A shame that one of the most prolific writers of fantasy has passed away.
I have enjoyed many of his books over the year and whilst expected, still I feel a loss to the comic fantasy genre.

Although expected, I still found the news sudden.

Incredible writer, and The Light Fantastic and The Colour of Magic, amongst others, are at the very pinnacle of the comic fantasy genre.

RIP.

He left a great legacy to be fair. I'm sure he'd want us to enjoy his last books :)
