The beloved author Terry Pratchett passed away a few weeks ago, a fact that still makes me spontaneously burst into tears. He wrote over forty Discworld novels and left an indelible mark on fantasy as well know it. Upon his death, everyone wondered what will happen to the Discworld series. Will his daughter continue it? Will there be any final books he wrote? Finally, we know.
The last and final Discworld book, The Shepard's Crown, will come out this fall. It's a Tiffany Aching novel and by all appearances sounds as if it will truly be the last Discworld book ever. I'm not crying, YOU'RE crying.
