About the Author
Sir Terry Pratchett is a publishing phenomenon. Among his many prizes and citations are the World Fantasy Life Achievement Award, the Carnegie Medal, the BSFA Award, eight honorary doctorates and, of course, a knighthood. In 2012, he won a BAFTA for his documentary on the subject of assisted suicide, 'Terry Pratchett: Choosing to Die'. He is the author of fifty bestselling books but is best known for the globally renowned Discworld series.
The first Discworld novel, The Colour of Magic, was published in 1983, and the series is still going strong almost three decades later. Four Discworld novels - Hogfather, Going Postal, The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic - have been adapted for television, with more to follow. His books have sold approximately 85 million copies worldwide (but who's counting?), and been translated into thirty-seven languages.
In 2007, Terry Pratchett was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's Disease. He died in 2015.

There are positives here - it's lavishly presented in a beautifully glossy hardback format, it's pages are filled with set photographs, line drawings and design sketches, and there's the added advantage of not being hampered by lackluster performances, but other than two forewords (one by Pratchett, the other by Jean) and an after word by the producers, it is absolutely devoid of extras. One might expect a few production notes scattered throughout and perhaps some cast interviews, but one would be left unsatisfied.
It's a lovely addition to anyone's collection, but if you are looking for something that will give you a little insight into the production, you'll find this sadly lacking. One can't help feeling they threw this together quickly in order to cash in on the seasonal programme schedule, with little thought as to what it could have been - and it could have been so much more! On the other hand, if you're looking for something to leaf through on a wintry afternoon, or leave on your coffee table, you could do a lot worse.
