Which books have the guards in?

Postby rose2 » Wed Sep 01, 2010 7:29 pm

This is my first topic so sorry if it's a stupid question,

The guard books are my favorites and I wondered which ones include them, so could someone please list them. :) [quote][/quote]

The Guards series, in order:

Guards, Guards!
Men at Arms
Feet of Clay
Jingo
The Fifth Elephant
Night Watch
Thud!

"The Truth" is sometimes considered part of the "Guards" series, since half of the book centers around a mystery in which the Guards are deeply involved, Vimes and Co. are not the main characters in the story.

Different groups of Guards make cameo appearances in "Maskerade," "Going Postal," "Making Money" "Unseen Academicals," "Hogfather" and "Monstrous Regiment." Maybe other books as well, but I don't remember.

If you want to pick out the various 'series' then the Discworld reading order guide is really handy.

Just click on the picture when it appears to get a larger version you can read.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..
