Farewell, Sir Terry Pratchett

pratchettAT LAST, SIR TERRY, WE MUST WALK TOGETHER.

Terry took Death’s arm, and followed him through the doors and on to the black desert under the endless night.
The End.

A fond farewell to one of my favorite authors.  His creativity and quirky insight will be deeply missed.

  1. I heard the news on the radio when I was driving home yesterday. Absolutely gutted, he’s been a favourite author of mine since I was a teenager. 😦

  2. So true. He wore a hat like no other. Everyone afraid of death should read Mort.

  3. His books were one of the few points I had in common with my son when he was a teenager. We both are addicted to bad word plays – like the scone of stone. And I loved Pratchett’s ability to send up less than wonderful human traits without sneering or nastiness. Your collection of his books looks well read.

    • They are indeed. And that is only a small portion of the collection (which now has many ebooks as well). I always loved how Pratchett could write ridiculous, over the top characters and scenarios that somehow still are true at a very fundamental level.

  4. A great author and a great human, his stories inspired me in many ways, from my youth to my adult years. Your collection looks wonderful, I think I may dip into some discworld soon as it’s been a while. The man who gave us Rincewind, Captain Vimes, Tiffany Aching and the Librarian – he’s off on the great disc in the sky.
