Note on Publishers, ISBNs, and book formats at end of this bibliography;
but briefly, "p/b" indicates a uk paperback, "mmp/b" a merkin (us) mass
market paperback edition, whilst "h/cvr" signifies a hardcover edition.

%A = author %T = title %I = imprint %D = date of publication

Note on cover artists.

Josh Kirby is the single artist most popularly associated with Terry's
books, though he was not in fact the first artist to produce cover art
for his work - Terry himself did that - nor even that of the very first
Discworld novel, _The Colour of Magic_; but he was Transworld's choice
for cover artist for the first p/b of this, and has graced - or disgraced
() the covers of the uk editions of the Discworld books ever since -
with one exception: Transworld tested a "serious" cover on a printing of
_The Colour of Magic_ in an apparent attempt to broaden the sales appeal
to encompass sad people hitherto put off what some have described as lit-
erature, by visibly non-serious cover art. the attempt was not entirely
successful, and has not been repeated - or even reprinted.

the (merkin) mmp/bs from New American Library (later Penguin USA) Signet
/Roc have featured cover artwork by Darrell K. Sweet that most, but not
all, who have compared with Josh Kirby's, concur to be less in sympathy
with the feel of the Discworld (though by no means necessarily less true
to the descriptions of the characters in Terry's text; rather, the reverse).
apparently the Signet/Roc mmp/bs of _The Light Fantastic_, _Equal Rights_,
& _Mort_ use josh kirby's artwork. [these not seen by myself; but i suspect,
this being so, the cover art of _The Colour of Magic_ does, too.(ppint.)]

later merkin h/cvr editions published by HarperCollins have altogether
more "serious" cover art: designs deemed to be symbolic of the novels,
rather than illustrative of them, by Michael Sabanosh, & Carl D.Galian.
--------------------------------------- 1. The Discworld Series

Without a doubt, the most popular series of books that Terry Pratchett
has written.

1st edition h/cvr blurb (thank-you for the d-j, colin smythe :-) ):

Terry Pratchett has invented a phantasmagorical universe in
which a blissfully naive interplanetary tourist called Two-
flower joins up with a drop-out wizard whose spells only seem
to work half of the time. Together they undertake a chaotic
voyage through a crazy world filled with monsters and dragons,
heroes and knaves. Pratchett has taken the sword and sorcery
fantasy tradition and turned it in its ear to create an enter-
taining and bizarre spoof.
h/cvr blurb (of the 1995 printing):

Since the publication of _The Colour of Magic_ in 1983, Terry
Pratchett's Discworld series (described by the _Guardian_ as
`a sequence of unalloyed delight') now has seventeen bestselling
titles currently in print, every one of which has received rapt-
urous reviews. As the American _Publisher's Weekly_ wrote, in
this first volume of the series Rincewind, an inept wizard, takes
on the job of `shepherding a naive actuary, Twoflower, his world's
first tourist, through a series of increasingly hazardous and out-
rageous adventures. Assisting Rincewind's rather inconsistent pow-
ers in protecting Twoflower is the Luggage, a sentient trunk that
follows him through all manner of adversity on its hundreds of
little legs. Heroic barbarians, chthonic monsters, beautiful prin-
cesses and fiery dragons; they're all here, but none of them is
doing business as usual.'
p/b blurb:

Jerome K. Jerome meets _Lord of the Rings_ (with a touch of _Peter
Pan_)...[this first part omitted from the 1994 re-set p/b edition]

On a world supported on the back of a giant turtle (sex unknown),
a gleeful, explosive, wickedly eccentric expedition sets out.

There's an avaricious but inept wizard, a naive tourist whose
luggage moves on hundreds of dear little legs, dragons who only
exist if you believe in them, and of course THE EDGE of the
planet...

The wackiest and most original fantasy since _Hitchhikers Guide
to the Galaxy_.

h/cvr blurb:

In _The Colour of Magic_, the singularly inept and cowardly wiz-
ard Rincewind, Twoflower, the Discworld's first tourist, and his
remarkable Luggage, were last seen falling off its edge, with no
help in sight.
In this sequel, the Discworld is moving towards a seemingly in-
evitable collision with a malevolent red star, and it has only
one possible saviour. Unfortunately this happens to be Rincewind. . .
p/b blurb:

As it moves towards a seemingly inevitable collision with a mal-
evolent red star, the Discworld has only one possible saviour.
Unfortunately, this happens to be the singularly inept and coward
-ly wizard called Rincewind, who was last seen falling off the
edge of the world ....
The funniest and most unorthodox fantasy in this or any other galaxy.

(n.y.k.)


h/cvr blurb:

Plodding through the eternal void is the great turtle A'Tuin. On
his back (or hers - the question is unresolved) stand four eleph-
ants. And supported on the elephants' shoulders is. . . Discworld,
planet of magic and misadventure!

Predicting his own death, the wizard Drum Billet sets out to pass
on his power and his staff to his predicted successor, the eighth
son of an eighth son. But there is a problem. The eighth son turns
out to be a daughter, and women aren't supposed to be wizards.
(`Where does it say women can't be wizards?' `It doesn't say it
anywhere, it says it everywhere.') But it's too late: Eskarina in-
herits the wizard's staff, and with the reluctant help of the witch
Granny Weatherwax sets out to learn her new calling.
p/b blurb:

The last thing the wizard Drum Billet did, before Death laid a bony
hand on his shoulder, was to pass on his staff of power to the eighth
son of an eighth son. Unfortunately for his colleagues in the chauv-
inistic (not to say mysogynistic) world of magic, he failed to check
on the new-born baby's sex ...
A third hilarious adventure by the author of _The Colour of Magic_
and _The Light Fantastic_.

(n.y.k.) %I Isis [large-print h/cvr edn] %D (not yet known) ISBN 1-85089-044-7
h/cvr blurb:

In _Mort_, Terry Pratchett returns to `Discworld', the setting
for his popular series of comic fantasy novels, _The Colour of
Magic_, _The Light Fantastic_, and _Equal Rites_.

Mort is an unpromising, gangling teenager who becomes as apprent-
ice to Death, but proves less than gifted at his new task of ush-
ering souls out of the world. In fact, when it comes to the rath-
er attractive Princess Keli (due to be assassinated) Mort fluffs
it completely. He kills the assassin instead, thus interfering
with the implacable workings of Fate. But reality isn't changed
so easily; history as it should have been begins to take shape
around Keli's city-state of Sto Lat. Can Mort save Keli before
she is squeezed out of existence?

Death, having delegated much of his work to Mort, is displaying
disturbingly human characteristics: drinking, dice-playing and
becoming curious about the nature of fun. Mort, meanwhile, is
becoming much less cheery and showing a worrying tendency to
SPEAK IN HOLLOW CAPITALS...
p/b blurb:

Death comes to us all. When he came to Mort, he offered him a job.

After being assured that being dead was not compulsory, Mort accept-
ed. However, he soon found that romantic longings did not mix eas-
ily with the responsibilities of being Death's apprentice...

--------------------------------------- 1.5 Sourcery
%A Terry Pratchett %T Sourcery %I Victor Gollancz (h/cvr) "in association with Colin Smythe" %D 5/88 [this edition now out of print] ISBN 0-575-04217-6 %I Corgi (p/b) %D 5/89 ISBN 0-552-13107-5 %I Signet (mmp/b) %D 12/89 [this edition now out of print] ISBN 0-451-16233-1 %I Corgi (two-cassette audio/b; abr.) %D 1994 ISBN 0-552-14011-2 %I Isis (six-cassette audio/b) %D 1995 ISBN 1-85695-862-0 %I Victor Gollancz (h/cvr) [larger format; letterbox design d-j] %D 11/96 ISBN 0-575-06409-9 %I Roc (mmp/b) %D 8/98 ISBN 0-451-.....-. (n.y.k.)
h/cvr blurb:

A sourcerer is born - a wizard so powerful that by comparison all
other magic is just mucking around in pointy hats.
And his very existence brings the Discworld, which is of course
flat and rides through space on the back of an enormous turtle, to
the very verge of all-out thaumaturgical war*.
All that stands in the way is Rincewind, the failed magician, who
wants to save the world, or at least that part of it which contains
him. More new characters join the Discworld adventure: Conina the
barbarian hairdresser, Nijel the Destroyer (whose mother still makes
him wear woolly underwear) and possibly the first yuppie genie, who's
into lamps as a growth area.
This time the adventure goes east, or hubwards, or whatever. It
doesn't simply draw heavily on _Omar Khayyam_, _Raiders of the Lost
Ark_, the _1001 Nights_ and every Arabian B-movie ever made, it
scribbles on them as well. . .

* A bad thing

p/b blurb:

There was an eighth son of an eighth son. He was, quite naturally,
a wizard. And there it should have ended. However (for reasons we'd
better not go into), he had seven sons. And then he had an eighth
son ... a wizard squared ... a source of magic ... a Sourcerer.

--------------------------------------- 1.6 Wyrd Sisters

h/cvr blurb:

Kingdoms wobble, crowns topple and knives flash on the magical
Discworld as the statutory three witches meddle in royal politics.
But Granny Weatherwax (of _Equal Rites_) and her fellow coven
members find it's all a lot more difficult than playwrights would
have you believe. . .
Everything you'd expect is here - hunchbacked kings, lost crowns
and disguised heirs. And they are joined by things you haven't
heard of yet, like a stage-struck thunderstorm and the first record-
ed instance of the in-flight refuelling of a broomstick. Through it
all the wyrd sisters ("This cauldron's got all _yuk_ in it!") battle
against frightful odds to put the rightful king on the throne.
At least, that's what they think. . .
_Wyrd Sisters_ is the sixth of Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels,
which are now well-established as the funniest fantasy series ever -
and among the funniest novels of any kind currently being published.
p/b blurb:

Witches are not by their nature gregarious, and they certainly don't
have leaders. Granny Weatherwax was the most highly-regarded of the
leaders they didn't have. But even *she* found that meddling in royal
politics was a lot more difficult than certain playwrights would have
you believe ...

(n.y.k.)
h/cvr blurb:

It isn't easy, being a teenage pharoah. You're not allowed to carry
money, uninhibited young women peel your grapes for you, everyone
thinks you're responsible for making the sun rise and the corn grow,
you keep dreaming about seven thin cows and seven fat cows* and, on
top of everything else, the Great Pyramid has just exploded because
of paracosmic instability.

And then you've got to deal with all these assassins, sphinxes, huge
wooden horses, mad high priests, philosophers, sacred crocodiles,
gods, marching mummies, jobbing pyramid builders and Hat, the Vult-
ure-Headed God of Unexpected Guests.

And all you _really_ wanted was the chance to do something for young
people and the inner cities.

Definitely the funniest Discworld book since the last one.

*One of them playing a trombone.
p/b blurb:

Being trained by the Assassin's Guild in Ankh-Morpork did not fit
Teppic for the task assigned to him by fate. He inherited the throne
of the desert kingdom of Djelibeybi rather earlier than he expected
(his father wasn't too happy about it either), but that was only the
beginning of his problems ...

h/cvr blurb:

_`Of all the cities in the world it could have flown into, it flew
into mine. . .'_

Some night-time prowler is turning the citizens of Ankh-Morpork,
greatest city of the fantasy Discworld*, into something resembling
small charcoal biscuits.

And that's a real problem for Captain Vimes of the City Watch, who
must tramp the mean streets of the city searching for a seventy-
foot-long fire-breathing dragon which, he believes, can help him
with their enquiries.

In a city thrown into turmoil by magic, charcoal biscuits, secret
societies and mad lady dragon breeders (`Just tell him _sit_ if he's
bothering you'), he's just looking for the facts.

* Which is flat and rides through space on the back of four elephants
who stand on the shell of an enormous turtle, as every scholar knows.

p/b blurb:

This is where the dragons went. They lie... not dead, not asleep,
but... dormant. And although the space they occupy isn't like normal
space, nevertheless they are packed in tightly. They could put you
in mind of a can of sardines, if you thought sardines were huge and
scaly. And presumably, somewhere, there's a key ...

GUARDS! GUARDS! IS THE EIGHTH DISCWORLD NOVEL - AND AFTER THIS,
DRAGONS WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN!

h/cvr (& vlf p/b back cover) blurb:

You've heard of Faust...

This is Eric.

There's a difference.

Eric is fourteen, lives on the famed and magical Discworld, and is
the first ever demonology hacker. Fortunately, he doesn't succeed
in raising any devils, but he does raise Rincewind (the most incom-
petent wizard in the universe) and the Luggage (the world's most
dangerous travel accessory).

When Eric turns them loose on an unprotected world, the idea is that
Rincewind will grant him his three rather adolescent wishes.

You know. The usual three. Live forever, rule the world, meet the
most beautiful woman who ever lived. Simple, really...

Getting marooned at the dawn of Time, changing the future and meet-
ing history's most embarrassing god is only the start. Creating life
on the Discworld is a mere detail.

Because Rincewind ends up going through Hell.

Literally.

It'll never be the same again.
a format p/b blurb:

Eric is the Discworld's only demonology hacker.

Pity he's not very good at it.

All he wants is three wishes granted. Nothing fancy - to be imm-
ortal, rule the world, have the most beautiful woman in the world
fall madly in love with him, the usual stuff.

But instead of a tractable demon, he calls up Rincewind, probably
the most incompetent wizard in the universe, and the extremely
_intractable_ and hostile form of travel accessory known as the
Luggage.

With them on his side, Eric's in for a ride through space and time
that is bound to make him wish (quite fervently) again - this time
that he'd never been born.

Death is missing - presumed ... er ... gone.

Which leads to the kind of chaos you _always_ get when an import-
ant public service is withdrawn.

Ghosts and poltergeists fill up the Discworld. Dead Rights act-
ivist Reg Shoe - `You Don't Have to Take This Lying Down' - sud-
denly has more work than he had ever dreamed of. And newly de-
ceased wizard Windle Poons wakes up in his coffin to find that he
has come back as a corpse.

But it's up to Windle and the members of Ankh-Morpork's rather
unfrightening group of undead (*) to save the world for the
living.

Meanwhile, on a little farm far, far away, a tall, dark stranger
is turning out to be really good with a scythe. There's a harvest
to be got in. And a different battle to be fought.

(*) Arthur Winkings, for example, became a vampire after being
bitten by a lawyer. Schleppel the bogeyman would be better at
his job if he wasn't agoraphobic and frightened of coming out of
the closet. And Mr Ixolite is a banshee with a speech impedim-
ent, so instead of standing on the roof and screaming when
there's a death in the house he writes `OooEeeOooEeeOoo' on a
piece of paper and pushes it under the door.

He wants to stop the persecution of a philosopher who has dared
to suggest that, contrary to the Church's dogma, the Discworld
really _does_ go through space on the back of an enormous

He wants peace and justice and brotherly love.

He wants the Inquisition to stop torturing him now, please.

is for his god to Choose Someone Else ...

Omnibus collecting Equal Rites, Wyrd Sisters, Witches Abroad.

Witches are not by nature gregarious and they certainly don't
have leaders.

Granny Weatherwax was the most highly regarded of the leaders
they didn't have...

Here are three novels featuring one of Terry Pratchett's most
celebrated characters, along with her sidekicks, the fertile
Nanny Ogg and the New Age's favourite witch, Magrat Garlick:

EQUAL RITES

Women aren't supposed to be wizards - but nobody told Eskarina,
the eighth daughter of an eighth son, when she inherited her
father's [sic] staff, and with Granny Weatherwax's reluctant
help she sets out to learn her new calling.

WYRD SISTERS

In which Granny discovers that meddling in royal politics is a
_lot_ more difficult than certain playwrights would have you
believe.

WITCHES ABROAD

The funniest Grand Tour anywhere, as Granny, Nanny and Magrat
travel to distant Genua - to make sure a servant girl _doesn't_
marry the prince.

h/cvr blurb:

A weather cock has risen from the sea of Discworld, and suddenly
you can tell which way the wind is blowing.

A new land has surfaced, and so have old feuds.

And as two armies march, Commander Vimes of Ankh-Morpork City Watch
has got just a few hours to deal with a crime so big that there's
no law against it. It's called `war'.

He's facing unpleasant foes who are out to get him... that's just
the people on _his_ side. The enemy might be even worse. And his
pocket Dis-organiser says he's got _Die_ under `Things To Do Today'.

But he'd better not, because the world's cleverest inventor and its
most devious politician are on their way to the battlefield with a
little package that's _guaranteed_ to stop a battle...

Discworld goes to war, with armies of sardines, warriors, fishermen,
squid and at least one very camp follower.

This is the Discworld's last continent, a completely separate

It's hot. It's dry . . . very dry. There was this thing once
called The Wet, which no one now believes in. Practically
everything that's not poisonous is venemous. But it's the best
bloody place in the world, all right?

And it'll die in a few days, except . . .

Who is this hero striding across the red desert? Champion sheep
shearer, horse rider, road warrior, beer drinker, bush ranger
and someone who'll even eat a Meat Pie Floater when he's _sober?_
A man in a hat, whose Luggage follows him around on little legs,
who's about to change history by preventing a swagman stealing
a jumbuck by a billabong?

Yes . . . all this place has between itself and wind-blown doom
is Rincewind, the inept wizard who can't even _spell_ wizard.
He's the only hero left.

Omnibus collecting Mort, Reaper Man and Soul Music.

Introducing the Discworld's most popular character - the fellow
with the white horse and the ultimate weight-loss programme . . .
DEATH

Here are three novels featuring Terry Pratchett's most celebrated
denizen of the Discworld, together with the usual motley cast, in-
cluding Death's granddaughter Susan, Binky and the Death of Rats.

MORT
Death, having delegated most of his duties to his new apprentice,
the uncompromising, gangling teenager Mort, is showing disturbing-
ly human characteristics: drinking, dice-playing and becoming cur-
ious about the nature of Fun . . .

REAPER MAN
Death is missing, presumed . . . er . . . gone. Which leads to the
kind of chaos you always get when an important public service is
withdrawn.

SOUL MUSIC
It's hard to grow up normally when grandfather rides a white horse
and wields a scythe - especially when you have to take over the fam-
ily business and everyone keeps mistaking you for the Tooth Fairy.
But Susan must face the new music that has entered the Discworld:
it's lawless, it changes people . . . it's called Music With Rocks
In. And it won't fade away . . .

Mightily Oats has not picked a good time to be a priest. He thought
he'd come to the mountain kingdom of Lancre for a simple little
religious ceremony. Now he's caught up in a war between vampires
and witches, and he's not sure there _is_ a right side.
There're the witches - young Agnes, who is _really_ in two minds
about everything, Magrat, who is trying to combine witchcraft and
nappies, Nanny Ogg, who is far too knowing... and Granny Weatherwax,
who is big trouble.
And the vampires are _intelligent_ - not easily got rid of with a
garlic enema or bu going to the window, grasping the curtains and
saying, "I don't know about you, but isn't it a bit stuffy in here?"
They've got style and fancy waistcoats.
They're out of the casket and want a bite of the future.
Mightily Oats knows he has a prayer, but wishes he had an axe.

This is how the Discworld began...
In _The Colour of Magic_ the failed wizard Rincewind burst
upon the world and hasn't stopped running since.
This was the book that started the phenomenally successful
series. Here is the sapient pearwood luggage, a mobile trunk
which launders any clothes put it in [sic] and incidentally
homicidally defends its owner. Here is Twoflower, an innocent
tourist in a world of nightmares and fairy tales gone wrong.
Here is Cohen the Barbarian, the world's oldest and greatest
hero. Here is Death, not such a bad sort when you get to know
him...
They have adventures. It'd take too long to explain. Just
read it!

terry has, more than once, said he feels he may slow down,
or take a holiday from the discworld - and equally often
discovered that there was another discworld story that in-
sisted on being told, or another story that proved to be
as well-suited to being set therein; and, that he has no
intention of writing "the last discworld novel", other than
in the sense that he himself is mortal and that he will not
permit his creation to be franchised or otherwise given the
artificial semblence of life thereafter, by any other hand.

i, for one, will eagerly pounce upon any novel i find with
his byline, whatever the world in which it is set, having
greatly enjoyed all that he's had published, and not just
the nowadays best-selling discworld novels: see below, for
quite how much more than two dozen such, are available.

These books are Terry's earlier efforts, and came before the success of "The Colour of Magic"; though The Carpet People was re-written later.

%A Terry Pratchett %T The Carpet People %I Colin Smythe (h/cvr) %D 11/71 [this edition now out of print] ISBN 0-900675-49-7

Price : ukL 1.90 [1.90 GBP] Hardback 17cm x 22cm, 195 pages
33 B&W illustrations by _the author_; a few copies hand-coloured
by him. Cover shows various creatures licking a large white cube.
h/cvr blurb:

The is magic in every carpet. Cities and villages exist right under
your feet and the people who live in them are so small that each
tuft of wool stretches high above them like giant trees. A grain
of sugar which has somehow found its way into the world of the
carpet people, becomes a favourite mountain for the carpet animals
where they go as often as possible. Dust plants make up a wonderful
vegetation, and the world of the carpet people is as real to them
as the earth is to us.

But there are also creatures who live in the underlay; they appear
to be allies of that terrible and powerful Fray who lives above the
carpet. Whenever he passes above, he leaves destruction behind him
in the world of the carpet people, and the creatures of the underlay
try to take advantage of them.

This is the story of Snibril and Glurk, the leaders of the carpet
people and how they finally defeat the servants of Fray. It is full
of magic battles and the day to day struggle of the brave and
ingenious carpet people.

Children of all ages, from 5 to 50 will enjoy this book, and the
world of the Carpet People in the reader's own home will add a new
dimension to his imagination.

h/cvr blurb:



In the beginning, there was nothing but endless flatness.
Then came the Carpet...



That's the old story everyone knows and loves (even if they
don't really _believe_ it). For now the Carpet is home for
many different tribes and peoples - from the empire-building
Dumii, to the nomadic Munrungs, the proud Deftmenes, and the
terrible creatures from the Unswept Regions. And there's a
new story in the making.

The story of the time when Fray begins to move, sweeping a
trail of destruction across the Carpet.

The story of the power-hungry mouls, saddling up their snargs
and riding to the attack.

The story of Glurk and Snibril, Munrung brothers, who set out
on an adventure to end all adventures when their village is
flattened.

The story that will come to a terrible end - if someone
doesn't do something about it. If _everyone_ doesn't do
something about it...

h/cvr blurb:

_Probability Math:_ the science of foretelling the future. For
Dom Sabalos, heir to an immensely rich family, its forecasts
were curiously contradictory: he would be assassinated, and
_after_ that, find the fabulous, almost mythical, world of the
Jokers, who were only known by a few incredible artifacts
scattered throughout the Galaxy.

Any good P-Mathematician could find out this information. Some-
body certainly wanted to prove P-Math wrong as far as Dom was
concerned, and make sure that once he was dead, he stayed dead. A
robot assassin, with built-in `luck', had been put on his tail,
but what was it that protected Dom every time the assassin
struck?

To be sure, he had an excellent robot servant, Isaac; (class 5
with Man-Friday subcircuitry). a planet (the First Syrian Bank)
as a god-father, a determined and protective grandmother (who
looked as if she had been born aged eighty), a security chief who
even ran checks on himself, and a home world, where a missing
hand was only a minor mishap and even death was not always fatal
- but what protected Dom on his search for the world which he
knew lay on the dark side of the sun:?
p/b blurb:

Dom Salabos had a lot of advantages.

servant (with Man-Friday subcircuity), a planet (the First

not always fatal.
Why then, in an age when prediction was a science, was his
future in doubt?

visor in charge of resurfacing the newly named planet, Kingdom.
When she finds Jago Jalo, a man who has a cloak of invisibility
and should have died a thousand years ago, in her office, she de-
cides he must have an unusual tale. He has. He knows where such a
world is. It is like the medieval earth . . . almost. Leiv Eriks-
son is setting off for the New World, but he will never find it.
Instead he sails to the edge of the world and its eternal water-
fall.

`Yes? Yes?' `With, you know, things in it -'

...yes, _lots_ of things, and all of them a mystery to the thou-
sands of tiny nomes living under the floorboards of a large dep-
artment store, most of whom have never even set eyes upon the

But soon a devestating piece of news is to shatter the nomes' ex-
istence: the Store - their world - is to be demolished...

So it's up to Masklin, the last nome to come into the Store, to
mastermind the unbelievable escape plan that will take all the
nomes into the dangers of the great Outside.

It means they have to think. And they have to think BIG.

And they start to learn who they are and how they came to be
there, and where their fantastic journey must one day take them.

`In the beginning...Arnold Bros (est. 1905) created the Store.'

When their home, a large department store, was demolished, thou-
sands of tiny nomes made a daring and dramatic escape on a stolen
lorry - and only just in the nick of time. The abandoned quarry
they found was perfect for their needs.

At last they are safe. Or are they?

Soon strange things start to happen. Like the tops of puddles
growing hard and cold, and the water coming down from the sky
in frozen bits. Worse is to come though. The quarry is to be
re-opened - their new home is under threat.

A newspaper cutting sends three brave nomes off on a desperate
mission which, if it succeeds, could lead them all to their ult-
imate home...

Meanwhile, back at the quarry, the remaining nomes prepare to
defend their home against the intruders. But how long will they
be able to keep the humans at bay - even _with_ the help of the
monster Jekub?

`And Grimma said, We have two choices. We can run, or we hide.

A Bright New Dawn is just around the corner for thousands of
tiny nomes when they move into the ruined buildings of an
abandoned quarry. Or is it?

Soon strange things start to happen. Like the tops of puddles

everything up. The quarry is to be re-opened and the nomes

waiting to take the nomes home - back to wherever they came
from. With their home in a quarry under threat, one nome -
Masklin - knows that they've got to find a way of contacting
this ship.

It means going to Florida (wherever that is), then getting to
the launch of a communications satellite (whatever _that_ is).
A ridiculous plan. Impossible. But Masklin doesn't know this
so he tries to do it anyway. And the first step is to try and
hitch a ride on a new kind of truck, a truck with wings -

He doesn't want to cause any trouble. He only wants to steal
one of those space shuttle things. But when you're only four
inches high in a world full of humans, things have a nasty
habit of getting rather complicated...

h/cvr blurb:

The mighty alien fleet from the very latest computer game
thunders across the computer screen...

Hands poised on the joystick, Johnny prepares to blow them
into the usual million pieces...

And they send him a message: _WE SURRENDER._

They're not supposed to do that! Where does it say in the
manual that they're supposed to do that?

But they've done it. This time they don't want to die. They
just want to go home.

Johnny is the only human who knows. So he has to learn how to
wage all-out Peace, and they don't make joysticks with a
`Don't Fire' button...

It's hard, trying to Save Mankind from the Galactic Hordes.
It's even harder trying to save the Galactic Hordes from
Mankind. But it's only a game, isn't it.

_ISN'T IT?_

h/cvr blurb:

`Call any time you like,' said the Alderman. `I'm always in.
That's something you learn to be good at, when you're dead...'

Not many people can see the dead (not many would want to).
But twelve-year-old Johnny Maxwell can. And the dead are
nothing like he expected. They don't lurch about. They don't
push through walls. They can't even _dance_ like they do in
videos. They're just people - post-senior citizens - and
they're always in.

At least, up until now. Now the council want to move them out
so the cemetery can be sold as a building site. But the dead
have learned a thing or two from Johnny. They're not going to
take it lying down... especially since it's Halloween tomorrow.

Besides, they're beginning to find that life is a lot more fun
than it was when they were... well... alive. Especially if they
break a few rules...

h/cvr blurb:

THERE WAS A FLASH OF LIGHT, THE AIR FLICKERED... AND THE WORLD
CHANGED. IT'S MAY 21, 1941, THOUGHT JOHNNY. IT'S WAR.

Mrs Tachyon the bag-lady is not the sort of person you'd normally
_choose_ to hang out with. But when Johnny Maxwell and his friends
find her semi-conscious in an alley, they have to do _something_...
as long it it's not the kiss of life.

The more time Johnny spends with her, the more he finds that Mrs
Tachyon isn't the ranting old nutter everyone thinks she is.
She seems to hold the key to different times, different eras -
including the Blackbury Blitz in 1941. Suddenly _now_ isn't the
safe place Johnny once though it was, as he finds himself bound
up more and more with _then_. And, as time shifts beneath him,
and the shopping mall and TV arials melt into air-raid sirens and
ration books, Johnny wonders just how much changing the past can
really change the future...

This time-stoppingly funny, richly entertaining new adventure from
the master of fantastical and irreverent wit, Terry Pratchett, is
the third in the series about Johnny Maxwell, following _Only You
Can Save Mankind_ and _Johnny and the Dead_.
p/b blurb:

Johnny Maxwell and his friends have to do _something_ when they

as long it it's not the kiss of life.

But there's more to Mrs Tachyon than a squeaky trolley and a bunch
of dubious black bags. Somehow she holds the key to different times,
different eras - including the Blackbury Blitz in 1941. Suddenly now
isn't the safe place Johnny once though it was, as he finds himself
bound up more and more with then...

so far as the transworld rep. is aware.]

This section details those books that Terry has written with other
authors. See also 7a. the "Discworld Non-Fiction & Art Books" section.
The revised edition of _The Carpet People_ arguably belongs amongst
"Collaborations" - but as the first, original edition is in the "Pre-
Discworld" section, the revised is also listed there [see 2.2].

h/cvr blurb:

According to the Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter -
the world's only _totally reliable_ guide to the future - the
world will end on a Saturday.
Next Saturday, in fact.
Just after tea.
Which means that Armageddon will happen on a Saturday night.
There will be seas of fire, rains of fish, the moon turning to
blood and the massed armies of Heaven and Hell will sort it out
once and for all.
Which is a major problem for Crowley, Hell's most approachable
demon and former serpent, and his opposite number and old friend
Aziraphale, genuine angel and Soho bookshop owner. They _like_ it
down here (or, in Crowley's case, _up_ here).
So they've got no alternative but to stop the Four Motorcyclists
of the Apocalypse, defeat the marching ranks of the Witchfinder's
army* and - somehow - stop it all happening.
Above all (or, in Aziraphale's case, _below_ all) they need to
find and kill the Antichrist, currently the most powerful creature
on Earth.
This is a shame.
Because he's eleven years old, loves his dog even though it's real-
ly a Satanic hellhound under all that hair, really cares about the
environment and is the sort of boy anyone would be proud to have as
a son. He's also totally invulnerable, and a nice kid.
And if that isn't enough, they've still got Sunday to deal with. . .

* All two of them.

first edition p/b blurb:

Can you recognise a real, unadulterated cat when you see one?
Or have you too grown used to the boring, mass-produced cats
the advertising industry adores?

Real cats never eat from bowls (at least not the ones marked
CAT).

Real cats never wear flea collars . . . or appear on birthday
cards . . . or chase anything with a bell in it.

Real cats do eat quiche. And giblets. And butter. And anything
else left on the table. They can hear a fridge door opening two
rooms away.

Real cats don't need names. But they often get called them.

"Yaargeroffoutofityarbastard" does nicely.

of the main points discussed by ian stewart & jack cohen, but it is, in

Blurb:
Being Death's apprentice is a good job. Board and lodging, free
use of company horse, and you don't even need time off for your
grandmother's funeral. Looking like a skeleton is not compulsory,
either.

And you meet lots of interesting people. Although, of course, not
for very long.

All in all, it's a job for life.

Well, nearly. It would have been if Mort had remembered that he
wasn't supposed to rescue princesses. After that it all began to
go dead wrong.

Blurb:
Terry Pratchett takes Shakespear's Macbeth and then turns it up 'till
the knob comes off. It's all there - a wicked duke and duchess, the
ghost of the murdered king, dim soldiers, strolling players, a land
in peril. And who stands between the Kingdom and Destruction? Three
witches. Granny Weatherwax (intolerant, self-opinionated, powerful),
Nanny Ogg (down-to-earth, vulgar) and Magrat Garlick (naive, fond of
occult jewelly and bunnies)

%A adapted by Stephen Briggs %T Terry Pratchett's Mort - The Play %I Corgi (b format p/b) [cover art by Stephen Player.] %D 1996 ISBN 0-552-14429-0
Blurb:
Death comes to us all. When he came to Mort, he offered him a job.
But when Mort is left in charge for an evening, he allows his heart
to rule his head and soon the whole of causality and the future of
the Discworld itself, are at rist. Along the way, Mort encounters not
only Death's adopted daughter, Yeabell - who has been 16 for 35 years
and his mysterious man servant Albert - whose cooking can harden an
artery at 10 paces - but also an incompetent wizard with a talking
doorknocker and a beautiful, but rather bad-tempered and dead,
princess.

On Terry Pratchett's Discworld, Death really is a 7 foot skeleton in
a black hooded robe and weilding a scythe. He is also fond of cats,
enjoys a good curry, and rides around the scies on a magnificent white
horse called Binky.

Blurb:
Terry Pratchett's infamous city of Ankh-Morpork is under threat
from a 60-foot-fire-breathing dragon, summoned by a secret society
of malcontented tradesmen.

Defending Ankh-Morpork against this threat is the entire, underpaid,
undervalued City Night Watch - a drunken and world-weary Captain, a
cowardly and overweight Sergeant, a small opportunistic Corporal of
dubious parentage...and their newest recruit, Lance-Corporal Carrot,
who is upright, literal, law-abiding and keen. Aiding them in their
fight for truth, justice and the Ankh-Morporkian way are a small
swamp dragon and the Librarian of Unseen University (who just happ-
ens to be an orangutan).

Stephen Briggs has been involved in amateur dramatics for over 25
years and he assures us that the play can be staged without needing
the budget of Industrial Light and Magic. Not only that, but the
cast should still be able to be in the pub well before closing time.

Blurb:
Scarcely a year on from the events of _Guards! Guards!_, the Ankh-
Morpork City Night Watch find their services are once more needed
to tackle a threat to their city. A threat at least as deadly as a
60-foot dragon, but mechanical and heartless to boot.
It kills without compunction. It is the first gun on the Discworld.

The original Watch - Captain Vimes, Sergeant Colon, Corporal Carrot
and Corporal Nobbs - are joined by some new recruits, selected to
reflect the city's ethnic make-up - Lance-Constables Cuddy (a dwarf),
Detritus (a troll) and Angua (a w..., well, best to find out for

DISCWORLD IS ABOUT TO ROCK...

Deputising for DEATH was never going to be easy, not least when he
has gone walkabout in search of the Meaning of Life - without even
leaving a forwarding address. But for his granddaughter, Susan, it
becomes even more difficult when she breaks one of the cardinal
rules of the family business - don't get involved!

All around the Disc, crowds are shouting out for Buddy Celyn and
The Band With Rocks In. They are in the grip of a new and danger-
ous music and Buddy is under its thumb. It's alive, it changes
people - and it won't fade away.

Grain by grain, Buddy's time is running out and Susan has to save
him - it's not going to be easy when she looks more like the Tooth
Fairy than the Grim Reaper...

The World is Round... And Also Flat!

It's obvious really. Everyone [1] knows it.

The Disc rests on the back of four giant elephants, who in turn stand
on the back of Great A'Tuin, the only turtle to form the basis of an
entire branch of astrophysics.

For the last few years, events on the Discworld have been chronicled
in the works of Terry Pratchett. Fans have learned of the adventures
of Rincewind, the incompetent wizard, Granny Weatherwax, the witch
[known to trolls as "She Who Must Be Avoided]. Captain Carrot the six-
foot dwarf, Archchancellor Ridcully, Susan Sto Helit [granddaughter of
Death], and a cast of strange and unique characters.

Now, thanks to a special arrangement [rumoured to involve Mr Dibbler
of Ankh-Morpork, special consultancy on combat rules from Cohen the
ctogenarian Barbarian, and a vampire lawyer], it's time for roleplay-
ers to make their way to the far end of the probability curve and...

THRILL to the distinctive sights, sounds, and smells [especially
smells] of Ankh-Morpork, most dubious city in the multiverse!

Sail the Circle Sea in ursuit of wealth, glory, pirate gold, or a
suntan!

INTERVENE in the on-going racial rivalry of trolls and dwarves [watch
out for flying axes]!

AVOID the attentions of Death, Fate, the Lady, and the Patrician!

WONDER why they bought a second meat pie from Mr Dibbler!]

RUN AWAY from an angry Swamp Dragon [two feet of mindless fury and
hhigh-explosive digestion]!

LEARN why Casanunda [second greatest lover on the Discworld] needs
a stepladder.

Complete with Discworld magic, a guide to the best inns, Things from
the Dungeon Dimensions, Gaspode the Wonder Dog, and a Thousand Eleph-
ants. [Well, maybe we lied about the elephants.]

[1] Except the devout followers of the Great God Om, who firmly be-
lieve it's a sphere.

LOVE, HATE, REDEMPTION, DAMNATION, AND MUCH, MUCH, MORE or, other-
wise known as WYRD SISTERS

Three witches on a stormy heath, a king cruelly murdered, a usurper
on the throne, rivers of blood, lots of trees - is this beginning to
sound familiar? Add to that a young prince adrift from his rightful
inheritance, a travelling band of thespians, a fool who speaks the
truth, and some jokes - and a play within a screenplay, and you have
the essence of Shakespeare without having to read thirty-seven plays.
In fact you have the unexpurgated screenplay of one of Terry Prat-
chett's funniest and most telling Discworld stories.

%A adapred by Stephen Briggs %T Terry Pratchett's Maskerade - The Play %I Samuel French (b format p/b) [cover art by Stephen Player] %D 18/9/98 ISBN 0-573-01829-4

All is not well in the Ankh-Morpork Opera House. A ghost stalks
the dark corridors, leaving strange letters for the management
and ... killing people. Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg, two
Lancre witches, investigate, and are soon involved in all kinds
of skulduggery, mayhem and ear-splittingly loud singing.

Terry Pratchett's phenomenally popular Discworld novel, 'Maskerade',
has been skilfully adapted by Stephen Briggs with suitably dramatic
panache. Quirky and original characters, a labyrinthine plot and
numerous witty one-liners make this a treat for Discworld fans and
'uninitiated' theatregoers alike.

Being a concise and possibly even accurate MAPP of the Great
City of the DISCWORLD

Including Unseen University and environs!

Also finest assortment of avenues, lanes, squares, and alleys for
your walking pleasure

"There's a saying that all roads lead to Ankh-Morpork. And it's wrong.
All roads lead away from Ankh-Morpork, but sometimes people walk along
them the wrong way."
from Moving Pictures

Ankh-Morpork! City of One Thousand Surprises (according to the famous
publication by the Guild of Merchants)! All human life is there!
Although, if it walks down the wrong alley, often quite briefly!

The city celebrated in the bestselling Discworld series by Terry
Pratchett has been meticulously mapped for the first time. It's all
here - from *Unseen University* to the *Shades*, from major landmarks
like the *Patrician's Palace* to little-known, er, nooks like *Dwarf
Bread Museum* in *Whirligig Alley*. See the famous streets along
which so many heroes have walked, in some cases quite hurriedly!

As leading Ankh-Morpork entrepeneur C.M.O.T. Dibbler would say:
A snip at any price - and that's cutting our own throat. Well, close.

Blurb:

For the newcomer and the old hand alike the Discworld can be a
fatally confusing planet. From the great city of Ankh-Morpork,
featuring a river you could skateboard across if it wasn't so
knobbly, to the distant Ramptop Mountains and the mysterious
Counterweight Continent, the Discworld is a place where Death
waits around every corner...

For safety's sake, you need a guide.

And here it is. Terry Pratchett and Stephen Briggs, respectively
chronicler and cartographer of the Discworld, have produced the
one and only definitive guide to the flat planet - its geography,
its flora and fauna, its (many) religions, its architecture and
customs, and its outstanding personalities.

What is a Quantum Weather Butterfly? What does Death keep on his
desk? Would you drink Bearhugger's Homeopathic Sipping Whiskey?
How are the kings of Ankh-Morpork different from the kings of Ankh?


Everything the Discworld traveller needs to know is contained in
these pages, together with useful maps and illustrations of
significant places and emblems in this unique world.

Larsnephew, Llamedos Jones, Lady Alice Venturi, Ponce da Quirm and,
of course, Venter Borass.

Now travellers on this circular world can see it all: from Klatch
to the Ramtops, from Cori Celesti to the Circle Sea, from Genua to
Bhanbhanduc. The great cities of Hunghung, Pseudopolis, Al Khali

As Prophesised by Achmed the Mad!
'And lo, it came to pass, the denizens of Perfect Entertainment
did construct a game known to the world as Discworld II. For
forty days and forty nights did the heroes struggle with the
fiendish quests, until finally their occidental lobes were sore,
and they cried out to Jaala, goddess of lateral thinking, parallel
parking, pinball and miscellaneous entertainments, saying "How do
I get bees to sweat?" and "What do I do with the ironing board?"
And the spirit of Jaala moved through the world, and thus was the
Discworld II Strategy Guide created.'
_The Book of Kash (Prophet, 2nd Grade)._

Discworld is a planet rife with danger and magical mayhem and, when
Death disappears, a hero is desperately needed to bring him back.
Unfortunately for everyone Rincewind, the hapless magician, lands the
job ... and with a hero like that you need all the help you can get.

Not only an artistic and breathtaking view of Lancre but also
an interesting and informative guide to one of the Discworld's
more, er, picturesque kingdoms.

Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick live there.
Lancre could hardly be somewhere ordinary, could it ?

Magic glues the Discworld together and a lot of it ends up in
Lancre, principal Kingdom of the Ramtop Mountains. Between
Uberwald and Whale Bay, the Octarine Grass Country and the
Widdershins Ocean lies the most exciting and dangerous terrain
in all Discworld. The Ramtops supply Discworld with most of its
witches and wizards. The leaves on the trees in the Ramtops move
even when there is no breeze. Rocks go for a stroll in the even-
ing. Even the land, at times, seems alive.

The mapp may only be two-dimensional, but watch it very carefully
and you might see it jostle about a bit.

DEATH'S DOMAIN

It's no more than a breath away...


Everyone needs a place to relax after a long day, after all. So
here is the place where the Grim Reaper can kick back and take
the load off his scythe. Here's the golf course that's not so
much crazy as insane, and the useless maze, and the dark gardens
- all brought (incongruously) to life. And here, for the first
time ever, you will find out the reason why Death can't under-
stand rockeries, and what happens to garden gnomes.

As Death rides Binky into the sunset (of other people's lives),
you can at last see what he gets up to when he's not at work.

exposition.
blurb:
In the fantasy universe of the phenomenally best-selling
Discworld series, everything runs on magic and common sense.
The world is flat and million-to-one chances happen nine
times out of ten. Our world seems different - it runs on
rules, often rather strange ones. Science is our way of
finding out what those rules are. The appeal of Discworld
is that it mostly makes sense, in a way that particle
physics doesn't.

_The Science of Discworld_ uses the magic of Discworld
to illuminate the scientific rules that govern _our_
world. When a wizardly experiment goes adrift, the wiz-
ards of Unseen University find themselves with a pocket
universe on their hands: Roundworld, where neither magic
nor common sense seems to stand a chance against logic.

Roundworld is, of course, our own universe. With us in-
side it (eventually). Guided (if that's the word) by
the wizards, we follow the story from the primal sing-
ularity of the Big Bang to the Internet and beyond. We
discover how puny and insignificant lives are against a
cosmic backdrop of creation and disaster. Yet, paradox-
ically, we see how the richness of a universe based on
rules has led to a complex world and at least one spec-
ies that tried to get a grip on what was going on...

The ten-digit International Standard Book Number is used to uniquely identify an edition of a book (though not, in uk usage, each printing). it consists of a first section, identifying the language ("0-" or "1-" indicates english); a second section identifying the publisher, some- times, now, the imprint - where one publisher has been taken over by another). it is the last part of the isbn that is peculiar to the part- icular edition of a book from the publisher identified by these prefixes (the final tenth figure is a check digit, that allows transmission and typing errors to be caught by computer systems - or, in theory, by hand).

--------------------------------------- 9.4 Notes on book formats.
audio/b "Audiobook" - a reading of the novel, or an abbreviation of it,
recorded on a number of compact cassettes. the Corgi audio/b range
is of abridgements narrated by Tony ("Baldrick") Robinson, filling
two cassettes per novel, running time circa three hours each; the
Isis audio/b range is of the complete novels narrated by either
Nigel ("Neil") Planer [or Celia Imries, on the first two witches
novels] and occupying variously six, or eight, cassettes; running
time varying widely between seven and a half, and eleven hours.
Neither publishers' audio/b cassettes are differentiated in a way
that blind or visually impaired (poorly-sighted) people can easily
distinguish; this is of less consequence with the corgi audio/bs,
as there are only two cassettes per novel to confuse; however, the
isis audio/b packaging does allow strict order to be followed - IF
the cassettes are ALWAYS returned to the appropriate position (and
preferably, the earlier, "odd" sides uppermost).

h/cvr "Hardcover" - the printed pages are published bound between boards
(generally cloth-covered: hence h/cvr editions also referred to as
"cloth"). the pages are properly sewn into signatures, and collec-
ted by being sewn to cloth tapes, and sewn and glued onto a backing
cloth, which is then glued to the inside edges of the cloth-covered
boards. the endpapers are then glued in to cover the insides of the
cloth-covered boards, and to the spine edges of the fly pages.

n.b. the gollancz/cassell plc editions of The Witches Trilogy and
The Death Trilogy are not so bound, being in effect p/bs which
happen to have board covers...

n.b. the gollancz/cassell miniature h/cvrs are not so bound, in that
the cloth elements of a proper binding are completely omitted.

[this note will need rewriting, should editions of Terry's books be
published in quarter, half, three-quarter or full leather bindings.]

mmp/b "Mass Market Paperback" - this term is descriptive of the distribut-
ion system used to make these merkin p/bs available to the retailer;
essentially, mmp/bs are treated as monthly magazines, their covers
being stripped and returned for credit, if unsold on the arrival of
the following month's titles. in _size_, the mmp/b is approximately
the same as the uk "a format p/b"; but virtually all uk p/bs are in
fact tp/bs. (cf. "p/b", "tp/b", "yp/b")

p/b "Paperback" - the signatures are blocked together and then trimmed,
with the resultant individual pages then being glued to the inside
spine of a card cover (also known as "perfect" binding). although
p/bs have been produced with their pages sewn in signatures, these
in turn being glued either to the inside spine of the card cover (or
first into paper or cloth tape) and this to the card cover, no such
editions exist of Terry's books. [but see the feetnotes to "h/cvr".]
the uk "a format p/b" is roughly the same size as the merkin mmp/b;
the "b format p/b" is approximately an inch and a quarter taller and
wider that the a format p/b. (see also "mmp/b", "tp/b" and "yp/b")
n.b. p/bs listed above are a format p/b, unless otherwise indicated.

tp/b "Trade Paperback" - this term is descriptive of the distribution
system used to make these (nowadays mostly merkin, for fiction)
p/bs available to the retailer; tp/bs are not sold via the news
wholesalers, nor the retail outlets they supply (news-stand, chain-
store and/ mom+pop store racks, etc.), but via the book trade.
they are not "strippable for credit". the tp/b may be a p/b of any
size, and so is not strictly of any particular format. (cf. "mmp/b",
"p/b" & "yp/b")

yp/b "Yuppieback" - this term is descriptive of the uk p/bs manufactured
from trimmed signatures of the h/cvr printing: it is a recent uk
innovation, normally published at the same time as, or three or six
months after, the h/cvr. the term was derived from the somewhat res-
tricted perceived custom for this edition: "those who can afford it
(the space as well as the cost) buy the hardcover, and normal people
like you and me buy the paperback: that only leaves yuppies, to buy
the yuppiebacks." the yp/b is necessarily of the dimensions of the
trimmed h/cvr edition signatures. (cf. "mmp/b", "p/b" and "tp/b")
