Fans around the world are mourning the untimely death this morning of Sir Terry Pratchett, OBE. Pratchett was the author of more than 40 satirical fantasy novels, most of them part of his beloved Discworld series.

Since the first Discworld novel, The Colour of Magic, was published in 1983, the books have been translated into more than 30 languages, and have sold many millions of copies. In the UK, only J.K. Rowling sells more per year. The books are marked by Pratchett's writing style, which combined an incisive wit with a powerful imagination, and used the tropes of fantasy literature to satirize the real world in a devastating way.
