The world lost a giant of an author this afternoon. Knight, writer, artist, journalist, philosopher, all around good man. He campaigned on behalf of a lot of charities, including the Alzheimer’s Association and the Orangutan Foundation, and always had a lot of time for his fans in a way very few authors do. His books, particularly the Discworld series, have been a huge part of my life since before I hit double digits and helped to make sense of the world. And to make fun of it, too.
If you own any of his books, start re-reading them, preferably in the company of a cat and a good drink.
If you don’t, then get thee to a library or a bookstore and start reading.
