Terry Pratchett is best known for the “Discworld” novels – if you are already a fan then they need no introduction. If you aren’t, then you are seriously missing out.
How to describe them? “Comic fantasy” is far too vague, so imagine if Douglas Adams had called PG Wodehouse, Frankie Howerd, Terry Gilliam and the Monty Python team to the pub and said “Listen lads, we’re going to write a book” and you are probably almost there. More recently, Terry Pratchett has become known for his fund-raising and campaigning work as he suffers from Alzheimer’s Disease.
