I was just wondering..
if it's possible to call any of Terry's books as fictional travel writing?
I have to [
] write about travel writing, but I don't want to write about non-fiction.
I thought about "The colour of magic" or "Witches Abroad".
Can anyone help me?

Hi there Thidien
Witches Abroad would qualify as a travelogue of sorts - we have a discussion thread for it HERE
which may give you some lines to follow up.
CoM and Light Fantastic are also travelogues from Twoflower's perspective too

I would have thought Witches Abroad in particular was a good example of fictional travel writing. But I think the ultimate fictional journey would be Lord of the Rings. If you haven't read it, maybe better to stick to WA, LOTR is too long to get through in a weekend

One of the main uses of Rincewind has been to explore the Disc. Terry can and does send the luckless wizzard off to far corners (if a Disc has corners). In some recent books he's used Sam Vimes to explore. I'm thinking of Thud! and 5th Elephant in particular.

Yes! We're all individuals!
