This morning I finished reading PTerry's last book, The Shepherd's Crown. It has something of an unfinished feel to it...it deals with Tiffany Aching and the Witches of Discworld, and it is quite good, but I have to admit that in Chapter Two, I felt like I'd been kicked in my teeth. The book left me nostalgic for the past, and hopeful for the future, even though I know that there will be no more Discworld books, or at least not until I am long dead.

If you've never read any Discworld novels by Sir Terry Pratchett, you should. Why do you think he got knighted? Political clout? If you have read some or all of his other works, this one is worth reading as well.
