Discworld Read-Along


Sir Terry Pratchett died on March 12, 2015.  As a way of honoring the work of a man who helped make me the Geek I am today, I started to reread his (rather longrunning) Discworld series.  Skipping a few of the short stories and “science” text books, this project once complete will include all 41 books, even the ones written for younger readers.  What happens beyond that point?  Beats me.  Wait and see.

In the meantime, please enjoy this look at Pratchett’s best known work, the satirical fantasy setting of the Discworld, a flat planet on the backs of four elephants on the back of a turtle that swims through the cosmos.
