In no particular order.............

A Blink of the Screen (11th October 2012)

A Blink of the Screen charts the course of Terry Pratchett's long writing career: from his schooldays through to his first writing job on the Bucks Free Press, and the origins of his debut novel, The Carpet People; and on again to the dizzy mastery of the phenomenally successful Discworld series.

The Complete Ankh-Morpork (8th November 2012)

A stunning map and comprehensive street directory covering each and every district from Unseen University to the Shades, major landmarks like the Patrician's Palace to little-known, er, nooks like Dwarf Bread Museum in Whirligig Alley. See the notorious establishments and famous streets along which so many heroes have walked, in some cases quite hurriedly.

Dodger (13th September 2012)

Dodger is a tosher - a sewer scavenger living in the squalor of Dickensian London. Everyone who is nobody knows Dodger. Anyone who is anybody doesn't. But when he rescues a young girl from a beating, suddenly everybody wants to know him. And Dodger's tale of skulduggery, dark plans and even darker deeds begins . . .

Turtle Recall: The Discworld Companion . . . So Far (8th November 2012)

The Discworld is a flat world balanced on the backs of four elephants* which, in turn, stand on the back of a giant turtle. And like any world, the Discworld is not always predictable - in fact, it's distinctly unpredictable, what with rivers you could skateboard across (if they weren't so knobbly) and points of raw magic that'd turn a body inside out soon as look at it .

For safety's sake, you need a guide to lead you through the highways and byways of this extraordinary world.

A Blink of the Screen is the companion novel to, Once More with Footnotes so that's a must. :mrgreen:
