The 2023 Pratchat Challenge - hosted by mcbenzie

A book that blurs the line between science and magic
Pratchett has both made fun of the way magic makes no sense from a scientific sense, and written about magic as if it was just a different kind of science.

An obvious suggestion, already popular with Pratchett fans (and one himself), is Ben Aaronovitch’s Rivers of London and sequels, in which British police officer and apprentice wizard Peter Grant learns a tradition of magic established by Isaac Newton. But we’ll have some more suggestions soon!
