Tell That to Noah Bennett...

there's not much heroing in wholesale stationery

So says Cohen the Barbarian, leader of a group of septuagenarian heroes attempting to storm the city of the gods in Terry Pratchett's The Last Hero. Saw this at the library. It's a short novel, profusely illustrated by Paul Kidby. The heroes are planning on giving fire back to the gods, in the form of a very large explosive device. Only problem with that is the explosion will likely destroy the rest of the Discworld as well, so a team is sent to stop them in a spacecraft powered by swamp dragons. Things get a little weird after that, but it's a fun ride.
