Synopsis: Terry Pratchett joins up with a leading folklorist to reveal the legends, myths and customs of Discworld, together with helpful hints from Planet Earth.

Most of us grew up having always known when to touch wood or cross our fingers, and what happens when a princess kisses a frog or a boy pulls a sword from a stone, yet sadly some of these things are beginning to be forgotten. Legends, myths, and fairy tales: our world is made up of the stories we told ourselves about where we came from and how we got here. It is the same on Discworld, except that beings, which on Earth are creatures of the imagination — like vampires, trolls, witches and, possibly, gods — are real, alive and, in some cases kicking, on the Disc.

In The Folklore of Discworld, Terry Pratchett teams up with leading British folklorist Jacqueline Simpson to take an irreverent yet illuminating look at the living myths and folklore that are reflected, celebrated and affectionately libelled in the uniquely imaginative universe of Discworld.

About the Author: Dr. Jacqueline Simpson’s publications include British Dragons; Folklore of Sussex; Scandinavian Folktales and (with Jennifer Westwood), The Lore of the Land: A Guide to England’s Legends.

Terry Pratchett is one of the most popular authors writing today. He is the acclaimed creator of the Discworld series, the first title in which, The Colour of Magic, was published in 1983, and the latest is Making Money. His books have been translated into 37 languages. Terry Pratchett was knighted for services to literature in 2009.
