Short Story Sunday: Death and What Comes Next

This past week the world lost one of its greatest and most prolific fantasy writers in Terry Pratchett. Best known for his comedic and satirical Discworld novels, Pratchett wrote roughly two books every year and was the bestselling UK author of the 1990s. He was knighted for his service to literature.

Today I wanted to share his short story Death and What Comes Next, a Discworld story where Death debates mortality and quantum theory with a dying philosopher. If you’ve never read any Pratchett before, this will give you a taste of what his work is like. In related news, you should certainly read some of his books.

RIP Sir Pratchett.
