Terry Pratchett's final Discworld book, The Shepherd's Crown, is to be published this year.

The book is the fifth in a self-contained young adult series set on the Discworld, following the adventures of witch Tiffany Aching.

Prachett, who died at his home in Wiltshire in March, completed The Shepherd's Crown last July. It will be published on September 10.

Tom Weldon, CEO of Penguin Random House, said it was a "huge privilege" to be publishing the book.

"Terry's writing is loved and respected the world over and this publication will be an incredibly important and special event for us all at Penguin Random House, and for fans and readers everywhere."
