They say there are only two things you can count on …
But that was before DEATH started pondering the existential. Of course, the last thing anyone needs is a squeamish Grim Reaper and soon his Discworld bosses have sent him off with best wishes and a well-earned gold watch. Now DEATH is having the time of his life, finding greener pastures where he can put his scythe to a whole new use.
But like every cutback in an important public service, DEATH's demise soon leads to chaos and unrest — literally, for those whose time was supposed to be up, like Windle Poons. The oldest geezer in the entire faculty of Unseen University — home of magic, wizardry, and big dinners — Windle was looking forward to a wonderful afterlife, not this boring been-there-done-that routine. To get the fresh start he deserves, Windle and the rest of Ankh-Morpork's undead and underemployed set off to find DEATH and save the world for the living (and everybody else, of course).

Quotes

    The Dean started to mutter urgently under his breath, and then screamed.

    ‘I’ve gone blind!’

    ‘Your bonsai bandage has slipped over your eyes, Dean.’

    Windle groaned.

    The wizards ran down the corridor.

    ‘How can you kill ghosts?’

    ‘How should I know? The question doesn’t usually arise!’

    ‘You exorcise them, I think.’

    ‘What? Jumpin’ up and down, runnin’ on the spot, that kind of thing?’

    The Dean had been ready for this. ‘It’s spelled with an “O”, Archchancellor. I don’t think one is expected to subject them to, er, physical exertion.’

    ‘Should think not, man. We don’t want a lot of healthy ghosts buzzin’ around.’

    ‘Hang on, though,’ said the Bursar, who had managed to catch up with events. ‘Why should that worry us? We don’t have anything to fear from the dead, do we? After all, they’re just people who are dead. They’re just ordinary people. People like us.’

    The wizards thought about this. They looked at one another. They started to shout, all at once.
