Terry Pratchett on Sci-fi and Alzheimers

By Mark O’Neill

I have never really been able to get fully into his books but I have always admired Terry Pratchett for his hard work ethic (two books a year!).    Today I read an interview with Pratchett in the British Times newspaper and it is definately worth passing on for you to read.

The best part :

“Aricept (the Alzheimer’s drug) means he can’t drink, but he’s taken up snuff “because it has an interesting historical background; it’s made of ground-up churchwardens, you know”. The fact that it might harm him is a perverse consolation”
