Terry Pratchett’s daughter says The Shepherd’s Crown will be the last Discworld novel http://t.co/XCmvHPzIi8

I probably will never write in detail about the effect that the Discworld had on me as a lonely 16 year-old but knowing that the 41st Discworld novel will be the last is oddly comforting though obvisously still sad. But you have to be in awe of a series that has sustained 41 books without losing the joy of knowing its characters are returning, even if it is one last time.
And speaking of returning, The Long Utopia which Terry co-wrote with Stephen Baxter, is the 4th Long Earth book and it’s out this month and I guess then, after the 5th one, which the guardian reports was finished in March this year, that truly is the end.
