I just found out five minutes ago that one of my favourite creators, Sir Terry Pratchett, has died.
My first reaction was no no no no no no (continue ad infinitum).
My second reaction was seeing him greeting Death with no surprise at all, unlike many of the characters in his Discworld books, and then beginning a conversation with Death that I expect will continue for eternity and delight both of them. I am sure that Death will no longer experience any boring spots in his existence with Sir Terry at his side.
My third reaction is this. Thank you thank you thank you for sharing your awesome gifts of humour and words and vision with all of us! Your books inspire me, and so do you.
