Michael is a software developer from Germany who has a fondness for books that has gotten slightly out of hand. He spends a lot of his free time with writing stories, adding books to the ever-growing piles next to the sofa, and gradually converting his living room into a workshop for doing traditional bookbinding.

“As much as he loved Old Earth artefacts, it was tremendously frustrating at times to know that it wasn’t possible to prove the original purpose of so many of them. Spotting an object he had puzzled over for the past two years, he stopped at its shelf, picked up the crumpled piece of plastic, and unfolded it until it had the approximate shape of a woman. She could be inflated by blowing air into an attached valve. Although he did have his suspicions as to what she was for (and he blushed even thinking about it—he described her as a ‘portable statue of a surprised female’ to potential customers), he still yearned to know whether he was right or not.”

“He felt like a dog that was about to be told that, yes, he was a good boy, but his balls had to come off anyway.”

“Old Earth rotated slowly and majestically on its axis, reassuringly unperturbed by recent events.”
Michael K. Schaefer, In Memory: A Tribute to Sir Terry Pratchett

“Tuesdays are the worst. They are the spoiled leftovers of Mondays, repackaged with a new expiry date.”
Sorin Suciu, In Memory: A Tribute to Sir Terry Pratchett

“An Irish pub, such as you have seen a thousand times before. The kind where the emphasis is on the “ish” rather than on the proud name of Éire.”
Sorin Suciu, In Memory: A Tribute to Sir Terry Pratchett

“Alas, between the “shouldn’t” and the “shouldn’t have”—that is precisely where life happens.”
Sorin Suciu, In Memory: A Tribute to Sir Terry Pratchett

“He gave Robert an apparently meaningful wink that failed to convey any meaning at all.”

“Her computer’s fan whirred to life, blowing warm air onto her fingers. Two flame-red slits glowed from the monitor. The speakers boomed. “I lived! I died! I live again!”
Olivie had dealt with blue screens, frozen hourglasses, and even the odd hardware conflict back in the day. This was new.”
Choong JayVee, In Memory: A Tribute to Sir Terry Pratchett
