9780062292568: Turtle Recall: The Discworld Companion . . . So Far

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 eighty-five 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!

About the Author:

Sir Terry Pratchett, OBE, was the author of more than 70 books, including the internationally bestselling Discworld series of novels. His books have been adapted for stage and screen, and he was the winner of multiple prizes, including the Carnegie Medal. In January 2009, Pratchett was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in recognition of his services to literature. Sir Terry, who lived in England, died in March 2015 at the age of 66.



Stephen Briggs lives in Oxfordshire and has been involved in the world of amateur dramatics for many years. Oxford Studio Theatre Club staged his adaptations of Wyrd Sisters, Mort, Guards! Guards!, and many others. 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 voices the UK and US Discworld audiobooks.

Review:

“...[SNUFF is a] lively outing, complete with sly shout-outs to Jane Austen and gritty police procedurals.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“Brilliantly complex.” (The Straits Times)

“The humor is sharp and the characters are charming, and the plight of the goblins creates moments of genuine pathos that are the highlight of the book.” (Tor.com)

“In short, this is as busy and as daft as any other Discworld yarn, which means it is the quintessence of daft. Nobody writes fantasy funnier than Pratchett.” (Booklist)
