In The Science of Discworld II: The Globe our authors join forces
again to see just what happens when the wizards meddle with history
in a battle against the elves for the future of humanity on Earth.
London is replaced by a dozy Neanderthal village. The Renaissance
is given a push. The role of fat women in art is developed. And one
very famous playwright gets born and writes The Play. Weaving
together a fast-paced Discworld novelette with cutting-edge
scientific commentary on the evolution and development of the human
mind, culture, language, art, and science, The Globe presents a
fascinating and brilliantly original view of the world we live in.
The scene of the final epic battle is the first production of A
Midsummer's Night Dream at the Globe Theatre.
