While this is well outside the world of anime and manga, I really do feel the need to say something about the death of this great man. Yesterday, March 12th, Terry Pratchett’s long struggle with health issues came to an end.
Sir Terry was and continues to be a huge source of inspiration in my life and any readers unfamiliar with his series of Discworld novels owe it to yourselves to become familiar.
His writing taught me that writing could be clever and still incredibly funny. He taught me that characters could be powerful, respected and magical but still complain about having to get up in the middle of the night to pee. Terry Pratchett redefined my perspective on what makes a book great and the world of storytelling has suffered a profound loss.
Terry Pratchett is my hero and will continue to be.
“It is said that your life passes before your eyes just before you die. That’s true. It’s called Life.” – Terry Pratchett
