Terry Pratchett, Eric Episode 1 of 4

Adapted by Robin Brooks.

Terry Pratchett's many Discworld novels combine a Technicolor imagination with a razor sharp wit, especially when he rewrites Faust as spotty teenage demonologist Eric.

1/ 4 When precocious young Eric Thursley summons a demon from the loathsome pit to fulfil his every wish, he certainly gets what he asked for. Just... not exactly what he asked for. That's the problem with wishes.
