Making Money
The Ankh Morpork Post Office is running likewell, not at all like a government office The mail is delivered promptly meetings start and end on time five out of six letters relegated to the Blind Letter Office ultimately wend their way to the correct addresses Postmaster General Moist von Lipwig, former arch swindler and confidence man, has exceeded all expectations The Ankh Morpork Post Office is running likewell, not at all like a government office The mail is delivered promptly meetings start and end on time five out of six letters relegated to the Blind Letter Office ultimately wend their way to the correct addresses Postmaster General Moist von Lipwig, former arch swindler and confidence man, has exceeded all expectations including his own So it s somewhat disconcerting when Lord Vetinari summons Moist to the palace and asks, Tell me, Mr Lipwig, would you like to make some real money

Vetinari isn t talking about wages, of course He s referring, rather, to the Royal Mint of Ankh Morpork, a venerable institution that has run for centuries on the hereditary employment of the Men of the Sheds and their loyal outworkers, who do make money in their spare time Unfortunately, it costs than a penny to make a penny, so the whole process seems somewhat counter intuitive.

Next door, at the Royal Bank, the Glooper, an analogy machine, has scientifically established that one never has quite as much money at the end of the week as one thinks one should, and the bank s chairman, one elderly Topsy nee Turvy Lavish, keeps two loaded crossbows at her desk Oh, and the chief clerk is probably a vampire.

But before Moist has time to fully consider Vetinari s question, fate answers it for him Now he s not only making money, but enemies too he s got to spring a prisoner from jail, break into his own bank vault, stop the new manager from licking his face, and, above all, find out where all the gold has gone otherwise, his life in banking, while very exciting, is going to be really, really short
