Terry Pratchett in Conversation at the Sydney Opera House

Terry Pratchett is one of our very popular authors here at King's, he is currently touring and speaking at conferences and events. His wonderfully clever and quirky novels which mostly take place on Discworld have entertained generations of students and indeed their parents for many years. He is one of the most prolific authors around and his wild imaginings have kept on entertaining his followers for many years. Despite having Alzheimer’s Disease he continues writing and publishing regularly and is involved in various projects to help improve our world. He is in general an admirable person and his books are treasured all over the world.

If you haven't entered Discworld then you are missing a real treat. If you have entered Discworld you may be interested in watching his speech at the Sydney Opera House recently, you will hear an excerpt from his latest book - which isn't out yet, and you will hear him speaking about his life, his illness and his wonderful books. In the interview below he is speaking to Garth Nix, the Australian author who is also extremely popular here at King's.

Warning, the talk goes for rather long time, and you should check with the broadband bill payer at your house to see if they are happy for you to spend nearly an hour watching the video!  But I know that it will be hard for Discworld addicts to resist and it comes heartily recommended.
