Sir Terence David John Pratchett, more commonly known as Terry Pratchett, was a novelist known for his Discworld series of comic fantasy novels. His first novel, The Carpet People, was published in 1971, and since his first Discworld novel, The Colour of Magic, was published in 1983, he has written two books a year on average. Pratchett is also known for close collaboration on adaptations of his books, such as the video game adaption of The Colour of Magic.
Pratchett was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire "for services to literature" in 1998, and was in addition knighted in the 2009 New Year Honours.
In December 2007, Pratchett publicly announced that he was suffering from early-onset Alzheimer's disease, subsequently making a substantial public donation to the Alzheimer's Research Trust.
Pratchett was an avid computer game player, and he has collaborated in the creation of a number of game adaptations of his books. He favours games that are 'intelligent and have some depth', and has used Half-Life 2 and fan missions from Thief as examples.
Terry Pratchett passed away on March 12th, 2015. He was at his home with his family by his side.
