Sourcery by Terry Pratchett

Sourcery (Discworld, #5)

Sourcery finally gets us back where we belong, with Rincewind running away from something and the pounding of the Luggage's hundreds of feet following relentlessly after. We finally get a reason for wizard celibacy and a inside look at the destructive natural of the magic wielders as well. It's been a while since Rincewind fell off the edge of the Discworld and caught a glimpse of its foundations (elephants and the turtle).

I was glad to get back to him... too bad that meant his life was being turned upside down once again. He had a nice stint there as the Librarian's banana peeler, so he has that to hold on to. Rincewind grows on you like a very tasty fungus.
