Here’s something that doesn’t happen every day. Terry Pratchett has been knighted.
Sir Terry , 60, best known for his hugely popular Discworld series of comic fantasy novels, has sold more than 55 million books worldwide.
He said: “There are times when phrases such as ‘totally astonished’ just don’t do the job.
“I am of course delighted and honoured and, needless to say, flabbergasted.”
A worthy recipient. I’ll be sure to congratulate the new C.B.E.
