Chronolgy

A Terry Pratchett Chronology

The first version of this chronology was published in the 2013 North American Discworld Convention Program Guide and it has since been updated and much expanded. In general, this list is a chronology of publications, rather than a personal chronology, and is mostly limited to the principal editions of Terry’s books in the English language in the UK and USA. The American publication dates are complicated by the publishers having release dates (the date they leave the publisher’s warehouse) followed by on-sale (when the booksellers are certain to have copies).

A number of the first US titles in the Discworld series only appeared in paperback and book club editions, and there are still some titles that have never been published as trade hard-covers, so in those cases the first US trade edition would have been a Signet or Roc paperback (they were first published under NAL’s Signet imprint and then transferred to Roc) or in a SF Book Club edition, and I have included details of these where the first hardcover edition appearing in the US was a book club edition.

Initially, before The Fifth Elephant (the twenty-fourth novel) caught up with British publication dates, HarperCollins’s schedule was slightly erratic as to the order in which they were published in relation to when the books were written and published in the UK.[1] I have also included independent titles about Terry’s work. The list does not include audiobooks, abridged or unabridged.

NOTE: all Corgi publications are UK paperbacks, Delacorte is an imprint of RandomHouse US, while Doubleday is the British publisher, not the American one, unless otherwise stated. HarperCollins is the American publisher, not the English. For clarity as to which are American paperbacks, I have used the term HarperPbks to cover all paperback Harper imprints, including HarperPrism. HarperTorch, HarperTeen, HarperVoyager and Harper. Some imprint names were changed for reprints, and HarperPrism was used for both hardcover and paperbacks. There appears to be no consistency in their use, but doubtless it is a question of marketing.
