    1. Sir Terry Pratchett sold his first story when he was thirteen, which earned him enough money to buy a second hand typewriter His first novel, a humorous fantasy entitled The Carpet People, appeared in 1971 from the publisher Colin Smythe Terry worked for many years as a journalist and press officer, writing in his spare time and publishing a number of novels, including his first Discworld novel, The Color of Magic, in 1983 In 1987, he turned to writing full time There are over 40 books in the Discworld series, of which four are written for children The first of these, The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents, won the Carnegie Medal A non Discworld book, Good Omens, his 1990 collaboration with Neil Gaiman, has been a longtime bestseller and was reissued in hardcover by William Morrow in early 2006 it is also available as a mass market paperback Harper Torch, 2006 and trade paperback Harper Paperbacks, 2006 In 2008, Harper Children s published Terry s standalone non Discworld YA novel, Nation Terry published Snuff in October 2011 Regarded as one of the most significant contemporary English language satirists, Pratchett has won numerous literary awards, was named an Officer of the British Empire for services to literature in 1998, and has received honorary doctorates from the University of Warwick in 1999, the University of Portsmouth in 2001, the University of Bath in 2003, the University of Bristol in 2004, Buckinghamshire New University in 2008, the University of Dublin in 2008, Bradford University in 2009, the University of Winchester in 2009, and The Open University in 2013 for his contribution to Public Service.In Dec of 2007, Pratchett disclosed that he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer s disease On 18 Feb, 2009, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II.He was awarded the World Fantasy Life Achievement Award in 2010.Sir Terry Pratchett passed away on 12th March 2015.

    2. I want to try and review both this and The Colour of Magic: Graphic Novel independently from the actual novels, but I think being such a big fan of Terry Pratchett's books it is a bit of an impossibility to entirely split them away from each other.Well talk about throwing Galder Weatherwax underneath the bus! I cannot believe that Granny will be happy with the substitution of Trymon. I understand that in graphic novel adaptations there is a need to not have too many extraneous characters, but I [...]

    3. The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic are perhaps my least favourite books in the Discworld universe. I just think Pratchett got better as he got going. But revisiting The Light Fantastic as a graphic novel was neat. It works well like that. Nice way of getting a repetition of the story. I think I might recommend reading both The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic as graphic novels for those not yet familiar with Discworld. After that introduction you can then jump into reading the re [...]

    4. The Light Fantastic in this Graphic Novel edition by Terry Pratchett was a fun read!I really like how Terry Pratchett created and introduced the Disc-world Universe and with all the fun characters like Death, the "First Tourist", Rincewind and the Rock Giants. I will definitely read more of his Discworld Novels. It sounds very intriguing and like a lot of fun!

    5. You don't need me to tell you that Terry Pratchett is a master storyteller.It brings beautiful visuals to an already successful novel with wonderful beloved characters who come to life more vibrantly through the graphic novel.It's very much worth picking up and dedicating an afternoon of your time.

    6. Fun as Terry Pratchett always is. But I prefer a little more books over comics in this matter. The drawing style wasn´t maybe for me. But still very enjoyable.

    7. Enjoyed the graphic twist on the conventional Terry P novel but prefer to imagine the characters in my head than have them all drawn out :)
