As you will all know by now, British author Sir Terry Pratchett died recently (12 March 2015), but not before leaving us with (at the very least) some 40 Discworld fantasy novels, not to mention short stories and other collaborations ('Good Omens' with Neil Gaiman, for instance).
Do you have any particular favourite moments?
I have to say although I've only read a handful of the books in that series, the definition of 'headology' given by the witch, Granny Weatherwax in the novel *Wyrd Sisters* is one that stands out for me. In short, this involved telling someone who had done you wrong that something bad would happen to them ... so the next time they stub their toe or break a pitcher of fresh milk they'll immediately think back to the moment of the curse and assume it was the power of the witch who did it. Neat indeed. My other favourite was 'Mort' – not so much a particular scene, although I was amused by the stables and also by the fact that Death enjoys scratching cats behind the ears, but more the whole thing. The daughter in the story was a wonderful creation.
I haven't read anything of Terry Pratchett. I know crazy right? haha
Well, not crazy really - to be fair he might well be a UK rather than an international phenomena ...
