1948 – 2015

Terry Pratchett was an amazing author of the Discworld series; which is a series that includes around 41 books. In 2007 Terry was diagnosed with an embuggerance (Alzheimer’s Disease) and even though he thought he had little time left he continued to write his stories for us to read. He wrote 5 books before his death in March 2015.

AT 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.

To me I will remember everything I were doing when I found out. I was at work sat in my office, waiting for my colleague to come back so we could go finish of a job. He came back into the office and told me Sir Terry Pratchett had died. I stopped what I was doing and shouted at him for making up a horrible story to get on my nerves. We had been talking about terry throughout the day before as a client of mine noticed my Discworld wallpaper on my laptop. I wouldn’t believe him and couldn’t check the news. I was scared. When I finally brought myself to check I wanted to cry (damn onion fairy). I honestly didn’t know what to do. My second reaction was but what about granny and the wizards and Discworld.

To me even though Sir Terry is no longer here,  I am going to cherish everything he has written even more. The Turtle hasn’t stopped moving and he hasn’t gone. He lives on through his books and his fans, as long as we still read and still stay his name, the turtle will still continue to move and he will still live on.


A truly inspiring man none of us Discworld fans will ever forget.
