Terry Pratchett, make that Sir Terry Pratchett, was visited by one of his creations, Death, this past March. The world of fantasy and humour are worse off for that visitation.
I wouldn’t say that I am his biggest fan, I’ve only read 35 of his 41 Discworld novels and four or five of his non-Discworld novels. I haven’t read any of the companion books, for example (Science of… Nanny Ogg’s Cookbook… etc.). So you know, I’ve only read about forty of his books. So I guess I’m not a big fan… ;-)
… but even I know that Terry not only left a rich world, he left one full of interesting, yet untold, stories.
