop him which ends up being a parody of the Apollo moon missions. That was rather fun. Not one of my absolute favourites but another notch on my Discworld-reading belt as it were.
