The Shepherd's Crown: the Final Discworld Novel

Any proceeds I may received from the sale of this set will go to the charity The Research Institute for the Care of Older People (Rice).

Rice is the charity chosen by Pratchett’s family and by his long-term assistant, Rob Wilkins. The Bath-based organization, which supports those with Alzheimer’s disease and carries out research into the aging process, has cared for Pratchett since 2008.

This September Penguin Random House will be publishing The Shepherd’s Crown, the final Discworld novel by Sir Terry Pratchett. Editor Kirsten Armstrong bought Exclusive World All Language rights (excluding US, US dependencies and Philippines) from Colin Smythe of Colin Smythe Ltd.

 

The Shepherd’s Crown is the fifth Discworld novel featuring young witch Tiffany Aching.  Previous titles in the Tiffany Aching sequence include: The Wee Free Men, A Hat Full of Sky, Wintersmith and I Shall Wear Midnight.

 

Terry completed THE SHEPHERD’S CROWN in the summer of 2014. It will be published in hardback, ebook and audio formats on September 10th 2015, and is now available for preorder.  A collector’s edition will also be available.

Terry’s writing is loved and respected the world over and this publication will be an incredibly important and special event for us all at Penguin Random House, and for fans and readers everywhere.’

A Tribute...

Yesterday was a sad day for many FOLs with the passing of the literary great Sir Terry Pratchett

Pratchett's Discworld series and other works bought pleasure to millions of readers and those works have inspired numerous MOCs from our community.

I am proud that I was able to get the LEGO Discworld Campaign to 10,000 supporters while he was still with us and eagerly await the results of the review.  The fact that the project reached that level is a great demonstration of love his readers have for his creations.

This article is a brief tribute to his works in LEGO form. Each image is a link to the builder.
