"Beautiful analysis of the overlapping myth and legends in both Discworld and ours. You'll learn a lot about each." --The Bookseller Praise for Terry Pratchett "Like all great creators of imaginary worlds, Terry Pratchett writes like an enthralled and driven reader. He creates a brilliant excess of delectable detail, he respects his own creation and his readers." --A. S. Byatt "It is [his] closeness to reality--within a fantasy context--that makes Pratchett's books so popular with a wider readership than merely the goblin junkies and interplanetary nargs." --The Sunday Times (London) "One of the most interesting and critically underrated novelists we have. . . . The Folklore of Discworld--co-authored with the eminent folklorist Jacqueline Simpson--emphasizes his irreverence and drollery." -- The Times "Pratchett is, like Mark Twain or Jonathan Swift, not just a great writer but also an original thinker . . . Funny, exciting, lighthearted and, like all the best comedy, very serious." --The Guardian
