  1. Things We Saw Today: A Discworld Cake, Complete With Giant Turtle

    Note: not a full-size replica.

    I can't say that I've ever wondered what the Great A'Tuin tastes like, but apparently it's filled with chocolate mint grasshopper cake. (by Art2Eat Cakes, via That's Nerdalicious!)

  3. The Fantastical Imagination Of Artist Story Sabatino

    Heffalumps and Woozles

    Story Sabatino (Oozn on DeviantArt) has a style that jumped out at me immediately. While she does some wicked fan art inspired by things like Game of Thrones, she also creates wonderful scenarios of her own with some interesting creatures. See for yourself...

  4. Get Jealous: the UK is Getting Beautiful New Discworld Covers

    old gods do new jobs

    Such lovely woodcuts I almost couldn't decide which one to make the top of the post. The United Kingdom and Commonwealth countries (excluding Canada), I am properly jealous, for the new edition hardcovers that these images will grace will only be available in you. (Sure wish Susan Sto Helit could have made the cover of any of the books she stars in. Quick, someone draw me Joan Jett as Susan rocking out on my ideal cover of Soul Music.)

  5. This iPad Map Guides You Through Ankh-Morpork, Where Else Do You Want to Go?

    There's an app for everything, right? Well, not yet, but maybe soon. For example, Random House has created an app for the iPad that lets you explore, in great detail, the entire city of Ankh-Morpork, the famous fictional metropolis of the Discworld series.

  6. Terry Pratchett to Leave Discworld in His Daughter’s Hands

    It's A World of Laughter A World of Tears

    Don't panic, Discworld fans, to use the words of another British humorist. Terry Pratchett hasn't given up the writing ghost yet, he's just planning for the future. And those plans include his only child, Rhianna Pratchett, already a pretty accomplished writer in nerd spheres.

  7. Terry Pratchett Visits Comic Con, Talks Books; Ankh-Morpork TV Series

    i'll just leave this here

    A television show based on the fertile setting of Terry Pratchett's Ankh-Morpork city guards has been a long time coming, despite its seeming obviousness, so you'll have to forgive us if we have to keep reassuring ourselves that it's actually happening. Sir Terry himself stopped by New York Comic Con yesterday, nominally to talk about his new novel Dodger, but of course folks were interested in Discworld events, on the page or otherwise.

  8. Researchers Propose Space-Time Crystal as Perfect Clock, Will Probably Destroy Universe

    An international team of researchers led by scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have proposed a way to build a clock so perfect, it would keep ticking long after the universe is rendered a cold dead place.

  9. Reportedly: Discworld City Watch Show Moving Right Along

    And All Was Right With the World

    It's been known that a Discworld television show based in the fictional city of Ankh-Morpork and the cast of characters it is associated with has been in various stages of preproduction discussion for more than a year now. In fact, there's even video evidence of Sir Terry Pratchett talking with writers about coppers starting up an inter-species band, the trickiness of humane prisoner treatment, and what it might be like to have the undead coming in to file reports on their own murders.

    But last weekend the annual Discworld convention was held in Birmingham, England, and it promised a panel hosted by the team behind BBC Worldwide's fabled Discworld project, and an announcement.

  10. 10 Worst Case Casting Scenarios

    Power Grid

    Whenever we hear about a movie being remade, or a book being turned into a movie that probably should just be left alone, or a TV show that has no business being made into a movie, the next thing we do, after swallow a small amount of bile, is wonder who will be cast in this abomination. Sometimes, you luck out (see: J.J. Abrams' Star Trek). But sometimes, you cringe at the thought of who might be stepping into a role (see: M. Night Shyamalan's Avatar: The Last Airbender), or what childhood memories would be crushed next (21 Jump Street). Since we're gluttons for punishment, and sometimes stay up all night worrying about these kinds of things, we're going to share 10 Worst Case Scenario movie adaptations and reboots of how Hollywood could go totally wrong.
