D. Adams is the man, he's the only writer that can really get me to "turn the pages" and laugh hysterically.
I've hardly ever found T.P. funny, I get bored reading his books. I do appreciate that lots of people love his work though. Thus I find this quite sad, but also kinda cool, in a morbid kind of way:
"Beloved science fiction and fantasy writer Terry Pratchett has terminal early-onset Alzheimer's. He's determined to have the option of choosing the time and place of his death, rather than enduring the potentially horrific drawn-out death that Alzheimer's sometimes brings. But Britain bans assisted suicide, and Pratchett is campaigning to have the law changed. As part of this, he has visited Switzerland's Dignitas clinic, an assisted suicide facility, with a BBC camera crew, as part of a documentary that will include Britain's first televised suicide. Pratchett took home Dignitas's assisted suicide consent forms."
