Discworld is turning 30!

Discworld is a comic fantasy book series written by the English writer Terry Pratchett, set on the fictional Discworld, a flat disc balanced on the backs of four elephants which, in turn, stand on the back of a giant turtle.

The books frequently parody, or take inspiration from, fantasy classics, as well as mythology, folklore and fairy tales, often using them for satirical parallels with current cultural, political and scientific issues. The popular series has sold more than 80 million books in 37 languages.

Raising Steam, book #41 in the series, was just released. You can Disc-cover the fun and frivolity of this series starting with the first novel, The Colour of Magic, or you can jump in anywhere, as the books also work as stand-along titles.
