A comprehensive guide to the enigmatic capital city of Terry Pratchett's DISCWORLD, getting to the heart of Ankh-Morpork's secrets, societies and guilds
Think you know Ankh-Morpork? Think again.
In this top-secret guide, travellers will receive a first-hand experience of the real city. If you've ever wondered where Unseen University students wet their whistles (while managing to avoid their teachers doing the same), or exactly what the Assassins' Guild constitutes a true and proper means of inhumation - there are standards to be upheld, after all - then this is the book for you.
Just don't let the Thieves' Guild catch you with this. They won't appreciate their methods being flogged behind their back. Flogging's their job, after all.
Completely revamped and redesigned, this full-colour book contains material from DISCWORLD DIARIES across the decades.
Stephen Briggs lives in Oxfordshire and has been involved for many years in the sinister world of amateur dramatics, which is how he came to discover the Discworld. Having read one book, he was hooked and read the entire canon over the next three weeks. Oxford's Studio Theatre Club went on to stage his adaptations of WYRD SISTERS, MORT, GUARDS! GUARDS!...and many, many more. As well as compiling THE DISCWORLD COMPANION, THE NEW DISCWORLD COMPANION and, now, TURTLE RECALL: THE DISCWORLD COMPANION ... SO FAR, he has also co-authored the Discworld Diaries, the Mapps and has dramatised most of the Discworld novels. Stephen also now voices the UK and US Discworld audio books.
