“If you are going to write, say, fantasy – stop reading fantasy. You’ve already read too much. Read other things; read westerns, read history, read anything that seems interesting, because if you only read fantasy and then you start to write fantasy, all you’re going to do is recycle the same old stuff and move it around a bit.”
I have not read all 40 volumes of Discworld, played the board games or read the graphic novels. I’m not the biggest fan of his. I’m just someone who has a huge amount of respect for a person to be so thoroughly able to create a world that its creation would span decades. That’s an amazing body of work. A legacy that will last through generations. Remember Death always forgets the knight, Sir Terry.
