I'm sure I don't need to tell you all but Sir Terry Pratchett's first published and paid for story was "The Hades Business" in the Science Fantasy magazine in August 1963, Vol 20 No 60. A rare achievement for someone not yet 16.

I've been after a copy of this for a while and I have finally got my hands on one. Not any easy thing to find with its print run being in the low thousands.

It's not the cleanest of copies, a bit stained and yellowing, but I thought you may like to see some images of it. This is of course, Sir Terry's first ever "first edition"
