Other folks have posted the news about Sir Terry Pratchett's death. This io9 chart came up while I was googling for more info, and it seemed like a fitting thing to share.

I'm a newcomer to Pratchett and the Discworld. I've heard wonderful things about him and his writing for ages, but didn't start reading it until a few months ago (Mort and Good Omens, oddly enough). So hopefully this is a good remembrance for anyone else who's still just getting into the marvelous behemoth that was his work.
