* Briefly referenced in ''Discworld/TheShepherdsCrown'' as available for the lumberjacks in the remote forest areas of the Ramtops. This being the Literature/{{Discworld}}, the "mail-order" bit is taken entirely literally, with the brides available from the same catalogue the lumberjacks use to buy everything else.
