Great A’Tuin, the Giant Star Turtle, is floating through space, carrying four massive elephants on its massive back, who are in turn holding up the Discworld. Water from the oceans is sloshing over the rim into space, as you’d expect from water covering a disc-shaped mass of land.]
The Discworld series is a collection of fantasy novels by Terry Pratchett, set in a fictional world which resembles our own in very many ways, except with more magic. There are currently 40 Discworld novels, and if that’s a little overwhelming for new fans, there’s a helpful Reading Order Guide which gathers up all books into a manageable number of main arcs and themes.

Filled with witches and politics and Death and higher education and a wide array of guilds (the Assassins’ Guild being considerably less terrifying than the Fools’ Guild), the Discworld is your fannish oyster. And while the series may or may not have started out as a lighthearted parody of the fantasy genre, “Terry Pratchett hasn’t been an escapist writer for quite some time. He’ll amuse you, sure; but he won’t tell you that things are great just the way they are, or that they’re hopeless and there’s nothing you can do. He’ll tell you that you — yes, you — should make them better. And then he’ll do something even more radical. He’ll make you think you can.” (source)

"The vague silhouette demanded, ‘The police? Here? Pull the other leg, mate! Who do you think you are? Bloody Commander Vimes?’
The barge bucked again and an errant egg spun out of the darkness and smacked into Vimes’s face. He wiped it off, or at least spread it around a bit, and said, ‘Well, well, sir, are you always this lucky?’" - Snuff, Terry Pratchett
