Today is a sad day to book fans the world over. Sir Terry Prachett was one of my favourite authors growing up and in fact the first author signing I went to was to meet him. Wyrd sisters is one of my favourite books. Publically Prachett came of as a loveable old man but he was also fighting alzimers a disease that essentially strips you of all you are. Yet he continued to publish work until the very end.

Sir Pratchett was one of the founders of fantasy and nobody has ever written quite like him all I can say is thank you for bringing magic into my life.
