30 YEARSOFDISCWORLD

‘Cracking dialogue, compelling illogic and unchained whimsy . . . Pratchett has a subject and a style that is very much his own’ – Sunday Times

TERRY PRATCHETT Discworld Library

77

To celebrate thirty years of the Discworld, this is the perfect gift for fans of Terry Pratchett and a must-have for readers who love the Discworld Universe and would like high quality editions to treasure! This Collector’s Library, undertaken with Sir Terry Pratchett's blessing, will see the release of a beautiful, affordable new set of hardback editions of the Discworld novels originally published by Gollancz. The Discworld Collector’s Library will be published thematically – The Death Collection, The Witches Collection, The Unseen University Collection, The City Watch Collection and The Gods Collection – beginning in November 2013. These will be stunning B-format hardbacks at an affordable £9.99 – and that’s cutting our own throats! With worldwide sales of over 75 million copies and translated into thirty-seven languages, the Discworld is truly a global publishing phenomenon, which cements Sir Terry Pratchett as the premier writer of comic novels of our time. ‘A sequence of unalloyed delight’ – The Guardian ‘The great Terry Pratchett, whose wit is metaphysical, who creates an energetic and lively secondary world, who has a multifarious genius for strong parody . . . who deals with death with startling originality. Who writes amazing sentences’ A. S. Byatt Among Sir Terry Pratchett’s many prizes are the Carnegie Medal, eight honorary doctorates and, of course, a knighthood. He is best known for the globally bestselling Discworld series, many of which have been adapted for television. His books have sold approximately 75 million copies worldwide and been translated into 37 languages.
