Standalone - Nomes - Johnny Maxwell - Cooperations - Discworld - Discworld Spin-Offs - Short Fiction - Biographical Data
As the list of books and versions thereof has been growing and growing, I saw the need to split off the information into several files.
One file covers Discworld novels and short stories, the next covers all the Discworld-related stuff and the third one goes for everything non-discworldly.
Or, as divided into related section:
"For those who really need to know, Terry Pratchett was born in Buckinghamshire in 1948. He has managed to avoid all the really interesting jobs authors take in order to look good in this kind of biography. In his search for a quiet life he got a job as a Press Officer with the Central Electricity Generating Board just after Three Mile Island, which shows his unerring sense of timing. Now a full-time writer, he lives in Wiltshire with his wife and daughter. He likes people to buy him banana daiquiris (he knows people don't read author biographies, but feels this might be worth a try)." (Taken from 'Good Omens'.)
"Terry Pratchett was born in 1948 and is still not dead. He started work as a journalist one day in 1965 and saw his first corpse three hours later, work experience meaning something in those days. After doing just about every job it's possible to do in provincial journalism, exept of course covering Saturday afternoon football, he joined the Central Electricity Generating Board and became press officer for four nuclear power stations. He'd write a book about his experiences if he thought anyone would believe it [note: or at least wait until the material lost some of its volatile nature - i.e. in about 35,000 years...]
All this came to an end in 1987 when it became obvious that the Discworld series was much more enjoyable than real work. Since then the books have reached double figures and have a regular place in the bestseller lists. He also writes books for younger readers. Occasionally he gets accused of literature.
Terry Pratchett lives in Wiltshire with his wife Lyn and daughter Rhianna. He says writing is the most fun anyone can have by themselves." (Taken from 'Hogfather' paperback)
"Terry Pratchett is fifty and lives behind a keyboard in Wiltshire, where he answers letters in a desperate attempt to find time to write. He used to grow carnivorous plants, but now they've taken over the greenhouse and he avoids going in. He feels it may be time to get a life, since apparently they're terribly useful." (Taken from 'The Last Continent'.)
"Terry Pratchett is Britain's best-selling living novelist. He lives behind a keyboard in Wiltshire and says he 'doesn't want to get a life, because it feels as though he's trying to lead three already.'" (Taken from 'The Fifth Elephant'.)
"Terry Pratchett is the author of the phenomenal Discworld series, and is Britain's bestselling living novellist. He was appointed OBE in 1998." (Taken from 'Thief of Time'.)
