Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For every Pratchett fan, the must-have, fully updated guidebook to Discworld!

The Discworld, as everyone knows, is a flat world balanced on the backs of four elephants that, 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 about 85 million books worldwide. The publication of Snuff brought the Discworld canon to thirty-nine books—not including the various guides, maps, diaries, and other side projects. That's a lot of Discworld to keep track of—more than most people can manage with just one head—but fear not: help is at hand!

If you're looking for the ultimate authority on probably the most heavily populated—certainly the most hilarious—setting in fantasy literature . . .

If you need a handy guide to Discworld locales from Ankh-Morpork to Zemphis . . .

If you want help telling Achmed the Mad from Jack Zweiblumen . . . If your life depends on being able to distinguish the Agatean Empire from the Zoons . . .

Look no further than Turtle Recall: The Discworld Companion . . . So Far—now fully updated and completely up to Snuff!
