Two literary giants. One Book. Multiple Worlds.

Sir Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter discuss their new series of novels entitled The Long Earth.

Spurred on by Roger Highfield and the physics of David Wallace, the renowned authors reveal how their work has been inspired by the many-worlds interpretation of quantum theory.

Find out how the pair collaborated on The Long Earth, what lies in store for the next instalment in the series and what inspires them to write science fiction and fantasy.

As Sir Terry himself states:

"Science fiction is like an exercise bike for the mind: it doesn't take you anywhere but it tunes up the muscles that might"
