Terry Pratchett and

- The Discworld Companion

Stephen Briggs

 The Discworld is an upredictable place, what with rivers you can skateboard across (if they weren't so knobbly), rocks that tend to stroll about of an evening and points of raw magic that can turn a body inside out as soon as look at it. For safety's sake, you need a guide.

     Terry Pratchett and Stephen Briggs, respectively chronicler and cartographer, have produced just that - the one and only definitive guide to the flat planet that floats through space on the back of four elephants standing on a turtle.

     So, if you're one of those really adventurous armchair travellers, and you need to know, sat, where to get a curry in Ankh-Morpork*, or indeed, anything else about the Discworld then this is the book for you.

Happy Holidays!

Additional Notes/ My Opinion It is an absolutely massive book, which is not meant to be read from cover to cover, but referred to. It is superb and you can look up virtually anything you can think of which is Discworld related, from Death to Hargas House of Ribs. No matter where you are in the series, as long as you are a committed reader, this is a must buy. The bad point is that it is likely to get updated often and you may get left with an old copy when you move onto the later books.
