Steam is rising over Discworld, driven by Mister Simnel, the
man with a flat cap and a sliding rule. He has produced a
great clanging monster of a machine that harnesses the power
of all of the elements—earth, air, fire, and water—and it’s
soon drawing astonished crowds.
To the consternation of Ankh-Morpork’s formidable
Patrician, Lord Vetinari, no one is in charge of this new
invention. This needs to be rectified, and who better than
the man he has already appointed master of the Post Office,
the Mint, and the Royal Bank: Moist von Lipwig. Moist is not
a man who enjoys hard work—unless it is dependent on words,
which are not very heavy and don’t always need greasing. He
does enjoy being alive, however, which makes a new job offer
from Vetinari hard to refuse.
Moist will have to grapple with gallons of grease,
goblins, a fat controller with a history of throwing
employees down the stairs, and some very angry dwarfs if
he’s going to stop it all from going off the rails . . .
