  • All the best wishes for good luck and good health to Terry Pratchett.

    This sucks big time, but Terry Pratchett has early onset Alzheimer's.

    From Terry:



    AN EMBUGGERANCE Folks,

    I would have liked to keep this one quiet for a little while, but because of upcoming conventions and of course the need to keep my publishers informed, it seems to me unfair to withhold the news. I have been diagnosed with a very rare form of early onset Alzheimer's, which lay behind this year's phantom "stroke".

    We are taking it fairly philosophically down here and possibly with a mild optimism. For now work is continuing on the completion of Nation and the basic notes are already being laid down for Unseen Academicals. All other things being equal, I expect to meet most current and, as far as possible, future commitments but will discuss things with the various organisers. Frankly, I would prefer it if people kept things cheerful, because I think there's time for at least a few more books yet :o)



    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.

    I read about this on Neil Gaiman's journal. Prachett has some time. I expect more good work from him.
