Prior to writing about the Discworld, Terry Pratchett wrote about the worlds of Strata, and Carpet People and later the Bromeliad Trilogy (Truckers, Diggers, Wings).

These settings have not seen as much love and attention as the Discworld, but has anyone extended these universes into other novels or stories?

I'm thinking in a similar way that the Cthulhu mythos has grown over the years.

    Well, there's Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch his joint effort with Neil Gaiman. – dmckee Apr 10 '12 at 22:45
  • @dmckee But that doesn't extend any of the titles above does it? – AncientSwordRage Apr 10 '12 at 23:42
  • Nope. But it has the same kind of whimsy. – dmckee Apr 10 '12 at 23:45

    One reason the Cthulhu mythos has grown so much is that Lovecraft permitted -- nay, actively encouraged -- other writers to have fun in his playground. His estate follows the same policy. Pratchett hasn't done anything like that. – sjl Oct 22 '12 at 6:19

    @Pureferret - Well, the dwarves in the Discworld series have mined well below the depth of the techno-layer in Strata. – Valorum Jan 16 '15 at 11:02

[...] has anyone extended these universes into other novels or stories?

No, I don't think so.

Of course, there might be some fanfic out there somewhere, but I seriously doubt it. Most of the fandom concentrates on what's by far the largest part of Pratchett's output: Discworld.

  • Not quite true. I'm told there's plenty of Aziraphale/Crowly slash out there for the reading if you're into that kind of thing. – TRiG Nov 29 '12 at 2:13
