Product Details

Praise

“Beautiful analysis of the overlapping myth and legends in both Discworld and ours. You’ll learn a lot about each.” —The Bookseller

Praise for Terry Pratchett

“Like all great creators of imaginary worlds, Terry Pratchett writes like an enthralled and driven reader. He creates a brilliant excess of delectable detail, he respects his own creation and his readers.”
     –A. S. Byatt

“It is [his] closeness to reality–within a fantasy context–that makes Pratchett’s books so popular with a wider readership than merely the goblin junkies and interplanetary nargs.”
     —The Sunday Times (London)

“One of the most interesting and critically underrated novelists we have. . . . The Folklore of Discworld—co-authored with the eminent folklorist Jacqueline Simpson—emphasizes his irreverence and drollery.”
     — The Times

“Pratchett is, like Mark Twain or Jonathan Swift, not just a great writer but also an original thinker . . . Funny, exciting, lighthearted and, like all the best comedy, very serious.”
     —The Guardian
