Reading Zone

Authors Rhianna Pratchett and Gabrielle Kent tell ReadingZone about revisiting Terry Pratchett’s fantasy Discworld series with their new guide, which gives a warm, insightful and often hilarious guide into the world, its characters and what being a Discworld witch means. 

On the final read-through, we each sat with a glass of good whisky as we took turns to read through the chapters. As we tearily finished reading On Journeys, the last piece in the book, we raised our glasses to each other, and to Terry, and felt we’d created something really special.

We cannot overstate Terry Pratchett’s influence on our own writing. He is there in everything we do. The creation of this Discworld guide is, in part, our way of paying homage to his work, while bringing readers back into the magical world he so masterfully crafted.
