Discworld Collection

The first 21 Discworld novels are the Gollancz Discworld Hardback Collector’s Library Editions. These are the books that were published before Pratchett’s publisher changed to Doubleday. These editions are still available now on Amazon at £7-9 (as of March 2015)

The reason I went for these editions is firstly the art by Joe McClaren gives them a real contemporary feel and is right up my street, every cover is stunning. Of course Josh Kirby’s covers are the face of a disc world generation and are fantastic. But I also had to be realistic, I would have never managed to collect the original First Editions of all original 21 Discworld novels without devoting all my time and money into them. I did have a few of them, which I sold to fund this whole beautiful collection which just look stunning on the bookshelf. You can read these in any order these were just the date were released, I like reading them in the collections, this way you get a real feel for the lead characters and can follow their particular storylines closely. I have read the first 21 books, Mort is my favourite.

The further 19 Discworld books were published by Doubleday. These I do collect the First Editions of which of course are a lot less scarce. The only signed book I have is the illustrated copy of the Wee Free Men which I found in a charity shop for £1.50. I also have a signed copy of ‘Dodger’ one of Terrys’ books not set in Discworld. This contains the hologram which has been added to signature over the last few years because of the progression of Terrys’ Alzheimers. I have only read The Truth, The Wee Free Men and Snuff so far.

The Shepherd’s Crown will be the last Discworld novel written by Terry after his very sad death in march 2015 due to his ’embuggerance.’

His Twitter account finally read.

AT LAST, SIR TERRY, WE MUST WALK TOGETHER.

Terry took Death’s arm and followed him through the doors and on to the black desert under the endless night.

The End.
