At the time of his death in 2015, award-winning and bestselling author Sir Terry Pratchett was working on his finest story yet - his own.

The creator of the phenomenally bestselling Discworld series, Terry Pratchett was known and loved around the world for his hugely popular books, his smart satirical humour and the humanity of his campaign work. But that's only part of the picture.

Before his untimely death, Terry was writing a memoir: the story of a boy who aged six was told by his teacher that he would never amount to anything and spent the rest of his life proving him wrong. For Terry lived a life full of astonishing achievements: becoming one of the UK's bestselling and most beloved writers, winning the prestigious Carnegie Medal and being awarded a knighthood.

Now, the book Terry sadly couldn't finish has been written by Rob Wilkins, his former assistant, friend and now head of the Pratchett literary estate. Drawing on his own extensive memories, along with those of the author's family, friends and colleagues, Rob unveils the full picture of Terry's life - from childhood to his astonishing writing career, and how he met and coped with what he called the 'Embuggerance' of Alzheimer's disease.

A deeply moving and personal portrait of the extraordinary life of Sir Terry Pratchett, written with unparalleled insight and filled with funny anecdotes, this is the only official biography of one of our finest authors.

    Good deal, heated.

    I made the mistake of impulse-buying from Amazon (with the 50/50 possibility of converting with Calibre) without first checking on the Kobo site, where at the moment it is also £0.99, just in case anyone else has a Kobo rather than a Kindle. I tend to forget Kobo's site as it is way less organised than Amazon's.

    Amazon has closed the backdoor on people converting Amazon book using Calibre for Kobo. Won't work on books published after certain date now.
    God I hate closed systems.

    Minor claim to fame. Terry and I both used to be users of an early online system called CIX. I asked a fairly techy PC question in one of the forums and Terry answered my question (correctly!). He was a very active user and much liked on there. Another user in its early days was Douglas Adams.

    CIX is still around (think I joined in the late 80’s)
