I’m a big fan of the late Terry Pratchett’s work and keep his novels on a shelf
in my bedroom – office.

They’re kept in two rows, one behind the other – the later editions hiding behind the earlier books, which I enjoy reading.

Later editions being in hardback – are also on another shelf and these are kept, like the paperbacks in chronological order, the last edition being the shepherds crown, which was completed just before  terry’s death

The books themselves have series all to do with individual characters, there’s the Wizards, Death, the Witches, the Dwarves, The thieves guild, the Watch, the Vampires and of course, theres the character that kicks it all off – Rincewind.

Each set of books has its own groupings and could be kept in their own sets – I choose to set them out chronologically.

Troll Bridge

Following on Nicely from my piece on the bridge at Salford Quays

Here’s a piece of poetry from my Allpoetry Archive

Hope you like it 🙂

The Troll Bridge

They built a bridge
between two hills
so they could cross
where the water spills.But on the bridge
your path – stopped
by Troll
who blocks

The Glass

The Glass
Water in Glass

The world belongs, to those who look at the glass and say: What’s up with this Glass? Excuse me? Excuse me ? This is my glass ? I don’t think so.  My Glass was full!  And it was a bigger glass!

Words from Terry Pratchett’s Discworld Novel : The Truth

Letter to Pratchett

#NaPoWriMo #fanletter #PTerryterry_pratchett[1].jpg

A fan letter to the late #TerryPratchett,

(who I met at a Book signing in Manchester back in 2003).

Hi there Terry,

It’s me, the Lanky lad from Lancashire

Memories of meeting you in Manchester

Along with an Army of other readers

Discussing our favourite Discworld books,

As we waited in the wind

Wobbly walking up to your desk in Waterstone’s Bookstore

Shaking a Legendary writers hand,

as you took time to answer questions from a fan

Memories captured in a Moment

Shared between a Fan and an Author

and captured in a simple signature.

Hope all is well in Deaths Domain….

All the Best,

Brian

P.S.  Hope you won the Chess Game.
