Sir Terry Pratchett came to Seattle, Washington to do a book signing several years ago. My father brought him a copy of Thud to sign. Dad asked him to sign the book ‘I am better than Nora Roberts’ but Sir Terry Pratchett did not do it. He told my Dad that he loved Nora Robert’s books, so he signed the book with the message ‘I am as good as Nora Roberts.’ I miss him. His books shine a light into a darkness you never knew was dark until the light proved otherwise.
