It was such a deserved honour. Terry was and always will be, such a major influence on English literature. I am convinced he will one day be taught in schools.

Indeed. One can always hope!

If I may make an analogy, Terry's books are like the ocean: on the surface, they are light - "only for kids" to "splash around in" and have fun. But beneath the surface, there are great depths and problems to fathom and think over.

On a more light-hearted note, I wonder what passed between them. Did the Queen say "So you're a famous author, then? That's wonderful. And what does that involve?"

(Or am I thinking of Prince Charles?) ;)

Good Omens

"Pratchett’s wackiness collaborates with Gaiman’s morbid humour; the result is a humanist delight to be savoured and read again and again."
