Sourcery - Discworld, Bk 5
Author: Terry Pratchett
A sorcerer is born - a wizard so powerful that by comparison all other magic is just mucking around in pointy hats. And his very existence brings the Discworld, which is of course flat and rides through space on the back of an enormous turtle, to the very verge of all-out thaumaturgical war*.

One of the early Discworld novels, featuring Rincewind and the Luggage. Hilarious (as they all are).

#5 in publication order of the Discworld fantasy books, this one again features Rincewind, the Luggage, Librarian, etc. as they speed away from Ankh-Morpork with the Archchancellor's wizard hat. The hat asked to be stolen, you see, to keep young Coin, a true Sorcerer who walked into the Univesity and proclaimed himself Archchancellor, from putting it on. As always, Pratchett's books make me laugh out loud, and also make me read slowly because sometimes one of his puns or jokes won't hit me til several pages later--then I have to go back and read it again to make sure I got it!

Classic, comical Pratchett (before Rincewind got boring).

I loved this, of course. I don't usually enjoy puns, but Pratchett makes me love them in spite of myself! It was really fun to see Rincewind again, and anytime the Librarian is featured, I'll love it. I am a bit concerned about the fate of the Luggage, though.
