The sheer amount of joy this man brought to the world made him a saint. We will never stop missing Terry Pratchett.


Some quotes to remember:

- Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.

- Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

- Stories of imagination tend to upset those without one.

- The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.

- Sometimes it is better to light a flamethrower than curse the darkness.

- In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

- In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.

- Only in our dreams are we free. The rest of the time we need wages.

- It's not worth doing something unless you were doing something that someone, somewere, would much rather you weren't doing.

- Five exclamation marks, the sure sign of an insane mind.

Terry Pratchett:

The Unseen Library:

In 2001 BCA in association with Gollancz began publishing collectors editions of the Discworld Series. These were bound in quarter leather, with lavish gilt and using high quality paper. The endpapers feature colour maps of Discworld and the covers a tipped in image by Paul Kidby.  The Unseen Library editions were initially very popular but the series ran out of steam with the final release, Maskerade. Apparently the cost of production was high so the printing error that required Maskerade to be redone may have killed them off. (copies of MASKARADE are naturally very collectable!) Nevertheless, these 18 volumes contain most of Pratchett’s best work in the Discworld universe. The first two are signed by Pratchett.

The Folio Society Mort Limited Edition:


We really searched for a copy of this book and are most happy to finally have one in the collection!


From the Folio Society description: Mort: A Limited Edition is now SOLD OUT.  Our fastest-selling book of all time.  Faster even than a panicked Rincewind fleeing creatures from the Dungeon Dimensions – the beautiful limited edition of Mort has sold out, in just 13 hours.  


Young Mort despairs of finding a suitable career in his provincial village, until one day he is rather unexpectedly hired by a bony figure in a cowl – Death, it seems, is in need of an apprentice … When Mort comes to the end of his adventures, his immortal employer gifts him a very special book – the book of Mort’s life.  

This unusual limited edition is a 'facsimile' of the remarkable book from Death’s very own library.  In order to replicate the volume as imagined by Terry Pratchett, Mort is bound in black leather, with the title blocked in shiny gold leaf on the spine.


Production Details: Limited to 500 copies bound in leather with blocking in gold leaf on the spine and raised bands. Set in Caslon, 240 pages with a black & white title-page by artist Omar Rayyan; 7 colour illustrations and features an exclusive signed print by the illustrator.

The Illustrated Guards! Guards! limited edition:



This is where the dragons went. They lie . . . not dead, not asleep, but . . . dormant.


And although the space they occupy isn't like normal space, nevertheless they are packed in tightly. They could put you in mind of a can of sardines, if you thought sardines were huge and scaly. And presumably, somewhere, there's a key to let them out.


Captain Sam Vimes of the Night Watch is going to have a doozy of a night when they are.


This edition is signed by and features ten glorious full-colour illustrations and further pencil drawings by Terry Pratchett's artist of choice, Paul Kidby. This edition is slipcased, has sprayed edges and includes a marker ribbon.
