Sad News

Just a quick one. I have obviously been floating around in a bubble all day(no news there I hear you say) because I didn’t know about Terry Pratchett’s death today.
Whether his brand of otherworldly humour was your cup of tea or not, the author was hugely respected and followed by millions, and most read second only to J.K. Rowling, apparently. Personally, I think his very individual sense of humour always hit the mark; he had a real understanding of humanity and always managed to make us laugh at ourselves.
More information via the BBC website – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-31858156, though there are no prizes for noting how many times they call him ‘Sir Terry’. It seems even HRH liked him, because I have to say I can’t think of any other authors who’ve been made Knights of the Realm (perhaps someone out there may know differently).
He’ll be sadly missed.
