The Magic of Terry Pratchett Hardcover – 30 July 2020
by Marc Burrows (Author)

Any one know if this is worth buying?
Hardbook on Amazon @ £17.59, due for release 30th July?

Has the author done any other biographies?

Is the Emporium likely to be selling it?

Hello there!

I'm the author of this! I'm afraid this is my first biography, so I can't offer you any reassurance there, although I have written extensively as a journalist for many years. As for whether it's any good - it's not out yet, so there's no definitive press or anything, but the reviews on GoodReads have been universally great (literally all four or five stars!).

As for being stocked in the Emporium ... I don't know! I would dearly love it to be, and I asked my publishers to investigate, but I have no idea if anything came of it.

There's more info at http://www.askmeaboutterrypratchett.com, or feel free to pop any questions here!

I took a look at the Goodreads reviews and took the plunge.
