The Shepherd’s Crown by Terry Pratchett
This is the last Discworld novel Terry Pratchett produced. He still sells well and is very sadly missed. Like J K Rowling he made readers out of millions of young people and for that we thank him. His mother used to live across the River Wye in Clyro and occasionally Terry Pratchett would come into Addyman Books.
He was always happy to sign any books of his we had in stock. He also visited the local primary school to talk to the older children. When asked where he got his ideas from he answered that it all the ideas were there already – in history, in mythology and in the old stories. He said he didn’t have to make up anything !
