Well, Poo!

From Terry Pratchett

AN EMBUGGERANCE                                                             


I would have liked to keep this one quiet for a little while, but
because of upcoming conventions and of course the need to keep my
publishers informed, it seems to me unfair to withhold the news. I have
been diagnosed with a very rare form of early onset Alzheimer’s, which
lay behind this year’s phantom "stroke".

We are taking it
fairly philosophically down here and possibly with a mild optimism. For
now work is continuing on the completion of Nation                        and the basic notes are already   being laid down for Unseen Academicals.
All other things being equal, I expect to meet most current and, as far
as possible, future commitments but will discuss things with the
various organisers. 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)

PS I would just like to draw attention to everyone reading the above
that this should be interpreted as ‘I am not dead’. I will, of course,
be dead at some future point, as will everybody else. For me, this
maybe further off than you think – it’s too soon to tell. I know it’s a
very human thing to say "Is there anything I can do", but in this case
I would only entertain offers from very high-end experts in brain
