Terry Pratchett was an English author who is best known for his Discworld comic fantasy series.

Terry Pratchett sadly passed away on March 12th, 2015.

Pratchett battled Alzheimer’s disease for years after announcing it online in 2007. He died after a chest infection, as well as complications from the Alzheimers.

In true Terry Pratchett style, he had tweets posted on his Twitter immediately following his death. The Tweets stated:

“Terry took Death’s arm and followed him through the doors and on to the black desert under the endless night.”

“AT LAST SIR TERRY, WE MUST WALK TOGETHER.”

“The End.”

Pratchett had his first short story published when he was 15 and had been writing ever since. He has been focused on his Discworld series since 1983 with nearly 40 books in the series. He has also written several children’s novels and other standalone novels. Many consider Pratchett to be the funniest writer of the last few decades.

Terry Pratchett was a very prolific novelist and his books are enjoyed by readers of all ages worldwide. Below is the order in which Terry Pratchett’s novels have been released in:

    Unfortunately some of your information here is wrong. “The play Terry Pratchett’s Hogfather was co-authored by Vadim Jean.” is not a play by the Sky TV adaptation of which Vadim was the director. The book accompanying the adaptation is a screenplay not a Play script. There are too many books missing off this list for me to actually bother listing but the main ones are the graphic novels of which there are 5.

    I am not ashamed to admit I cried my eyes out when I heard Sir Terry had passed away. He was a world class writer and also unbeknownst to a lot of readers one of the most popular and best selling authors in the world. His books are in over 30 languages. For those who think of just ‘fantasy’ books they are not. They are skillful satires of the modern world with its fads, trends, celebrities, politics and countries. Sir Terry had a wide ranging vocabulary and loved words. Plus he had an encyclopedic knowledge of folk lore of various countries. If you read the books you will soon see what I mean. Although the “Discworld” is supposed to be a flat world people by humans, dwarfs, trolls, witches and the like it is something completely different. Like movies? Read “Moving Pictures” and how the ‘Clicks” came to the Discworld and they were entranced by that epic of the Discworld civil war “Blown Away” though why there is a huge man eating white shark in it is anyone’s guess. Like rock music? Try Soul Music. Been to Australia? Try “The Last Continent” Once you read them I guarantee you will be hooked.

      You know what i like about this page? 🙂

      For most of the other authors i see an, ‘If you like this author you may also like these authors’ line.

      That isn’t here, pratchett was unique, and about the only thing which matches up to his novels are his own novels, which are in an endless loop on my reading list 🙂
