Sir Terry Pratchett Dies, Aged 66

Sir Terry Pratchett has passed away, his publicist has confirmed,

The author had been battling Alzheimer’s Disease since 2007.

Born in Buckinghamshire in 1968, Pratchett’s greatest work was his Discworld series, which started with The Colour of Magic in 1983 and has since seen a total of 40 books released, with the last being Raising Steam in 2013. It was confirmed last August that the 41st Discworld novel would be entitled The Shepherd’s Crown.

Several of his works have been adapted for television, with Hogfather, The Colour of Magic and Going Postal airing on Sky One in 2006, 2008 and 2010 respectively.

Larry Finlay, of his publishers Transworld, paid tribute to the author;

“The world has lost one of its brightest, sharpest minds. He enriched the planet like few before him and through Discworld, satirised the world with great skill, enormous humour and constant invention.

Terry faced his Alzheimer’s disease publicly and bravely. Over the last few years, it was his writing that sustained him. His legacy will endure for decades to come.”

Pratchett is survived by his wife Lyn and daughter Rhianna.
