Interesting Times is Terry Pratchett's take on China, which here he calls the Agatean Empire, with its capital at HungHung. At first I was taken aback because much of the action involved my least favorite Diskcworld characters, the undynamic Rincewind and Cohen the Barbarian. (I have always felt that Pratchett is more comfortable with the stews of Ankh-Morpork than in the outlying lands such as Klatch, Lancre, XXXX, Ephebe, and Howandaland.) But fortunately, the story picked up ... because Pratchett is nothing if not inventive. Look for Lord Hong, the Agatean Grand Vizier, one of the silkiest villains in all of literature (but then Grand Viziers usually are, no?).
