'I know about sureness,' said Didactylos. Now the light irascible tone had drained out of his voice. 'I remember before I was blind, I went to Omnia once. This was before the borders were closed, when you still let people travel. And in your Citadel I saw a crowd stoning a man to death in a pit. Ever seen that?'
'It has to be done,' Brutha mumbled. 'So the soul can be shriven and — '
'Don't know about soul. Never been that kind of a philosopher,' said Didactylos. 'All I know is, it was a horrible sight.'
'The state of the body is not — '
'Oh, I'm not talking about the poor bugger in the pit,' said the philosopher. 'I'm talking about the people throwing the stones. They were sure all right. They were sure it wasn't them in the pit. You could see it in their faces. So glad that it wasn't them that they were throwing just as hard as they could.'

TL;DR. Well, your loss! Even if he didn't write anything but "Small gods", it would still be a great writing carrier.

Yeah she totally deserves no credit for her contribution to popular literature.

Next to the ever classic Alice In Wonderland, Small Gods has to be my favorite book of all time.
Terry Pratchett is beyond a God among men.

Of his books that I've read so far, Mort is probably my favorite.

Ah, the ability to not care about what happens to great authors. Being an uncultured swine is great.

“The wages of sin is death but so is the salary of virtue, and at least the evil get to go home early on Fridays.” - Terry Pratchett

National ******* Treasure

Do you know how badass this man is? When he was Knighted by the Queen, he didnt ponce around getting people to call him Sir Terry. ************ went and dug up meteorites containing iron. He extracted and smelted that iron and forged his own sword. For what is a Knight without his sword. And if you're gonna have a ******* sword, Thunderbolt Iron is obviously the way to go.

Pic related. The very blade.

Oh man two of my favorite books are by him! Dodger and Nation. No one else ever seems to have heard of them, which is a shame because I would love to see sequels or even fanfiction stuff.

You realise that he's written about 45 books within the same universe?

Any of you guys who don't know, this is Terry Pratchett, as his shirt says, who, before Rowling wrote Harry Potter, was Britain's most popular author. He's written a ton of books for a series he created called Discworld. Excellent, inventive, really good, incredibly funny fantasy. Check any of his books out and you'll get into the characters, the setting, and everything else. It's way, way good.

Monstrous Regiment is a personal favorite of mine. I realized years later that I was trans, I bet that played a part in my enjoyment of it. Good Omens is an absolute treasure, I'd probably put it as my 2nd favorite book, and that had Neil Gaiman too, who wrote the amazing American Gods and so many excellent short stories. Also Wee Free Men, the first one I ever read...

I was just about to say that TP probably outsold JK by a dozen times.


then i googled it.

85 million copies by Sir terry, 400 million by J.K rowlin.

then googled Stephanie Meyer... just for kicks.


over 100 million....



he wrote about 40 ******* books, compared to JK's 8 and Meyer's 3(4?) and he's sold less than them?

People have no ******* taste.

atleast nether of them are getting knighted.

Don't get me wrong, Harry potter is good, but its hardly Gold-Standard, and Meyer's books are some of the worst Trashy romance ever written (and thats a ******* low bar to set in the first place)


do people just not read books until they appear on TV first or something? like people jumping all over the hunger-games, and ASoFaI which nobody seemed to care about until they were on TV.
