Other Discworld books

These books use stories from the Discworld to examine our own world, dubbed “Roundworld” in The Science of Discworld. Rincewind and the wizards of Unseen University feature prominently in fiction chapters of the Science books, which alternate with non-fiction chapters by Stewart and Cohen. The Folklore book does not contain any new fiction.

  • The Science of Discworld (with Ian Stewart and Jack Cohen; 1999)
  • The Science of Discworld II – The Globe (with Ian Stewart and Jack Cohen; 2002)
  • The Science of Discworld III – Darwin’s Watch (with Ian Stewart and Jack Cohen; 2005)
  • The Science of Discworld IV – Judgement Day (with Ian Stewart and Jack Cohen; 2013)
  • The Folklore of Discworld (with Jacqueline Simpson; 2008, updated in 2009 and 2014)

The following books are (mostly) “in-universe”; books that have either been published somewhere on the Discworld, or are presented as if they have been (even where that seems very unlikely). Where’s My Cow? and The World of Poo are children’s books which first appeared in the novels Thud! and Snuff respectively, while Mrs Bradshaw’s Handbook (and Mrs Bradshaw herself) appear in Raising Steam.

  • Nanny Ogg’s Cookbook (with Stephen Briggs and Tina Hannan; 1999)
  • Where’s My Cow? (2005)
  • World of Poo (2012)
  • Mrs Bradshaw’s Handbook (2014)

Once the books had fleshed out the world enough, there have been several maps (or “mapps”) and map books published detailing Disc geography. They all contain additional information about the locations depicted, in an in-universe style.

  • The Streets of Ankh-Morpork (with Stephen Briggs; 1993)
  • The Discworld Mapp (with Stephen Briggs; 1995)
  • A Tourist’s Guide to Lancre (with Stephen Briggs; 1998)
  • Death’s Domain: A Discworld Mapp (1999)
  • The Compleat Ankh-Morpork (via the Discworld Emporium; 2012)
  • The Compleat Discworld Atlas (via the Discworld Emporium; 2015)

There are also several short stories set on the Discworld; most of them appear in A Blink of the Screen (see below).
