We lost Sir Terry Pratchett earlier this year. It's a sad, sad thing, but we will always have his books - and that is his most lasting legacy. Meanwhile, here's Sir Terry Pratchett remembered by his daughter, Rhianna Pratchett, in The Observer:
"He always said that he was most like the brusque Commander Vimes, raging against injustice. But he was a little like Death too; always loved a good curry and Pratchetts have cats like other people have bathrooms."
