    Can anyone recommend any books that discuss the connections between philosophy and Fantasy literature? I'm especially interested in how Terry Pratchett's Discworld books engage with philosophical questions.

    I can't think of any books/publications that would address these questions - best you'll find is die-hard Discworld forums or philosophy sites which might well go into more depth on the connections.
