Bohs Hansen / 2 years ago
The fantasy author and creator of the Discworld series, Sir Terry Pratchett has died aged 66, eight years after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Sir Pratchett stayed active until the end, his last book being completed just last summer and he wrote more than 70 books during his career.
“The world has lost one of its brightest, sharpest minds,” said Larry Finlay of his publishers Transworld. “The author died at home, surrounded by his family, with his cat sleeping on his bed.”
There is no doubt that we’ve lost another of the ‘big’ ones too early. “He enriched the planet through Discworld satirised world, enormous humour and constant invention,” said Mr Finlay. The announcement of his death was made on Sir Terry’s Twitter account where his daughter later thanked for all the kind words about her father.
