As he has always been one of the most charming and good natured visitors to our author events program, our thoughts are with our friend Terry Pratchett, who was diagnosed with a "very rare form of early onset Alzheimer's." His note is from the 11th of December on the "Discworld News" page.
Here's the post script.
"PS I would just like to draw attention to everyone reading the above that this should be interpreted as 'I am not dead'. I will, of course, be dead at some future point, as will everybody else. For me, this maybe further off than you think — it's too soon to tell. I know it's a very human thing to say 'Is there anything I can do', but in this case I would only entertain offers from very high-end experts in brain chemistry."
Feel free to use the comments section to share some thoughts of your own. As with a Pratchett signing, Goths go first.
