    Going Postal by Terry Pratchett

A splendid send-up of government, the postal system, and everything that lies in between in this newest entry in Terry Pratchett's internationally bestselling Discworld series. Convicted con man and forger Moist von Lipwig is given a choice: Face the hangman's noose, or get Ankh Morpork's ancient Post Office up and running efficiently! It was a tough decision . . .

    Making Money by Terry Pratchett

Amazingly, former arch-swindler-turned-Postmaster General Moist von Lipwig has somehow managed to get the woefully inefficient Ankh-Morpork Post Office running like . . . well, not like a government office at all. Now the supreme despot Lord Vetinari is asking Moist if he'd like to make some real money. Vetinari wants Moist to resuscitate the venerable Royal Mint--so that perhaps it will no longer cost considerably more than a penny to make a penny.

    Raising Steam by Terry Pratchett

Steam is rising over Discworld. . . . Mister Simnel has produced a great clanging monster of a machine that harnesses the power of all 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. Who better to take the lead than the man he has already appointed master of the Post Office, the Mint and the Royal Bank?
