Terry Pratchett's Discworld is the home of over three dozen novels, a slew of short stories, and even a science essay or three. The writing spans a quarter of a century and is still going. Some books are serious, some are slapstick. Some are aimed at a young adult audience, some at adults ... although there's nothing in them that a young adult shouldn't enjoy just as well. The setting is legendary: A flat disc, home to a myriad of civilizations, set on the backs of four elephants, all standing on the shell of a giant turtle, swimming through the void of space. Between the setting, the characters, and the stories, the author of The Turtle Moves has his hands full trying to kludge together a framework that can begin to make sense of it all.

From official release/information:

Book Description: From the banks of the river Ankh to the walls of Sto Lat, the entirety of Terry Pratchett's renowned Discworld series is explored in this expansive resource. Essays discussing a range of topics—among them Pratchett's place in literary canon, the nature of the Disc itself, and the causes and results of the Discworld phenomenon—accompany a chronological account of the more than three dozen novels in the series. Perfect for veteran fans and neophytes alike, this is the complete guide to the world on the cosmic turtle's back.
