Dan Schatz BS: Terry Pratchett - seeking similar author (40) RE: BS: Terry Pratchett - seeking similar author 07 Jul 12


Try Barry Hughart's Bridge of Birds and it's two sequels. These "novels of an ancient China that never was" combine the cleverness, humor, and fantasy of Pratchett - though if anything I'd say Hughart's books are even better and cleverer. Barry Hughart lived in China and has clearly made an in-depth study of Chinese religion and folklore - enough to write a respectful and hilarious parody.
