Terry Pratchett

I’ve been reading Terry Pratchett and enjoying it very much. So far I’ve finished three books from the watch series, set in discworld.
The series so far is very much centered on the actions of three principled actors, Vetinari the pragmatic non-interventionist dictator, Carrot the charismatic idealist, and Vimes, who is the protagonist. This setup reminds me of Stephen Fry’s commentary on star trek, where the pragmatic Spok and the idealist McCoy compete to influence Captain Kirk’s decisions.
The overall idealistic bent is somewhat libertarian, in my view, which probably accounts for why I am enjoying it so much.
