Trivia / Terry Pratchett

Listed Trivia

  • Author Existence Failure: Pratchett passed away on March 12, 2015. The last book he wrote (The Shepherd's Crown, the fifth Tiffany Aching book in the Discworld series) was published posthumously, and since his daughter Rhianna has stated that she will be the "caretaker" of Discworld but not write any books for it herself, this book marks the end of the series.
  • Contest Winner Cameo: Pratchett sometimes auctioned off naming rights to minor characters for charity.
  • Line to God: He was active on the Usenet group alt.fan.pratchett for a while in The '90s.
  • One of Us: In an interview the interviewer asked what Pratchett would be doing with his time if he hadn't become a writer and his answer was painting Warhammer miniatures.
  • Tuckerization: Some characters (particularly Hodgesaargh, the falconer of Lancre) are based on particularly memorable fans.
  • What Could Have Been: We almost had a Warhammer novel written by him.
