Submission + - Terry Pratchett diagnosed with Alzheimer's

ElrondHubbard writes: Bad news for Discworld fans (and everyone else): Associated Press reports that Terry Pratchett, author of the Discworld novels and others, has been diagnosed with a rare form of early onset Alzheimer's disease. "I would have liked to keep this one quiet for a little while, but ... it seems to me unfair to withhold the news," according to an online post by Pratchett, but "Frankly, I would prefer it if people kept things cheerful, because I think there's time for at least a few more books yet :o)".
