The only place in the multiverse where an elephant has to cock a leg to let the sun go by. The Discworld is the fictional creation of Terry Pratchett (who lives in Wiltshire in the UK). It is a planet (well, the creator was just making a pizza but carried away as you do) which is flat and revolves on the backs of four giant elephants who in turn stand of the back of the Star Turtle.

It is also the title of a hugely popular series of books (the 25th in the series is due out near the end of 2000AD) including the Colour of Magic and Mort (which is reputed to be better in the German translation).

A new book in the series is almost guaranteed to rocket straight to number one in the book charts.
