 Adventure Gamers : Discworld
His Discworld novels, now numbering around forty books when you count the tour guide manuals, lampoon the fantasy genre with a vengeance, skewering everything from fairy godmothers, to brainless heroes, to wizards, to Death himself (who rides a horse named Binky).

 DAVE GREENSLADE From The Discworld review by Joolz(Julian Mackrell)
From The Discworld has a far more adventurous and varied orchestration than Pentateuch, an accomplished depiction of a wide range of moods and settings.
DEATH rides across the land on his horse Binky [represented by a spaghetti western style trumpet], dark and menacing yet always ready with a comforting merry quip.
The music of From The Discworld is fine within its limitations, but some of the ideas lack progression, sometimes too short and under-developed.
