It is with immeasurable sadness that we announce that author Sir Terry Pratchett has died at the age of 66.
Larry Finlay, MD at
"I was deeply saddened to
learn that Sir Terry Pratchett has died. The world has lost one of its
brightest, sharpest minds.
In over 70 books, Terry
enriched the planet like few before him. As all who read him know, Discworld was
his vehicle to satirize this world: he did so brilliantly, with great
skill, enormous humour and constant invention.
Terry faced his Alzheimer's
disease (an 'embuggerance', as he called it) publicly and bravely. Over the last
few years, it was his writing that sustained him. His legacy will endure for
decades to come.
My sympathies go out to
Terry's wife Lyn, their daughter Rhianna, to his close friend Rob Wilkins, and
to all closest to him."
Terry passed away in his
home, with his cat sleeping on his bed surrounded by his family on 12th March
2015. Diagnosed with PCA  in 2007, he battled the progressive disease with
his trademark determination and creativity, and continued to write. He completed
his last book, a new Discworld novel, in the summer of 2014, before succumbing
to the final stages of the disease.
We ask that the family are left
undisturbed at this distressing time.
