Well known fantasy comic writer Terry Pratchet has announced that he has been diagnosed with a type of early onset Alzhiemer's.
This is sad news indeed both from a matter of yet another poor soul to fall from this condition as well as to legions of his fans all over the world.
I've been reading his Discworld books for about two decades now. He always seems to have some sort of fresh angle that brings many a laugh to me and now we'll be lucky to see one or two more books before he won't be able to write any more....
For any of you that enjoy a bit of truly funny whimsy I can recomend you pick up one or two of his Discworld books.
