Fair winds and following seas on your final journey, Terry Pratchett!

Sad news: Terry Pratchett died today from Alzheimer’s disease at the age of 66. He was among the most successful and prolific fantasy writers of his generation: he published over 70 books that sold 75 million copies worldwide. His most notable accomplishment was the “Discworld” series, a witty parody of classic fantasy works such as “Conan the Barbarian” series by Robert E. Howard and “The Lord of the Rings” by J. R. R. Tolkien. Now he walks with one of the most colorful characters from his novels – Death himself.


Terry, we wish you fair winds and following seas on your final journey. You will be missed!
