Terence David John “Terry” Pratchett , OBE (Beaconsfield, April 28, 1948 – Broad Chalke, March 12, 2015) was a British fantasy and science fiction writer. His best known works correspond to the Mundodisco series (Discworld); He has also written juvenile novels, short stories and has collaborated in the writing of scripts for television adaptations of his novels.

With more than 70 million books sold in 37 languages, it is the second British author of fiction with more sales after J.K. Rowling.

Terry Pratchett’s Biography

He was born in Beaconsfield in Buckinghamshire in 1948. At the age of 11, he went to study at the High Wycombe technical school, where he published his first story at age 13, entitled The Hades Business. Two years later it would be published for commercial sale. He oriented his studies to journalism, left school in 1965 to work at Bucks Free Press and passed the course of the National Council for the Training of Journalists. In that same year he would write his second short story, The Night Dweller.

In 1971 he published his first book called The carpet people, which, although few in number, received good reviews. Some rated the quality of the work as extraordinary. He was subsequently followed by The Dark Side of the Sun in 1976 and Strata in 1981. He left the Bucks Free Press for the Western Daily Press on September 28, 1970, and returned to the former in 1972 as assistant director. A year laterwould leave it again, this time for the Bath Chronicle. In this era he made a series of comic strips that will not go down in history.

In 1981 he moved to the position of head of public relations at a nuclear power plant (the company he worked for, now PowerGen, had responsibility for three nuclear power plants), just before the Three Mile Island disaster. Precisely this was his work when he wrote his first novel about the Discworld: The Color of Magic (1983). El reeón del Mundodisco (Discworld), a fantasy saga set in a hilarious world that parodies ours is the set of novels that has given it international fame.

In 1986 the fantastic light was published, continuation of the previous one. With the popularity of the man in the hat increasing at times, in 1987 he decided to dedicate himself solely to writing. Ritos Iguales (1987), Mort (1987) and Rechicero (1988) would be the next novels to appear. That same year he signed a new contract for six more novels (not necessarily Mundodisco) and from that moment he did not stop writing.

(1989), Eric (1990), Images in action (1990), The Reaper (1991), Brujas de Viaje (1991), Dioses Minor (1992), Lords and Ladies (1992), Hombres de armas (1993), Soul Music (1994), Interesting Times (1994), Masquerade (1995), Pies of Mud (1996), Papa Puerco (1996), Vote for Brios! (1997), The Country of the End of the World (1998), Carpe Jugulum (1998), The Fifth Elephant (1999), The Truth (2000), Thief of Time (2001), The Last Hero (2001), The Amazing Mauritius and his wise rodents (2001), Nighttime round (2002), The free small men (The wee free men) (2003), Monstrous regiment (2003), A hat of heaven (2004), Letters in the subject (2004) , Zas! (2005), Wintersmith (2006), Dinero a mansalva (2007), The invisible Athletic (2009),Shall Wear Midnight (2010) and Snuff (2011). He has also published three volumes of The Science of Discworld in collaboration with Ian Stewart, mathematician and popular author of popular books, and Jack Cohen, biologist and writer collaborator in the creation of plausible aliens.

Special mention deserves the trilogy of the Exodus of the Gnomes, not related to the Discworld, whose titles are Truckers (1989), Cavadores (1989) and La nave (1990).

In 1998 he was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire on the Queen’s birthday in recognition of the services rendered to literature (although at first he thought it was a joke), the following year he received the title of Doctor Honoris Causa in Literature from the University of Warwick and in 2001 the same honorary degree from the University of Portsmouth. As a curiosity, it can be said that at the investiture ceremony of the University of Warwick he himself replied by making Invisible University Doctors to Ian Stewart and Jack Cohen, who jointly wrote the novel The Science of Discworld. In the New Year celebrations of 2009, Caballero was also armed.

Terry Pratchett announced on December 11, 2007 that he suffered from premature Alzheimer’s disease. However, he announced that he would face the disease because he thought “there is still time to write at least a few more books”.

The writer influenced his announcement that it was not simply “I’m not dead”. Although he used his characteristic irony when saying that “of course,will be dead in the future, like everyone else, for me, maybe later than you think”. According to his statement, this case of Alzheimer’s was a “very rare” version of the disease. The author mentioned a “phantom blow” received in the past that had surfaced. Pratchett said he took this problem with “philosophy” and “mild optimism”.

Terry Pratchett passed away on March 12, 2015 at his home near Stonehenge, in Broad Chalke (Wiltshire), where he lived with his wife Lyn and his daughter Rhianna Pratchett, also a writer.
