Never to be Forgotten: Sir Terry Pratchett 1948-2015
His best known books are the Discworld series, set on a flat earth balanced on the backs of four elephants who stand on the back of an even more massive turtle. The first book in the series, The Colour of Magic, was published in 1983. The stories spoof the conventions of fantasy seen in Tolkien and Lovecraft and many more. My favorite work of his is his collaboration with Neil Gaiman, the 1990 novel Good Omens, a story of Armageddon gone very askew.
Best wishes to the friends and family of Sir Terry Pratchett, from a fan. Both for his writing and for being the public face of Alzheimer's, he is never to be forgotten.
