One part diary, one part guide to the arcane practices of the funniest creation in modern fantasy, 100% Discworld goodness. With their trademark mix of cultural ephemera, background detail and hilarious one-liners, the Discworld diaries are back. And 2016's diary gives a long-awaited insight into the wit and wisdom of some of the Discworld's most-loved characters, the Witches. Or, as Granny Weatherwax puts it: "I don't hold with diaries. If a witch don't know where she's been or where she should be, no amount of writing it down in long and diverse letters will make any difference. There are some who say that making a note of birthdays and the like will mean you get a lot of presents but I think Gytha is wrong. But suit yourself. Personally I can't be doing with it." ~ Esme Weatherwax

One part diary, one part guide to the arcane practices of the funniest creation in modern fantasy, 100% Discworld goodness. With their trademark mix of cultural ephemera, background detail and hilarious one-liners, the Discworld diaries are back. And what better way to start than with the unsung heroes of the Discworld? Without these stoic, selfless heroes, the movers and shakers of the Discworld would not move and shake nearly as much. While the Great and Good of Ankh-Morpork take the headlines, these quietly competent minions toil away in the background doing all of the actual work. They all hail from the same clan, which originates in the farflung region of Überwald, and no self-respecting mad scientist would be seen dead (or, for that matter, undead) with them. They are, of course, the Igors, and we're confident this behind-the-scenes look at their day-to-day life will have you in ... ahem ... stitches.

The Post Office: this musty, dusty and sh***y organisation was jolted back into life in GOING POSTAL. Hidebound and rulebound, the Post Office is creaking towards a brave new world of efficiency - and it may even deliver the mail, too. But like all bureaucracies, the Ankh-Morpork Post Office has its rules and regulations and these, together with the history of this once-great department, are highlighted and parodied in the Ankh-Morpork Post Office Handbook. How do you send eggs through the Post Office? What size envelope is banned? And what happens when snails start eating the mail? It's all here in the Ankh-Morpork Post Office Handbook and Diary 2007. * that's of the pigeon guano type, of course.

The Ankh-Morpork Assassins¿ Guild* in its modern form is the result of Lord Vetinari¿s distinctive civic policy, and is renowned across the Discworld. It offers the best all-round education in the world, because a qualified assassin should be at home in any company, and able to play at least one musical instrument. Anyone inhumed by a graduate of the Guild school can go to his rest satisfied that he has been annulled by someone of taste and discretion. You need never be late for an assassination again with this fully functioning diary with all the necessary dates, holidays, notes and a year planner, including Octedays, the exclusive ¿8th Discworld day¿. The fifty-two week spreads will be liberally illustrated by Paul Kidby, with the usual witty, quirky and apposite bons mots from the pen of Terry Pratchett himself. *Motto: NIL MORTIFI, SINE LVCRE

Contrast the Fools' Guild with the Assassins' Guild next door: one is pleasant, light and airy and the corridors echo with the quiet activity of people working hard to master a job they love; the other is gaunt, forbidding and silent, except for the occasional muffled sob . . . The Fools' Guild, founded 150 years ago, is also a hospital, craft standards enforcer, fraternal society and school. There is always a place and a custard pie in the face for any young boy with an amusing hump, speech impediment or other laughable deformity. As with previous diaries in the series, the usual mundane dates are complemented by the Discworld's own special occasions, so you will always know when to expect the Soul Cake Duck's choccie eggs and which days are most auspicious for the throwing of custard pies.
