The Embuggerance gets serious

Oh man, schlechte Nachrichten: Ich habe mich schon riesig darauf gefreut, in meinem Sommerurlaub wieder auf der Discworld Convention mit vielen gleichgesinnten Fans zu Feiern und Die Gegenwart von Terry Pratchett zu genießen. Der erste Teil wird stattfinden, der zweite Teil aus einem sehr traurigen Grund nicht. Die Alzheimererkrankung von Terry Pratchett hat wohl nun das letzte Stadium erreicht:

„I have been putting off writing this announcement for quite some time
and on good days thought I wouldn’t have to write it at all. However,
it is with great reluctance that I have to tell you all that I will
not be able to attend the upcoming Discworld Convention in Manchester.
I am very sorry about this, but I have been dodging the effects of PCA
and have been able to write for much longer than any of us ever
thought possible, but now The Embuggerance is finally catching up with
me, along with other age-related ailments. I know people will have
already made plans far in advance and some will be travelling a long
way, but this is the first time ever that I have been unable to attend
a UK convention and I really am very sorry. They say time marches on,
and it does, even though I have been running very fast to keep one
step ahead of it. I really was looking forward to seeing your smiley,
happy faces. Have fun everyone. Yes, on this occasion, have lots of
fun.“ Terry Pratchett, July 2014
