It is with true sadness that I report the death of Sir Terry Pratchett, at the age of 66. It is sadness for me, because I love his work beyond that of any other. Because reading Thud! transported me to a wonderful world and a literary journey that will impact my life forever. His barbed wit was apparent in novels for both children and adults, and I have loved them all.
I am happy for him, however, because I know he wanted nothing more than to escape his brain that was slowly being ravaged by Alzheimer’s, taking away that quick mind and sly humour.
Thank you, Sir Terry, for all of the joy you have given me. May you rest in peace, and may the goddess Anoia watch over you.
