RIP Terry Pratchett


Science Fiction and Fantasy writers have influenced our hobby for as long as our hobby has existed. And one of the most influential people in my life passed away today. Terrys books got me into reading when I didn't want to as a child, In fact probably gave me the motivation to overcome any disadvantage my dyslexia gave me so I could continue to read his work. He created a universe that I still go back to when I feel sad or uninspired. Created characters that I could not only relate to but want to emulate.

As beloved as a member of my family, I owe where I am and the work I create, in a very large part, to him.

Thank you Terry, now I think you have an appointment.
