A blog about life - the good, the bad, the people, the books, the games, coffee, and food.

The author who started it all

There I was 15 walking around the library looking for something new to read, and there on the pack away trolley I spotted this book:
This cover exactly.
I don't know what it was about it, but I picked it up, read the blurb and figured what the heck. I loved it, it changed my world forever. It was funny, and amazing...and exactly what I needed, without realising it was what I needed.

Terry Pratchett, changed everything for me. It was because of Mort that I found out that fantasy could be funny. It's because of him that I am a lover of fantasy, enjoy satire and have learnt that humour is an amazing tool. There are so many authors whose work I enjoy, that wouldn't have happened if not for picking up his book.

Good-bye Sir, and thank you for sharing your world with us.
