The Witches series of books follow the exploits of a coven of witches who live in the Ramtops kingdom of Lancre. Primarily these books follow Granny Weatherwax (who appears in all of the books) and Nanny Ogg (who appears in all but the first); they are initially joined by Magrat, but she eventually leaves the coven to be replaced by Anges Nitt. Tiffany Aching is also a witch, and spends most of two books in the Ramtops, but her books are considered their own series, even though Granny and Nanny go on to appear in them.
The Witches series comprises six novels and one short story:
- Equal Rites
- Wyrd Sisters
- Witches Abroad
- Lords and Ladies
- Carpe Jugulum
- “The Sea and Little Fishes”
The short story acts as a bridge between the Witches and Tiffany Aching series. Granny and Nanny go on to appear in all the Tiffany Aching books, though Nanny doesn’t appear in A Hat Full of Sky. Nanny also has a significant cameo in Thief of Time, and is of course the “author” of Nanny Ogg's Cookbook. Granny appears briefly in The Science of Discworld II: The Globe.
