Born Terence David John Pratchett in Beaconsfield, England, in April 1948, Terry Pratchett was, at school, a proficient student who showed adeptness for writing and the English language. He was a member of his school’s debating team, as well as a contributor to the school magazine. At this young age, Pratchett developed an interest in astronomy and science fiction. He cited this as the real way of ‘getting an education’, rather than what he learnt in school.

Pratchett continued his writing through school and once he had left. This led to his first book, The Carpet People, being published in 1971. The story revolves around a species of characters known as Munrungs. This species live in a world known as the Carpet. Basically, if you hadn’t guessed it yet, their world is supposed to resemble the floor of your own home. It then details the journey the Munrungs have as they travel across Carpet to find a new home after theirs is destroyed. The writing style is very similar to that of Pratchett’s later works, relying heavily on parody and pastiche, In 1992, Pratchett released a revised version of the book, rewriting it after it increased in popularity thanks to the increasing size of Pratchett’s fanbase.

However, although Pratchett wrote many, many books along the lines of The Carpet People, with different series, he is best known for his creation of the Discworld series. While the Discworld series is a series of its own, they can also be broken down into several other series and some standalone novels. The Discworld series contains the Rincewind series, the Tiffany Aching series, the Watch series, amongst others, and each have their own fanbases amongst the broader Discworld fans.

The first two books in the Discworld series, The Colour of Magic, and The Light Fantastic, feature the hapless wizard Rincewind as he travels with Two Flower and The Luggage across the Discworld, exploring the land. The two-parter serves as Pratchett’s real introduction to the Discworld, as a lot of the world is discussed, and how the world itself works.

The last book written by Terry Pratchett was The Shepherd’s Crown, which was release posthumously in August 2015. The Shepherd’s Crown is the 41th Discworld book, and the 5th book in the Tiffinay Aching series. It also features the Nac Mac Feegle. The story continues that of the young Tiffany and how she becomes a mentor herself to a young wannabe witch w ho has just arrived in Lancre.

Sadly, Sir Terry Pratchett succumbed to his ongoing fight with Alheimer’s in March 2015. After his passing, his daughter, Rhianna Pratchett, announced that there would be no more books released featuring the Discworld, regardless of what her father had left behind. Pratchett’s legacy will live on in his writing and also his philanthropy, with his later years dedicated to raising awareness of the elderly and those with Alzheimer’s.

Terry wrote in the sci-fi and horror genres and later on focused on the fantasy genre. He was a writer of distinction which was mainly shown by his ability to write books for both adults and the young. Some of his notable works include Discworld, Good Omens and many others. Discworld is a book series that was written by Terry and it was a comic set on the fiction disc world which was a flat disc balanced on the backs of four elephants which stood on the backs of a giant turtle.

his novel contains themes that run through the series including the sub-genres of fantasy. This series is so interesting and did so well in the fiction novels world raising him to fame. Good omens was written by Terry Pratchet and Neil Geiman.It is a book that talks about the birth of the son of Satan and the coming of the end times.
