A Slip of the Keyboard Collected Nonfiction review Õ 3 Terry Pratchett has earned a place in the hearts of readers the world over with his bestselling Discworld series but in recent years he has become eually well known and respected as an outspoken campaigner for causes including Alzheimer's research and animal rights A Slip of the Keyboard brings tog. I love Terry Pratchett s humor even in talking about his Alzheimer s and assisted death Oh and this book prompted me to write my first ever fan letter Here it isDear Sir Terry PratchettI am not a Kevin I don t want you to write my loved one into one of your books I m not a writer but a reader so I live on the other side of the Holy Grail I already know where great ideas come from They come from books great and small and minds great and small I m not a librarian but I do work in a library and have managed book stores and have my own online bookstore from which I sell my own personal collection the ones I can bare to let go and all that to say that I find your books to be uite real You are among my favorite authors but I m not doing any projects and so don t reuire you to fill out any surveys I m probably definitely not your biggest fan I haven t read all of your books but I plan to eventually I m being rather stingy with them trying to take them slowly I seem to exist somewhere in the midrange of your readership and although I have many favorite books The Wee Free Men consistently falls within my favorite top ten I discovered it in 2010 when we as a family read it together We have a habit of reading during dinner taking turns so that everyone gets a chance to be a bit of a ham and the others get a chance to eat Do you know how difficult it is to find a book to interest a range of readers from 40something adults to boys ages 18 and 15 and a girl age 8 That is a rare book I know that your time is precious and I don t reuire a response I just wanted to say thank you Not only for me but also for my children thank you You have been a glorious inspiration I m so glad that for the most part you have had fun and that we have had the opportunity to benefit from itGratefully yours KevinRegina Miller Fierke

A Slip of the Keyboard Collected Nonfiction review Õ 3 Ether for the first time the finest examples of Pratchett's non fiction writing both serious and surreal from musings on mushrooms to what it means to be a writer and why banana daiuiris are so important; from memories of Granny Pratchett to speculation about Gandalf's love life and passionate defe. The late great Sir Terry Pratchett deity of Discworld has made me laugh an awful lot over the past few years OK decades with his richly imaginative fantasy series In a departure from his normal output this is a collection of articles speeches and letters that he has written since the late 1980 s But over recent years he has become eually well known for being an outspoken campaigner for causes such as orang utans and of course Alzheimer s and assisted death This collection is the very best of those articles grouped under three headings A Scribbling intruder A Twit and a Dreamer and Days of Rage From the time he announced that he had Posterior Cortical Atrophy he has moved from the hazy lights of the science fiction and fantasy convention world into the brighter glare of the modern media world And in this world he showed his humanity through humour and elouence and that a multi million best selling author could be a regular bloke with a fondness for banana daiuiris s He writes on subjects as diverse as hats past head teachers why elves are bastards his beloved grandmother and being a genuinely absentminded professorHis writing is brilliant And poignant And funny really funny And this is nonfiction too The way that he observed life and people is unparalleled a talent that he used to highlight injustices and the freuent idiocy of the world that we live in and explore within the world he created But what comes through this collection is his wit and humour The letter he sent to The Times about tax is a classic example of restrained wit and there are other examples all the way through Really pleased to have read this it is a great collection Even though he is seen as purely a fantasy writer I hope that the wider literary world will come to fully appreciate the genius in his writing in time

A Slip of the Keyboard Collected Nonfiction review Õ 3 Nces of the causes dear to himWith all the humour and humanity that have made his novels so enduringly popular this collection brings Pratchett out from behind the scenes of the Discworld to speak for himself man and boy bibliophile and computer geek champion of hats orang utans and Dignity in Dyin. I am not a Pratchett fan not yet My wife and my sister in law are making their way through the whole corpus So it s sort of odd I picked this up in part thanks to a review by Sam uixote that pointed me to his writing about assisted suicide I had thought of Pratchett as a fantasy writer and humorist a jolly elf writing in the mode of other funny fantasy writers such as Douglas Adams Been there done that and I enjoyed that ride but I had no particular interest in going back in that direction reallySo this is a collection of essays that span Pratchett s career focusing on his life as a writer traveling the globe writing about various topics His Days of Rage section really began to draw me in in particular though Pratchett was diagnosed in his fifties with Alzheimers so he began writing angrily and insightfully and often movingly about this These essays were for me the best part of the book and you know just might lead me into his Discworld
