Rest in Peace, Terry Pratchett (28 April 1948 – 12 March 2015)

Once again, my heart is heavy as I have the passing of another living legend to report:
Sir Terence David John “Terry” Pratchett, OBE passed away today at the age of 66, far too early.

His work has been an integral part of the literature I enjoy ever since I first read Guards! Guards! back in 1998 in a little house in Chandos Street, Nottingham. I have not missed a single discworld novel since and I mourn not only Terry’s passing but also the witty, social commentary filled fantasy stories that will never be written.

Terry, I hope you met some friends on the other side and were greeted by a cheerful SQUEAK!
