Terry Pratchett, Author of Fantasy 'Discworld' Novels, Dies at 66

According to his publisher, Terry Pratchett, the British author whose fantasy novels sold in their tens of millions worldwide, has died of a rare form of Alzheimer's disease at the age of 66. News about the death of Pratchett - who campaigned during his final illness for legalizing assisted death - came on his Twitter account in a series of tweets written in the style of his Discworld novels, where Death always talks in capital letters. "AT LAST, SIR TERRY, WE MUST WALK TOGETHER," said the first tweet on @terryandrob.
