The Illustrated Eric is a reissue of Eric, complete with the illustrations that were present in first editions of the book but removed from the paperbacks.


Terry Pratchett's hilarious take on the Faust legend stars many of the Discworld's most popular characters.

Eric is the Discworld's only demonology hacker. The trouble is, he's not very good at it. All he wants is the usual three wishes: to be immortal, rule the world and have the most beautiful woman fall madly in love with him. The usual stuff.

But what he gets is Rincewind, the Disc's most incompetent wizard, and Rincewind's Luggage (the world's most dangerous travel accessory) into the bargain. The outcome is an outrageous adventure that will leave Eric wishing once more - this time, quite fervently - that he'd never been born.


The book was created as a collaborative effort between Terry Pratchett and Josh Kirby who had previously only provided illustrations for the covers of the Discworld books.

The novel features fifteen illustrations by Josh Kirby both on full page spreads and integrated throughout the text. The Illustrated Eric also adds some additional smaller illustrations, created from snippets from the larger pictures.
