Terry Pratchett 1948-2015

Sir Terry Pratchett, author of the Discworld series quietly passed away this morning, having fought a battle with early onset Alzheimers, which, in a manner of speaking, he won.  You see, he succeeded in completing his last novel The Sheppherds Crown shortly before his passing. It will be published posthumously. 




Pratchett leaves behind a vast body of work that has brought and will continue to bring joy to millions. He also had a fossil sea turtle named in his honor and a greenhouse full of carnivorous plants, because he was just that awesome a person. 

A great man has passed, but in both his work and his life, he inspired many of the great people to come.
