Very sad to hear about the death of Terry Pratchett. I only met him once, at a conference in the Netherlands. We chatted about the Rollright stones and how much we admired the work of Ronald Hutton. What I remember about the exchange was the sparkle in his eyes, the warm benevolent feeling he emanated. There’s a good obituary for him on The Wild Hunt blog, with favourite quotes offered by Pagan authors. Vivienne and Chris Crowley offer a lovely one:
It was a place where witches met. 
Tonight a fire gleamed on the very crest of the hill. Dark figures moved in the flickering light. 
The moon coasted across a lacework of clouds. 
Finally a tall, pointy-hatted figure said, ‘You mean everyone brought potato salad?’

  1. One Great wizard of words and images – with so much humor and joy! I am sure we will able to see his smile if only we look at The World of the Disk!
