Terry Pratchett has died at 66. And this blog is slowly becoming a list of obituaries. As much as I’d like to resist adding a new Obituaries category, Death is in fact my favourite Discworld character, along with Susan Sto Helit who is obviously also related to Death. Terry Pratchett was diagnosed with PCA, a particulary nasty form of Alzheimer’s. He has been contemplating assisted suicide but has instead died a Victorian death.
“DON’T THINK OF IT AS DYING, said Death. JUST THINK OF IT AS LEAVING EARLY TO AVOID THE RUSH.”
― Terry Pratchett, Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch
