Sir Terry Pratchett

For those who have not read any of the Discworld Novels this is how Terry Pratchett opened the first one, The Colour of Magic :

In a distant and second-hand set of dimensions, in an astral plane that was never meant to fly, the curling star-mists waver and part ...

For those aficionados of the Discworld series (and I know that there is at least one amongst my Facebook Friends) this conversation with Terry Pratchett includes a reading from his next book, Snuff.

Although the books might be described as fantasy (a description that Pratchett rejects) the interview shows he has a great sense of the realities of this world.

For the first episode of the film version of The Colour of Magic follow this link.
