Recently announced that TP has Alzheimer's
Very sad indeed ..
Good to see YOU again though Vee
Good to be back.
As for the Hogfather, I saw that it was on a few days ago or it was advertised to be broadcast in a few days, but I've never seen or read the book, but the plot sounds good... I'll look into it...
Recently announced that TP has Alzheimer's.
I found this on Wikiapedia:
In August 2007, he was diagnosed as having had a minor stroke in 2004 or 2005. This damaged the right side of his brain, and while affecting motor skills, has not impaired his ability to write. On 11 December 2007, he posted that the cause of the "phantom 'stroke'" was, "a very rare form of early onset Alzheimer's". However, he remains optimistic and plans to continue writing.
And confirmation at BBC New's Online Article: Author Pratchett has Alzheimer's.
Where asked us to remain cheerful. I also understand he has a lot more books in him and that he plans to get most of them published before they fade away.
