a little box called fantasy is as descriptive as saying that chocolate is brown. While factually true, it does nothing to describe the sensual pleasure and the explosion of flavours and sensations that putting a piece of chocolate in your mouth brings. Terry Pratchett's books are funny, and I mean laugh out loud on the bus funny. They are satirical, perceptive, honest, revealing, intriguing, touching, informative. In my modest view, Terry Pratchett was a genius.
One of my favourite books of his is "I Shall Wear Midnight", which is actually part of a parallel series to the better known Discworld series. It is my tribute to him. The world is a poorer place without his brilliant writing. I hope he is in a better place.
