Terry Pratchett - RIP

BBC News - Sir Terry Pratchett, renowned fantasy author, dies aged 66

Sir Terry's writing gave me endless hours of amusement and often encouraged me to think about things differently. RIBnet reminds me of Discworld more than it should...

Real shame. Brought such a different slant to things. A very sharp humour.

A fitting final announcement from his twitter account:-


Terry took Death’s arm and followed him through the doors and on to the black desert under the endless night.

The End.
