Your official Discworld Companion… so far! A comprehensive guide through the characters and concepts of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld, compiled by Stephen Briggs!
The Discworld, as everyone knows, is a flat world balanced on the backs of four elephants which, in turn, stand on the shell of the giant star turtle, the Great A’Tuin, as it slowly swims through space. It is also a global publishing phenomenon with sales of over 70 million books worldwide (but who’s counting?). The Discworld series itself includes 41 books – not including the various guides, mapps, diaries, off-shoots and side-projects – and a cast of over a thousand characters. That’s a lot of Discworld to keep track of! But fear not: help is at hand! If you’re looking for the ultimate authority on probably the most detailed – certainly the most hilarious – setting in fantasy literature then the Discworld Companion is the reference book for you!
If you need a handy guide to Discworld countries and locales from Ankh-Morpork to Zemphis, if you want help telling your watchman from your wizard, your Octirine from your Octavo, your beggars from your thieves, a Watch House from your Seamstresses’ Guild, or if your life depends on being able to distinguish the Agatean Empire from the Zoons, or your Klatchian Coffee from your Peach Conrniche then look no further!
