This collection of essays spans Pratchett's career from the 1971 publication of _The Carpet People_ to his the second Tiffany Aching book, _Hat Full of Sky_ in 2004. The various authors focus on themes, such as coming of age, the development of the geography of Discworld, and the treatment of the academic world; or on characters, such as Death and Sam Vines. Some of the essays are clearly aimed at an academic audience, others may be appreciated by any reader interested in in-depth discussion of the works. This work, is not, however, essential to a fan library.
