    Most of us grow up having always known to touch wood or cross our fingers, and what happens when a princess kisses a frog or a boy pulls a sword from a stone, yet sadly, some of these things are now beginning to be forgotten. Legends, myths, and fairy tales: our world is made up of the stories we told ourselves about where we came from and how we got there. It is the same on Discworld, except that beings which on Earth are creatures of the imagination - like vampires, trolls, witches, and possibly, gods - are real, alive and in some cases kicking on the Disc.

    What did you love best about The Folklore of Discworld?

    I liked the depth of the details given by Sir Terry Pratchett and Jacqueline Simpson. I have read most of Sir Terry Pratchett's books and I can honestly say that I did not make half of the connections that he included in his books. That is what makes his books great, you can read a book multiple times and peel an additional layer of the onion off of the great storyline.


    What other book might you compare The Folklore of Discworld to and why?

    Any of the other Discworld books.


    Have you listened to any of Michael Fenton Stevens’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first one that I have listened to.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The new and old adages of Discworld and Earth

    The Western Front, 1916. Private Percy Blakeney wakes up. He is lying on fresh spring grass. He can hear birdsong and the wind in the leaves. Where have the mud, blood, and blasted landscape of no-man's-land gone? For that matter, where has Percy gone? Madison, Wisconsin, 2015. Police officer Monica Jansson is exploring the burned-out home of a reclusive - some say mad, others allege dangerous - scientist who seems to have vanished. Sifting through the wreckage, Jansson find a curious gadget.

    If you could sum up The Long Earth in three words, what would they be?

    The Long Earth


    What other book might you compare The Long Earth to and why?

    I would compare the Long Earth to the TV show Sliders with a twist. I know it's not a book, but it is similar.
