Turtle Recall: The Discworld Companion ...So FarTerry Pratchett, Stephen Briggs
The Discworld, as everyone knows, is a flat world balanced on the backs of four elephants which, in turn, stand on the shell of the giant star turtle, the Great A'Tuin, as it slowly swims through space.
It is also a global publishing phenomenon with sales of over 70 million books worldwide (but who's counting?). The publication of Snuff brought the Discworld canon to 39 books - not including the various guides, mapps, diaries and other side-projects. That's a lot of Discworld to keep track of - more than most people can manage with just the one head - but fear not: help is at hand!
If you're looking for the ultimate authority on probably the most heavily populated - certainly the most hilarious - setting in fantasy literature...
If you need a handy guide to Discworld locales from Ankh-Morpork to Zemphis...
If you want help telling Achmed the Mad from Jack Zweiblumen...
If your life depends on being able to distinguish the Agatean Empire from the Zoons...
...look no further than Turtle Recall - the latest Discworld Companion, fully updated and completely up to Snuff!

Stephen Briggs (born 1951) is a British writer of subsidiary works and merchandise surrounding Terry Pratchett's comic fantasy Discworld. The Streets of Ankh-Morpork, the first Discworld map, was co-designed by Briggs and Pratchett and painted by Stephen Player in 1993. The Discworld Mapp, A Tourist Guide to Lancre and Death's Domain followed.
The Discworld encyclopaedia The Discworld Companion, published in 1995 with updated editions in 1998 and 2003, is derived from Briggs' database of Discworld information. In 2007 Briggs published Wit and Wisdom of Discworld, a compilation of quotes from the Discworld novels. He also collaborated with Pratchett in the books The Discworld Diaries and Nanny Ogg's Cookbook. Briggs has also recorded audiobook versions of certain Discworld works, in editions released by Isis Publishing and by HarperCollins in the US.
