I don't really know if it's popular or not. I have a friend that introduced me to the Discworld. I see that Discworld novels are very rare on the bookshop shelfs and it's quickly exhausted, so I guess it must be popular or it wouldn't sell. And it seems that the next novel they translate gets more and more expensive...I guess they do that because they know it's going to sell.

Terry Pratchett is really popular in England too he has lots of fans. An with good reason I've never read a bad book by him he never disappoints. Whenever he releases a new book there are promotions in book shops for it he must sell millions of books around the world.

I don't know how popular the books are, but I imagine they are pretty popular since all the libraries I've been to carry most of them. I love his sense of humor, particularly in the footnotes. Some of the books in the series are farily good social commentary as well.
