The End.— Terry Pratchett (@terryandrob) March 12, 2015
Sir Terry Pratchett, the author of the Discworld series of fantasy novels, passed away today at the age of 66. He was at home, “with his cat sleeping on his bed surrounded by his family.” Pratchett had been suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, diagnosed in 2007. His publisher released a statement that said, in part:
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.
My sympathies go out to Terry's wife Lyn, their daughter Rhianna, to his close friend Rob Wilkins, and to all closest to him."
