I have been looking for the discworld novels in miniature pocket size hardbacks. I remember them from years ago but can find no mention anyway on the internets. Did i dream them?

Welcome to the site! :D

No you didn't imagine the books and Amazon have at least some of them.

Here's Mort for example and Here's Equal Rites. :wink:

That's quite handy though, cos they're the next 2 books i was thinking of buying. Yes they are small, but also quite cheap and seem to be in fairly good nick if Amazon allow the shipping to be under them (at least for one of them). So Mort and Equal Rites next on the to buy list...Any good? I've read Hogfather & Thief of Time, and am about 50 pages in Soul Music, so hopefully i will enjoy Mort at least. :lol:

Pooh, which language are you speaking this time? :lol: Just joking.
Pocket books sound quite usefulm, esp. when you normally have to lug around a large book with you everywhere :roll: but wont the writing be tiny since his books are pretty big anywya. Not as tiny as the shannara series if they were pocket-size-ized :lol: :shock: :shock:

Only th first 4 were issued as Compact Discworld in about 92 or 93 I cant check as I am at work and the books are at home ,they were a nice idea but the print is so small you practically have to use a magnifying glass to read them as the only measure about 60x60mm

I have checked and they were published in 1995 and measure 75x 80mm you still need a magnifying glass to read them though

I have two, Mort & The Colour Of Magic. I did have the others but lent them to someone & never got them back. :x
I am on the look out for the 'lost' ones.
They are very hard to read.
Best wishes,
