I was deeply saddened to hear the news of Terry Pratchett being diagnosed with a rare form of early Alzheimer’s disease.  Pratchett’s wonderful works have been a constant inspiration to me since I first stumbled upon a battered copy of Mort some eighteen years ago.  And yet, in typical Pratchett fashion he has taken the news standing tall and with a little twinkle in his eye.  Making Money is on my Christmas list, so I hope to be reading that by Boxing Day.


You’re a great bloke, Terry.  All the best.
