Surprise twist to the beginning of one of my favorite world series to frolic through! Science behind magic, and who's behind it all? What fun!

The Company builds planets.

Kin Arad is a high-ranking official of the Company. After twenty-one decades of living, and with the help of memory surgery, she is at the top of her profession. Discovering two of her employees have placed a fossilized plesiosaur in the wrong stratum, not to mention the fact it is holding a placard which reads 'End Nuclear Testing Now', doesn't dismay the woman who built a mountain range in the shape of her initials during her own high-spirited youth.

But then come a discovery of something which did intrigue Kin Arad. A flat earth was something new...

Not a discworld novel but a stand alone sci fi work. Not as lunatic as his later work buut well written.
