Terry Pratchett dies aged 66

12 Mar, 2015

The author dies at home, surrounded by his family, after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. His publisher, Larry Findlay:

The world has lost one of its brightest, sharpest minds. In over 70 books, Terry enriched the planet like few before him. As all who read him know, Discworld was his vehicle to satirize this world: He did so brilliantly, with great skill, enormous humour and constant invention.¬†Terry faced his Alzheimer’s disease (an ’embuggerance’, as he called it) publicly and bravely. Over the last few years, it was his writing that sustained him. His legacy will endure for decades to come.
