Remembering Discworld – A tribute to Terry Pratchett

I must say that it came as a bit of a surprise, not a shock, but a surprise, to receive a post on my Facebook page telling me that the author of the beloved Discworld series had passed away. I wasn’t shocked because, well, death comes to us all in the end, as he would remind us time and time again in his books, yet from my perspective (and I must admit that while I enjoy his books, I don’t necessarily follow all aspects of his life) he did not seem to live the type of lifestyle that would bring about his passing at such a young age. Yeah, I know, he was 66 so while that may hardly be young in some people’s books, I still consider people of that age to be in the prime of their life.
