I am very sad to know we lost Terry Pratchett, the author who created Disc World and so many wonderful characters and situations. His web site is down at the moment (probably crashed the server from so many hits), but the BBC announcement mentions a few facts that most authors can only dream of. 70 books translated into 37 languages with total sales so far of 70 million books. And that’s not even counting his stories turned into movies, animations, or TV specials. He was brilliant and funny and I will miss his voice in the world.
