Personal Quote:

[His response to a TIME magazine article crediting J.K. Rowling with reinventing the fantasy genre]: "Ever since "The Lord of the Rings" revitalized the genre, writers have played with it, reinvented it, subverted it and bent it to their times. It has also contained some of the very best, most accessible writing for children, by writers who seldom get the acknowledgment they deserve". See more »

Trivia:

His most popular books take place on the imaginary Discworld, a flat, circular world which is carried through space on the backs of four elephants which in turn stand on the back of the great space turtle, A'tuin. See more »
