I agree. His family must be absolutely distraught. And he's only 59, too.
That means that there's not going to be much more Discworld. Sigh...
:( :( :(
The words of Nero come to mind.
"By Jupiter, what an artist dies with me."

BTW, you beat me to it. I was going to do this.
A flap of the wings yesterday means big changes tomorrow.
Let's work together to keep the present inevitable.

So yeah, I went and got a blog.

Well shit. Just shit. Discworld kept me sane through the first six months after my husband died.

Empusa's crew, so naked-new they may not face the fire,
But weep that they bin too small to sin to the height of their desire,
