Terry Pratchett has Alzheimer's

Sad news that one of the most imaginative and creative writers on the planet has Alzheimers. First Douglas Adams and now Terry Pratchett, does God need the best writers up there?

The writer said he would continue to work on his latest book

Author Terry Pratchett is suffering from a rare form of early Alzheimer's disease, it has been revealed.

In a letter published on the website of artist Paul Kidby, the writer said the condition was behind a "phantom stroke" he had earlier this year.

Pratchett said
... Quote:
I would have liked to keep this one quiet for a little while. Frankly, I would prefer it if people kept things cheerful.

I will, of course, be dead at some future point, as will everybody else. For me, this maybe further off than you think.

I know it's a very human thing to say 'Is there anything I can do?' but in this case I would only entertain offers from very high-end experts in brain chemistry.
