Unseen academicals a novel of Discworld

The wizards at Ankh-Morpork's Unseen University are renowned for many things'wisdom, magic, and their love of teatime'but athletics is most assuredly not on the list. And so when Lord Ventinari, the city's benevolent tyrant, strongly suggests to Archchancellor Mustrum Ridcully that the university revive an erstwhile tradition and once again put forth a football team composed of faculty, students, and staff, the wizards of UU find themselves in a quandary. To begin with, they have to figure out just what it is that makes this sport'soccer with a bit of rugby thrown in'so popular with Ankh-Morporkians of all ages and social strata. Then they have to learn how to play it. Oh, and on top of that, they must win a football match without using magic. Meanwhile, Trev (a handsome street urchin and a right good kicker) falls hard for kitchen maid Juliet (beautiful, dim, and perhaps the greatest fashion model there ever was), and Juliet's best pal, UU night cook Glenda (homely, sensible, and a baker of jolly good pies) befriends the mysterious Mr. Nutt (about whom no one knows very much, including Mr. Nutt, which is worrisome . . .). As the big match approaches, these four lives are entangled and changed forever. Because the thing about football'the most important thing about football'is that it is never just about football.

  • "Die Zauberer der Unsichtbaren Universität haben sich bereits vielen Herausforderungen stellen müssen, einem Fussballspiel allerdings noch nie. Bis der neue Traditionsbeauftragte Ponder Stibbons eine erschreckende Entdeckung macht: Wenn die Zauberer nicht sofort eine Fussballmannschaft gründen, verlieren sie den Anspruch auf eine üppige Geldspende. Es hilft alles nichts: Elf Sportsfreunde müssen her. Doch als endlich das grosse Spiel ansteht, geht es schon lange nicht mehr nur um Fussball ... Terry Pratchett, geboren 1948, fand im zarten Alter von 13 Jahren den ersten Käufer für eine seiner Geschichten. Heute zählt der kleine Mann mit dem grossen schwarzen Schlapphut zu den erfolgreichsten Autoren Grossbritanniens und ist einer der populärsten Fantasy-Autoren der Welt. Seit 1983 schreibt er Scheibenwelt-Romane. Inzwischen widmet er sich ganz seiner Schöpfung, und seine Gemeinde wird täglich grösser. Dabei ist er zweifellos der Autor mit dem skurrilsten ehemaligen Beruf: Er war jahrelang Pressesprecher für fünf Atomkraftwerke beim Central Electricity Generating Board. Nach eigener Auskunft hat er nur deshalb noch kein Buch darüber geschrieben, weil es ihm ja doch keiner glauben würde. Seinen Sinn für Realsatire hat der schrille Job jedenfalls geschärft. Von seinen Scheibenwelt-Romanen wurden weltweit rund 65 Millionen Exemplare verkauft, seine Werke sind in 37 Sprachen übersetzt. Für seine Verdienste um die englische Literatur wurde ihm sogar die Ritterwürde verliehen. Umgeben von den modernsten Computern (und so durch ein Stück Schnur mit dem Rest der Welt verbunden) lebt Terry Pratchett mit seiner Frau Lyn in der englischen Grafschaft Wiltshire."
  • "Om een belangrijk legaat te behouden, moet de Gesloten Universiteit een voetbalwedstijd zien te winnen."
  • "Football has come to the ancient city of Ankh-Morpork - not the old-fashioned pushing and shoving, but the new, fast football with pointy hats for goalposts and balls that go GLOING when dropped. Now the wizards of Unseen University must win a football match without using magic, so they'll try everything else. The Big Match draws in a street urchin with a talent for kicking a tin can, a maker of jolly good pies, a dim, but beautiful young woman, and the mysterious Mr Nutt. (No one knows much about Mr Nutt, not even poor Mr Nutt.) As the match approaches, four lives are entangled and changed forever. Because the thing about football - the IMPORTANT thing about football - is that it is not just about football."
