Slice is a village in Lancre. In Maskerade, Granny Weatherwax said that its population is seven, but this may have been hyperbole. Like other Lancre towns such as Razorback, Mad Wolf, Blackglass, Mad Stoat, and Powderknife, Slice is mentioned several times in Wyrd Sisters, Witches Abroad, Lords and Ladies, and Maskerade, but never actually features in the stories.

In The Shepherd's Crown, it is mentioned that Slice has a market in which anything can be bought or sold. Allegedly, a man once traded his wife there for an old wheelbarrow and left thinking he had gotten the upper hand in the deal.

Slice is also the home of Mr. Sideways, an old man whom Geoffrey helps when going 'round the houses. Mr. Sideways complains about needing a space away from his wife, which prompts Geoffrey to build him a shed which serves as a combination workshop and mancave.
