I sat on this news for a while as I know he wanted to keep it relatively quiet (as if my readership is more than just a blip), but its out in the wild now. Author Terry Pratchett, best known for his Discworld series of books, announced on Tuesday that he has been diagnosed with a rare form of early
onset Alzheimer’s Disease. He does state, “I am not dead,” and does not want people to treat him as such. He expects to meet all current obligations and hopefully all future obligations as well.
