“In-Universe” books and other artefacts are ones which present themselves as though they exist within the fictional universe they are part of. That is, Nanny Ogg’s Cookbook is a book in Roundworld, written by Terry Pratchett, Stephen Briggs and Tina Hannan, as though it was written by Nanny Ogg and published in Ankh-Morpork. There are many such books and other artefacts for the Discworld.


We’ve noted the fictional authors and publishers below:


The first in-universe artefacts were the various Discworld Maps, or “Mapps” as they insist on spelling it. They have continued to be very popular.


Though they present dates usable in Roundworld, these diaries are all written as though published on Discworld for the benefit of various students, members and employees. While very much out of print, the fictional content of the eight Pratchett worked on has been collected in The Ankh-Morpork Anthology, Vol. 1 and The Ankh-Morpork Anthology, Vol. 2.
