Feeling Feelings: Terry Pratchett’s Heartbreaking EoL Documentary
And Now For Something Completely Different
Terry Pratchett is one of our favorite fantasy authors, the Discworld series being a place that we’ve returned to time and time again… He has also been diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s and since then has become a personally invested advocate of Alzehimer’s research and of the legalization of assisted death.
His documentary Choosing to Die was released in June, but we only became aware of it today. And when I heard him say “When I can no longer write my books, I’m not sure that will want to go on living,” it was hard to not listen to the reasoned case and research of a man whose written work has given me so much joy. Especially as someone who wants to write books myself.
