Terry in the news - ** NO DIGRESSIONS **

Just what it says on the tin, a place for all sorts of useful and useless information.

Satellite 4 regrets to announce that Sir Terry Pratchett is unable to join us at the convention.

That is AKA Eastercon.

Nice story, if true, about the schoolteacher who encouraged Terry to write when he was a wee free boy http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/books/booknews/11651236/The-teacher-who-inspired-Terry-Pratchett.html

Not sure if this counts as 'news', but saw this posted by DW fans on Faceborg:

SFX magazine have issued a tribute to STP in issue 264 - I'm not a subscriber, but I think it's the latest issue with David Duchovny on the cover. I don't know if the tribute is available with all copies or if it's just for those with subscriptions. If anyone does know, or even better, has a copy - please share :wink:
