He was/is amazing
He was a very strong supporter for the rights of people with mental illnesses, especially since he'd been diagnosed with Alzheimers 8 years ago. And his writing is amazing, with razor sharp wit!!
Apparently, a lot of Americans haven't heard of him, due to the prevalence of Syar Wars-esque fantasy/sci-fi. Such a shame, even though I like things like Star Wars too. In my country, there is an equal amount of popularity for American and
English media (hence we have a lot of American TV channels AND the BBC), so generally when I go to bookstores, there is at least one whole shelf filled with his works (and it's never an entire collection. Discworld is 40 books long, and in total, Pratchett probably wrote about 70 titles. Myself and my best friend both cried over his death, and the only people who were left confused were our parents
He'll certainly be remembered. Especially as he's basically an English national treasure (he has a knighthood. In fact, because of the knighthood, he dug up some iron ore and meteorites and had a sword made for himself
Thank you for commenting, Vivi!
And I highly recommend his works! I think you might like it!
