“Stories of imagination tend to upset those without one.”
Terry Pratchett, 1948-2015
UPDATE: Aug. 26, 2005: New Discworld book hits stores Sept. 1
Fans of the late Terry Pratchett will be happy to know his latest (and sadly last) Discworld book, The Shepherd’s Crown, will hit bookshelves Sept. 1. His assistant, Rob Wilkins, says Pratchett had notes for four other novels in the series. However, the family has no intentions of seeing those novels finished. His daughter, Rhianna, said: “I’ll work on adaptations, spin-offs, maybe tie-ins, but the books are sacred to dad. That’s it. Discworld is his legacy. I shall make my own.”
