It seems Terry Pratchett has an early form of Alzheimer's disease

If you have not read Good Omens and enjoyed it you hate [Insert Country Here--Ed.], puppies, and the cuter orphans.

And freedom. You hate that too.

Terrible shame.

It's so very sad watching someone's mind decline with this disease. Sad

Quote:
Sister Mary Loquacious has been a devout Satanist since birth. She went to Sabbat School as a child and won black stars for handwriting and liver. . . . Currently she is being handed a golden-haired male baby we will call the Adversary, Destroyer of Kings, Angel of the Bottomless Pit, Great Beast that is called Dragon, Prince of This World, Father of Lies, Spawn of Satan, and Lord of Darkness.
. . . .

"Fancy me holding the Antichrist," said Sister Mary. "And bathing the Antichrist. And counting the little toesywosies. . . ."

She was now addressing the child directly, lost in some world of her own. Crowley waved a hand in front of her wimple. "Hallo? Hallo? Sister Mary?"

"Sorry, sir. He is a little sweetheart, though. Does he look like his daddy? I bet he does. Does he look like his daddywaddykins . . ."

"No," said Crowley firmly. "And now I should get up to the delivery rooms, if I were you."

"Will he remember me when he grows up, do you think?"

"Pray that he doesn't," said Crowley, and fled.

Sister May headed through the nighttime hospital with the Adversary, Destroyer of Kings, Angel of the Bottomless Pit, Great Beast that is called Dragon, Prince of This World, Father of Lies, Spawn of Satan, and Lord of Darkness safely in her arms. She found a bassinet and laid him down in it.

He gurgled. She gave him a tickle.

--Good Omens, Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett


One of my favorite scenes from one of my favorite books.

--J.D.

That is very sad news indeed. Obviously I am a big fan have been for years now. It looks like he still is planning on doing what he can while he still can and no telling how long until Alzheimer's really kicks in a takes over. Not much any of us can do at this point but to introduce others to his books. Reaper is already thanking me for making him read The Wee Free Men.

This was one of these stories that I didn't want to believe and it seemed ages before I could get online to check it out. Crying or Very sad


It was years ago that I first came across Rincewind, the books made me laugh out loud. I've been following the characters of Discworld ever since

Oh goody, another Terry Pratchett PWT, he is the most amazing author, ok, some of the books don't quite make it, but they are few and far between

Lu Tze and the History monks mixed with Sam Vimes are always a good story line,

ummm didn't we have this conversation in the Members Arena?

May his condition not rob him of his faculties until the end

It is probably a polite suggestion that fans and others should not send him encouragements to try whatever is their favorite quackery, such as homeopathy, chelation, et cetera.
