Terry Pratchett is now Sir Terry Pratchett, after the New Year Honours list awarded him a knighthood for “services to literature”.

Terry Pratchett was said to be “flabbergasted” at the honour.

It comes only a year after it was revealed he had early-onset Alzheimer’s disease, and (Sir) Terry has already been tirelessly campaign for Alzheimer’s research.

Terry Pratchett may be known to some readers as a fantasy author, but literary agent John Jarrold pointed out that to many, he is simply a best selling author.

Having sold over 55 million books worldwide, that is some fair achievement for any knight of the realm.
