This one reunites Rincewind and Twoflower. After Twoflower (the disc's first tourist) returned home, he wrote a small tract (which sounds remarkably like the first day back at school) entitled "What I did on my holidays". As usual where he's concerned it has taken a life of its own and a strange set of consequences results in a mild mannered revolution being set in motion. However, there's an emperor (who's about to die) and Grand Vizier (never trust a grand vizier) in the offing, along with a most unusual horde of barbarians. But who stands to gain from the revolution and who is the shadowy figure in the background? Rincewind gets mixed up in this when the revolutionaries (with some prompting from the un named source) request that Ankh Morpork send the Great Wizzard by tea time. A strange concatenation of circumstances mean that the earth rises up and he does, indeed, save the day... again!
