Terry Pratchett

And today an author I loved but unfortunately never managed to meet. For anyone who isn't aware yet, Sir Terry Pratchett passed away today. Guardian article and BBC article. BBC radio 4 selection of programmes in his honour.

I have so many memories tied to his books, each book a new friend, and so many things I learnt and new ways of seeing the world... I read my first Pratchett book in spite of the front cover, and that was the book that taught me not to judge a book by it's cover and that books could actually make you laugh out loud. He managed to make me laugh a whole lot over the years and now he's finally made me cry. A world without Terry Pratchett, even though his 'embuggerance' has been public knowledge for so long, just doesn't compute.
