What they said
If you can fill the unforgiving minute,
With sixty seconds worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a man my son.

I'm guessing that you might already have found our discussion threads but HERE'S a handy link in case you missed a few. It's worth mentioning that these are still open so if you (or any other newbies) feel like adding to them, fresh input is always welcome. :D

Hey there!

I'm relatively new so I don't know where to post this question, I thought here would be a good start. :shifty:
Does anyone know whether Pratchett is still answering fan mail?
Since he is so busy and not in perfect health anymore...
I would really like to ask him his opinion on something as I'm doing my Master's degree on his novels, but I just want to know what my chances are of getting an answer if I tried sending a letter to his fan mail address..
In the beginning there was nothing....which exploded...

Welcome back NighowlPip! :D

I very much doubt that you would get a response from Terry via email. He used to find it difficult to keep up with his mail even before he got ill.

My suggestion would be to contact Terry's agent, Colin Smythe, whose email and contact details can be found HERE. Good luck!
