Earlier this week, I finished reading a book by Terry Pratchett called Mrs Bradshaw's Handbook to Travelling Upon the Ankh-Morpork & Sto Plains Hygienic Railway. The book was referred to in a recent Discworld novel, Raising Steam which dealt with the Discworld coping with the onslaught of railroads. There's a bit of amusement here, but it's not an adventure, just a variety of very short pieces about the destinations covered by the fictional railway. Not a book I'd give someone who hasn't read other Discworld novels.
