Remembering Terry Pratchett
had passed away of complications from Alzheimer's Disease. He was 66 years old.
Ironically enough, Death was one of Pratchett's characters, appearing as a little less scary and a bit witty. Apparently his family worked the character, whom always spoke in his story in capital letters, into the announcement of his departure on his Twitter account. At 3:06PM appeared, "AT LAST SIR TERRY, WE MUST WALK TOGETHER."
October 2008 as TerryPratchett Morpork for a Question and Answer session with his fans. Questions included whether he liked the idea of a Diskworld MMO, to which he answered, " no. Early in 2003 we had approaches from about 5 or 6 games developers. I told them all to go away and knock up something that would show me that they had a grip on what Discworld would be about, and none of them came back."
A memorial to Pratchett has been set up in Time and Space (99/101/300). On change.org, fans started a petition asking Death to return Pratchett. So his fans are staying in good humor.
