In case you hadn't heard already, Terry Pratchett has been diagnosed with a rare form of early onset alzheimers.

Pratchetts books have been a part of my life for longer than I care to remember.

From the moment I picked up a copy of Colour Of Magic, I was hooked. The irreverance towards both the fantasy genre and the roundworld in general brought a smile to my face, and I'm not afraid to say a tear to my eye on more than one occasion.

Characters like Sam Vimes, Granny Weatherwax and of course Rincewind transported me to a place where in the face of a world full of dull evil and stupidity, good (mixed with a good dash of dark cynicism) could triumph occasionally.

So if anyone knows of any high-end brain chemistry experts could they please get them in contact with Terry? I don't think the world is ready to lose his brand of writing just yet.
