All over the internet yesterday was the news that the author of the Discworld series of books, Terry Pratchett, has announced on his website that he is suffering from early onset alzheimers. Mr Pratchett instructed that this statement should be taken as 'I'm not dead!'
The open letter on his site entitled 'An Embuggerance' stated that 'there was time for a few new books' and 'Frankly I would prefer it if people kept things cheerful.'
My son obliged Mr Pratchett when he was informed of the news by announcing 'Well, that should make for an interesting couple of novels.'
We wish Terry all the best....Ook!
