The folklore of Discworld : legends, myths, and customs from the Discworld with helpful hints from planet Earth by Terry Pratchett( Book )
26 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 360 libraries worldwide
The Folklore of Discworld, coauthored by Terry Pratchett and leading British folklorist Jacqueline Simpson, is an invaluable reference for longtime Discworld fans and newcomers alike. An irreverent yet illuminating look at the living myths and folklore that are reflected, celebrated, and affectionately libeled in the uniquely imaginative universe of Discworld. Legends, myths, fairytales, superstitions. Our world is full of the stories we have told ourselves about where we came from and how we got there. It is the same on Discworld, except that beings such as vampires, trolls, golems, witches and, possibly, gods, which on Earth are creatures of the imagination, are real, alive, and in some cases kicking on the Disc. --

"England's history echoes with stories of unquiet spirits and hauntings, of headless highwaymen and grey ladies, of indelible bloodstains and premonitions of death. Here, county by county and place by place, Jennifer Westwood and Jacqueline Simpson gather together all the most interesting supernatural tales from The Lore of the Land. From a ghostly army marching across Cumbria and landlords' appeals against rates (because no one will rent their haunted houses), to Francis Drake's drum summoning him when England is in danger, these fascinating and unforgettable stories are part of our legendary past - and present."--Jacket
