    Sir Terence David John Pratchett

    Terry Pratchett would have been 75 today. Taken far too early, sadly missed.

    Some early short stories to be (re-)published

    Sir Terry's unfinished work was destroyed, but it seems we'll soon be able to buy some short stories of his which we're unlikely to have read, as they were published in a regional newspaper under a pseudonym, and are now to be brought out in a new anthology...

    Small Gods by Sir Terry Pratchett

    By way of introductory remarks, let me state that I’ve been sitting on the chance to review Terry Pratchett’s Small Gods for a while, savouring the chance to have my say about one of the most universally respected Discworld books. The reason for that respect lies equally in the premise and the...

    The Long Mars by Stephen Baxter and Terry Pratchett

    The third book in the Long Earth series, Long Mars continues the story of humanity’s discovery, exploration and exploitation of the multi-universe parallel Earths and now Marses (as a word never designed to be pluralised this is what the authors went with). It’s hard to know what more to say as...

    Unseen Academicals by Terry Pratchett

    Football is the main focus of Unseen Academicals but, as always, all sorts of other subjects receive broadsides from Terry Pratchett’s satirical pen along the way. The staff of Unseen University must field a football team to launch a new and somewhat more controlled style of football as compared...

    Bick's thoughts on the Discworld novels

    I was in the middle of reading other books, and had quite different plans, and then I made the mistake of picking up a Discworld book and read a few pages, found myself dragged into it and ended up reading it in a day or so. I then pulled the next one down off the shelf and read that similarly...

    Review: the long earth by terry pratchett and stephen baxter

    Terry Pratchett is so well known for his Discworld novels that it is hard to know how to react when he steps out from under their shadow and tries something totally different. This is very much the case where he teams up with noted science fiction writer Stephen Baxter to write the Long Earth...

According to rumour, he'd already begun working on the next Tiffany Aching Discworld novel, I Shall Wear Midnight, but upon hearing...
