Lost another one.
British fantasy author Terry Pratchett dies at age 66Terry Pratchett, author of more than 70 books including the popular Discworld fantasy series, has died at his home, his publisher said Thursday.
Pratchett had early-onset Alzheimer’s disease, which he called an “embuggerance.” He died with his family and beloved cat with him.
Pratchett “enriched the planet like few before him,” said Publishers Transworld managing director Larry Finlay. “All who read him know, Discworld was his vehicle to satirize this world: he did so brilliantly, with great skill, enormous humor and constant invention.”..
