In Praise of Terry Pratchett

Let me say first off that if you don't like fantasy and you don't like to laugh, you will not like Terry Pratchett...nor will you like this post, so it's best if you move along.

However, if you like all three as I do, read on!

Back in 1997, long before I met Sir Pratchett (in the literary sense), I was directing a film in Big Bend. For those of you unfamiliar with Texas, it is a national park right Read more of this blog post »
