Rhianna Pratchett is a writer best known for her work in videogames, especially the modern Tomb Raider series, and the Overlord series of comic fantasy games. She is best known to Discworld fans as the daughter of Terry Pratchett, and as co-owner of Narrativia, the company which controls the media rights to Pratchett’s works. Several of Pratchett’s novels are dedicated to Rhianna, and he based the character of Esk (at least as she appears in Equal Rites) on her.
Rhianna wrote a screenplay adaptation of The Wee Free Men before Terry’s death, and was given permission to continue the series, but has said there will be no new novels. She has decided to work only on spin-offs, adaptations and tie-ins. Her first published Discworld work will be Tiffany Aching’s Guide to Being a Witch, co-authored with Gabrielle Kent.

- Puffin Signs Pratchett and Kent’s Guide to Being a Witch set in the Discworld - The Bookseller, 1 June 2023; includes Rhianna’s thoughts on continuing the Discworld legacy.
- This is the book's numbering in the modern Scholastic series of Fighting Fantasy books, which has no relation to the numbering of the originals.
- Rhianna narrates these stories, so while she’s not the host, it feels a bit weird to list her as a “guest”.
- Note that the official site given for the show is the subreddit for the host, Genna Bain.
