Terry Pratchett, Dead at 66

The BBC is reporting that renowned fantasy author Terry Pratchett has passed away, at home, surrounded by family. Pratchett was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s in 2007, and while he had previously advocated for assisted suicide, Pratchett’s representatives say he did not take his own life.

Pratchett’s extensive Discworld series is legendary, having spawned both live action and animated adaptations. He was likely one of the greatest comedic authors of a generation, and I think we’re all sad to see him go.

His death was announced via Pratchett’s twitter account, with a line of dialogue in the style of the personification of Death in the Discworld books:

Trae Dorn

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
