A Slip of the Keyboard: Collected Non-fiction by Terry Pratchett

Terry Pratchett in his own words

With a foreword by Neil Gaiman


Terry Pratchett earned a place in the hearts of readers the world over with his bestselling Discworld series - but in recent years he became equally well-known as an outspoken campaigner for causes including Alzheimer's research and animal rights. A Slip of the Keyboard brings together the best of Pratchett's non fiction writing on his life, on his work, and on the weirdness of the world: from Granny Pratchett to Gandalf's love life; from banana daiquiris to books that inspired him; from getting started as a writer to the injustices that he fought to end.

With his trademark humour, humanity and unforgettable way with words, this collection offers an insight behind the scenes of Discworld into a much loved and much missed figure - man and boy, bibliophile and computer geek, champion of hats, orang-utans and the right to a good death.

His life and legacy will always be cause for celebration * Guardian *
Bright, funny, insightful, warm...a man who truly knew how to enjoy life...and books -- George R.R. Martin
Wise and funny...my unlikely hero -- A.S. Byatt
