Criticism, biography, commentary
- Terry Pratchett Guilty of Literature. The Science Fiction Foundation, 2000, edited by Andrew M. Butler, Edward James and Farah Mendlesohn.
- So You Think You Know Discworld Hodder Children's Books, 2006, by Clive Gifford. Unofficial quiz book unlike the other two by Dave Langford which were endorsed by Terry.
- An Unofficial Companion to the Novels of Terry Pratchett Greenwood World Publishing, 2007, Andrew M. Butler.
- Terry Pratchett (Writers Uncovered) Heinemann Library, 2007, Vic Parker.
- The Turtle Moves. Benbella Books, 2008, by American commentator on all things Pratchett, Lawrence Watt-Evans
- Secrets of The Wee Free Men and Discworld: The Myths and Legends of Terry Pratchett's Multiverse by Carrie Pyykkonen and Linda Washington, 2008, St. Martin's Griffin.
- Terry Pratchett-The Spirit of Fantasy by Craig Cabell, John Blake Publishing, 2011. (£17.99 UK). An entertaining and well-written book about Terry, part unauthorised biography, part literary criticism. Rumour has it this book has landed in remaindered bins at less than a fiver, a fate something as good as this does not deserve. (But see Amazon "customer reviews" for some violent disagreement.)?
- Philosophy and Terry Pratchett edited by Jacob Held and James South, 2014, Palgrave Macmillan.
- Discworld and the Disciplines: Critical Approaches to the Terry Pratchett Works by Anne Hiebert Alton and William C. Spruiell, 2014, McFarland & Co Inc.
- In Memory: A Tribute To Sir Terry Pratchett by Sorin Suciu (editor), 2015, CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform.
- Discworld and Philosophy by Nicolas Michaud (editor), 2016, Cricket Books.
- Fan fiction
- TV tropes - a really neat and entertaining site discussing the recurring "tropes", ie literary shortcuts, stereotypes and literary conventions present in TV, literature and art. A lot of space is given over to Pratchett's work, detailing how the tropes, those conventions, hooks and short-cuts present in the universal consciousness of all creative writers, work in the Discworld.
