Fantasy Author – Terry Pratchett:


Lived and breathed his passion, and assembled a vast array of information used for referencing – His own personal library was extensive. Terry used this collected information to build and write his stories.

A prolific writer of his time, he had a unique humorous style that he had and is still loved for today.

Within his Discworld series he created 41 novels. Terry's first novel The Carpet People was published in 1971.

A World Created On A Turtle:

A world Pratchett created as a turtle, supporting four elephants, which in turn supported his discworld on their backs. Based utilising many myths of old.

A combination resulting in the amazing fantasy world evolving, sparking a plethora of ideas, resulting in his well loved, and well followed books, and still ongoing conventions.

Films and T.V. Shows:

Pratchett's film and T.V. Shows included his titled works – Hogfather, Soul Music, Going Postal, The Colour of Magic, Wyrd Sisters, Johnny and the Dead, Terry Pratchett's Unseen Academicals, and Troll Bridge.

Short Stories:

His short stories series included – Troll Bridge, Death and What Comes Next, Theatre of Cruelty, The Sea and Little Fishes.

In his later years, he lived with his wife assisting him through his years of Alzheimer's. disease in his final creations. His final discworld novel – The Shepherd's Crown was published in August 2015, five moths after his passing.

At his early-onset diagnostic of the Alzheimer's' disease, he was filmed for a BBC television programme, chronicling this experience. Terry also made a substantial public donation to the Alzheimer's Research Trust.

Born: 28th April 1948 – Died: 12th March 2015, aged 66.

Just a final note for today:

My own personal journey is in the discovering of Terry's discworld series, of which I have read many, but not all of these hilariously entertaining books. I would very much recommend if you haven't dipped into this world and, it is vibrating with you, do check these out.
