Footnotes

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 A template using this abbreviation has been set up to make linking to this book easier. Type the acronym in braces, e.g. {{RM}} will produce Reaper Man. The shortcuts can also link to external articles by supplying a further parameter; for example {{RM|ls}} produces a link to the L-Space wiki article, like this: Reaper Man. (See Template:BookShortcut for more info.) Note that book shortcuts are given precedence to make sure they match the ones used on the L-Space wiki; see the list of Pratchett podcasts for how this affects podcast shortcuts.
  2. These are the traditional fan categorisations, which we prefer for this site. Sub-series appearing in this column in parentheses are debatable.
  3. The new 2022-2023 editions split the books into non-overlapping series that don't quite line up with the ones used by fans. (See the 50 Years of Terry page for details.)
  4. Some Discworld stories and books are associated with one or more of the main novels, either through the re-use of characters or plot elements, or because they represent a fictional book or other item referenced in those novels.
