    One thought on “Theatre of Cruelty”

    1. Interesting. I never would have known about this if not for .A short story set in Discworld that I never knew about before.Here's a link to the full text. Reproduced with Pratchett's permission. lspace/books/toc/toc-eIt's very short. But it's fun to see a new piece of the character development that takes place after Guards Guards and before Men at Arms. Also, it helps if you know what a Punch and Judy show is.

    2. Punch and Judy on the Discworld.This is a very short and very early Discworld story, first published in 1993 and you can get this for free online. Carrot is still a Constable.Fred Colon and Nobby Nobbs have found a murder victim and after ruling out suicide (barely) they engage in some sleuth work that could only be accomplished by Fred and Nobby.Carrot comes in to save the day and does some smooth detective work by coming up with a very unusual witness to the crime.Pratchett’s signature humor [...]

    3. Guards! Guards! is my favourite Discworld book and this short story reminded me of that.In only a couple of pages you'll get: Corporal Carrot solving a suspicious death in an Anhk-Morpork alley; Vimes and Nobbs make an appearance, of course; DEATH helps the law too. Oh, and there are gnomes.I love the Night Watch characters.

    4. I spotted a review for this on . It is a mere snippet of a story running to four pages. I tracked it down thanks to a link from one of the reviews.This is typical Pratchett. Funny and knowing without being too up itself. It features a cameo from DEATH too, what is not to like? A little knowledge of Punch and Judy would be useful in understanding this.

    5. This is a short story set in the Discworld universe, featuring some of the characters from the Watch subseries. When I say short, I mean miniscule at about 4 pages. It can be read for free from here: lspace/books/toc/toc-eA dead body is found, and Carrot attempts to figure out who murdered him. The first part of this story is cute and I was enjoying it, but the ending didn’t make the slightest bit of sense to me. It was obviously a joke about a TV show, but I didn’t know which one. I read so [...]

    6. This is a very short story, published online, and free. In the CITY WATCH sub series of DISCWORLD, it falls directly after Guards! Guards! Basically, it's a parody on the Punch and Judy Show, but with gnomes rather than puppets. Carrot solves the mystery, with a little help from Death. Recommended reading for Disworld "City Watch" fans, but otherwise, nothing special, and rather silly.You can find it here at L Space: lspace/books/toc/toc-e

    7. I don't remember if I have ever read a "book" that fast. It was fun, though, but I kinda felt like it was only introduction to something bigger. I know, I know - it's not. But it could be :)

    8. Available in the book A Blink of the Screen, a short Discworld story concerning the death of a Punch & Judy Puppeteer. It features Carrot and Vimes and it just helps the novels make sense: something has to happen in between killing Dragons and the assassination attempts.[First read: 26th June, 2015.Second read: 28th December, 2017.]Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Pinterest | Shop | Etsy

    9. Captain Carrot is one of my favourite Discworld characters, sitting comfortably up there with Granny Weatherwax and Vimes, and I can't tell you how much I would have liked this to be a full-length novel. Carrot and his simple, linear thinking is always so entertaining, especially as I'm convinced that underneath he knows precisely what he's doing. Alas, this little story is only a few pages long. Possibly too short for what it is, but still very entertaining.

    10. I didn't really get it. I understand there is something to understand ("this is a pune or play on words" again, I guess), but if you're not "in" on the "in joke", then it's not really funny. Anyway. Short read, available online, Carrot and Death, fine enough.

    11. This short story pokes fun at Punch & Judy men and their seemingly violent nature by having the character portrayed as gnomes. Not the best, but still a must read for Discworld fans.

    12. Discworld #14.5 (City Watch #01.5)A vignette of The Watch. Just another idea. Perhaps that's how Men At Arms was born - or a deleted scene. Shame it wasn't another complete novel. Sausages! Then again, there are several ready for re-reading:Guards! Guards! [1989] - Discworld #08 (City Watch #01)Men At Arms [1993] - Discworld #15 (City Watch #02)Feet Of Clay [1996] - Discworld #19 (City Watch #03)Jingo [1997] - Discworld #21 (City Watch #04)The Fifth Elephant - [1999] - Discworld #24 (City Watch [...]

    13. A quick, clever short story with a few laughs. It helps to be familiar with a Punch and Judy show.I knocked it down a few stars since its a bit too short, more flash fiction than short story, and it jumps scenes a bit too forcefully, and then just ends. I don't expect a full story, but it felt very bare bones.

    14. Short and bitter sweet, reading it after the kidnapping of Sir Terry by Death. Just what you need On a grey September morning.

    15. Death makes an appearance as witness to a murder and Carrot is the officer of the law interrogating him Oh, Carrot!

    16. This very short story follows Carrot, who in charge of investigating a difficult murder. It is a very fast read but Pratchett was able to fit a couple of magic sentences there.

    17. Rather silly, to be perfectly honest. I can imagine it might be intriguing for someone who is not familiar with Discworld. It's probably a good way to know if you like Pratchett's writing style and you get introductions to the Discworld, Ankh-Morpork, the City Watch and Death.
