Discworld (TPB)Folklore of Discworld, The: Legends, Myths, and Customs from the Discworld with Helpful Hints from Planet Earth (m. Jacqueline Simpson) (Pratchett, Terry)

OFFERING INSIGHTS INTO ALL 40 DISCWORLD NOVELS Find out - Why cheeses roll down hills - The hazards of treacle mining - What’s so uncanny about the humble hare -The origins of orcs (which are not the same as goblins!) - Why witches come in threes Legends, myths, fairytales, superstitions. Our world is full of the stories we have told ourselves about where we came from and how we got there. It is the same on Discworld, except that beings such as vampires, trolls, golems, witches and, possibly, gods, which on Earth are creatures of the imagination, are real, alive, and in some cases kicking on the Disc. The Folklore of Discworld, coauthored by Terry Pratchett and leading British folklorist Jacqueline Simpson, is an invaluable reference for longtime Discworld fans and newcomers alike. An irreverent yet illuminating look at the living myths and folklore that are reflected, celebrated, and affectionately libeled in the uniquely imaginative universe of Discworld.

Terry Pratchett
Engelsk forfatter som er kendt og elsket for sine "Discworld" bøger som der nu er kommet næsten 40 af. Det hele startede med bogen "The Colour of Magic" som udkom I 1983, om en klodset troldmand ved navn Rincewind. 3 år senere udkom fortsættelsen og siden har Pratchett ikke fået nogen nattesøvn fordi sultne fans sad og ventede på hans næste bog. Det stadigt voksende person galleri består blandt andet af heksen Granny Weatherwax, kufferten Luggage, døden DEATH, og vagten Vimes. Der er blevet lavet en del skuespil baseret på Pratchett's bøger og der er også blevet lavet tegnefilmsudgaver af to af dem.
