What could be easier than preventing a servant girl from marrying a prince, especially for 3 clever witches? But Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, and Magrat Garlick face more than they bargained for when they journey to the distant city of Genua. For one thing, their power is limited to Mrs. Gogol's weak voodoo spells, a one-eyed cat, and a second-hand magic wand that only works on pumpkins.

I’m not sure if I’m far enough into Discworld to proclaim my favorite subseries yet, but Witches is the top contender. As with th...
"Witches Aboard" follows the Lancre coven across the Disc to the Big Easy, well Terry Pratchett's version of the Bayou, as they attempt to save the day by not allowing the servant girl to marry the Prince. The happily-ever-after and fairy godmother tropes do not survive either Pratchett or Granny We...
We follow Granny, Nanny, and Magrat as they travel to Genua and subvert the narratives of all the stories they encounter on their way. This one gets extra points for the "pray" exchange, some Granny awesomeness, and a solid ending (well, as solid as you're going to get in a swamp, anyway). Plus some...
