Fifty Years of Terry Pratchett

UPDATE FROM TERRY OCT 2009

Folks,

I had a lovely letter the other day from very religious lady concerned about my health.  She said that I should consider my Alzheimer’s a gift from God.  Frankly, I would have preferred a sweater…

Coming back from the North American Discworld Convention has hardly been a rest and so my own personal con report and additional thanks has had to be delayed.  More on that later.

On the up side, the progress on I Shall Wear Midnight is rapid, thanks to Dragon Dictate and rather more to the guys at TalkingPoint – the front end that makes it much easier to use – who made contact with me through this very page.  I’m so impressed by it, that if my typing ability came back overnight, I would continue to use it.  I have no hesitation in praising the product as I have already paid for two licenses and a year’s maintenance. Anyway, we have to do this stuff otherwise what was the point of Star Trek?

The next few weeks are pretty well stuffed with things to do regarding Unseen Academicals and the celebration football match in Wincanton at which I shall break my life long vow of never watching a game of football. 

The next big public thing in our diary is the Irish Discworld convention, which takes in the Falls Hotel in Ennistymon Co. Clare from the 6th to 9th November. 

More later,
