As above of course.
What saddens me is the depth of emotion I felt during the entire 'Pratchett/Alhzeimers' media proclamation. Of course my neanderthal friends could never fathom such concern for a mere 'author' but the sheer injustice of it all...still moves me as much as it did when I first heard.
Add to this the increasing exposure due to his deserved Knighthood..."you read his books dontcha?" Unless youre familiar with his work how dare you even comment!

I seem to have failed to congratulate our Pterry so far so I'd better do it
now.Hearty congrats to the best author writting today.
I see we have a veritable pletherer of newbies joining to congratulate
Pterry.Please don't just use this thread for that,but come and join us and
have yourselves a fun time on the best site in town.
I know that being offered a Knighthood is a great honour as I myself have been nominated but I turned it down as I know I would never wear
one. :roll:
Dark in here isn't it.

Terry's Knighthood

Postby Mark-C » Tue Feb 03, 2009 6:00 pm

Apparently, I am the 48th person to congratulate Terry on his Knighthood in this thread - quite an honour as I expect there are several million who feel the same.

Terry's humour is wonderful, I need to read each line at least twice to check thatI haven't missed some slight (OK I'm not very bright).

To Terry - Please, Please keep writing !
Cheers, Mark-C

Congratulations Sir!

As an American, I'm not entirely sure what Knighthood entails, but I do understand it's a HUGE and well deserved honor.

A knighthood means that in times of national crisis you have the right to bear arms and form your own private army. :P
