Synopsis

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 THE SHEPHERD'S CROWN brought the Discworld canon to 41 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 THE ABSOLUTE DISCWORLD COMPANION - fully updated by the encyclopaedic Stephen Briggs and fully illustrated by the kaleidoscopic Paul Kidby!
