Turtle Recall

The Discworld Companion ... So Far

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 publication of SNUFF brought the Discworld canon to 39 books - not including the various guides, mapps, diaries and other side-projects. That´s a lot of Discworld to keep track of - more than most people can manage with just the 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 THE COMPLETE DISCWORLD COMPANION - now fully updated and completely up to SNUFF!

Portrait

Sir Terry Pratchett is a publishing phenomenon. Among his many prizes and citations are the WORLD FANTASY LIFE ACHIEVEMENT AWARD, the CARNEGIE MEDAL, the BSFA AWARD, eight honorary doctorates and, of course, a knighthood. He is the author of 50 bestselling books but is best known for the globally renowned Discworld series.
The first Discworld novel, THE COLOUR OF MAGIC, was published in 1983, and the series is still going strong almost three decades later. Four Discworld novels - HOGFATHER, GOING POSTAL, THE COLOUR OF MAGIC and THE LIGHT FANTASTIC - have been adapted for television, with more to follow. His books have sold more than 70 million copies worldwide, and been translated into 37 languages. Terry Pratchett lives near Salisbury in Wiltshire.

Stephen Briggs lives in Oxfordshire and has been involved for many years in the sinister world of amateur dramatics, which is how he came to discover the Discworld. Having read one book, he was hooked and read the entire canon over the next three weeks. Oxford´s Studio Theatre Club went on to stage his adaptations of WYRD SISTERS, MORT, GUARDS! GUARDS!...and many, many more. As well as compiling THE DISCWORLD COMPANION, THE NEW DISCWORLD COMPANION and, now, TURTLE RECALL: THE DISCWORLD COMPANION ... SO FAR, he has also co-authored the Discworld Diaries, the Mapps and has dramatised most of the Discworld novels. Stephen also now voices the UK and US Discworld audio books.
