I have spoken a number of times to A.J. Hartley http://www.ajhartley.net/, and know that he is a huge fan of Sir Terry's. I "met" Mr. Hartley on Twitter when he commented on a tweet I posted about "The Fifth Elephant", and from there we have exchanged quite a lot of email and twitter traffic - a fair portion of that related to pTerry. (He's a good author himself; I particularly liked the Will Hawthorne books. I really hope there's a third in the works.)
I feel more like I do now than I did before

I love humor fantasy books very much. 7 years ago I liked such books of modern famous Russian woman-writer Olga Gromycko (Ольга Громыко) (when I was younger than now! :)). She is writing very funny books about life and love of young (about 23 years old) witch. In one of her interviews she said: "...No, you are wrong! I'm not the funniest writer!
The all funniest things already was said by Terry Pratchett...". After that I started to find TP's book everywhere. After reading TP's books I was slightly disappointed with my favourite woman-writer :) After TP's book I stopped to love Olga Gromyko's books. Because I understood that it were not as deep as TP's books. The humor is not enough for our souls, exactly! :)
PS Sorry for my seldom arrive in forum… Many works, many cares… But I often read your posts ! :)

:lol: He does! In fact, I've come to some of my favorite authors through Harlan: Gerald Kersh, Paul Di Filippo, Cecilia Holland and a bunch of others. The man's personality goes hand in hand with his work, though, and can be a tough pill to swallow but I think the world of him and his work.

Ken Follett is a fan. He won an auction to be a Terry character.

Lindsey Davis (the "Falco" series set in ancient Rome)is a fan. She coined the phrase "tribute plagiarism" to describe the phenomena of an author "borrowing" from another author and insering sly references into their own work to see if anyone notices. The Falco books are full of Pratchett homages.
Used to be too clever by half, but by virtue of consistent drinking, now only too clever by about a quarter. Banned from all BBC messageboards for being too much of an "uncceptable editorial risk".

There are a few Terry references in Ben Aaronovitch's 'Rivers of London' supernatural crime series as well.
