Terry Pratchett died

After years of fighting Alzheimer’s disease while still writing amazing books, one of the best English authors ever died on Thursday.
BBC: Sir Terry Pratchett, renowned fantasy author, dies aged 66
In my book, he was one of the best because he had the gift which few have. Like Kurt Vonnegut, he could use a genre which is by definition fantastic to create books mirroring real life in being a blend of funny and serious moments. And because his viewpoints were very much in tune with mine. But mostly because those books are simply damn well-written.
