The New Discworld Companion is a compendium of trivia, characters, locations and events from the Discworld universe. It provides a summary of details given over the entirety of the series, as well as miscellaneous notes from Pratchett's idea folder that never made it off the ground or haven't been written yet. It fleshes out the Discworld with an encyclopedic reference of, well, everything. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

The Discworld is an unpredictable place, what with rivers you can skateboard across (if they weren't so knobbly), rocks that like a stroll about of an evening and points of raw magic that can turn a body inside out soon as look at it. For safety's sake, you need a guide! The DISCWORLD COMPANION contains everything you need to know about the Discworld. This edition, the first major revision since HOGFATHER was published (1997), covers the eight DISCWORLD novels from JINGO onwards, including THE LAST HERO and MAURICE AND HIS AMAZING EDUCATED RODENTS, as well as the Diaries, the plays and other Discworld Spinoffery.
