I can't wait to hear what he has to say about this much deserved (in my opinion anyway) honour!

Just to confirm, I assume this relates to Terry Pratchett who receives a knighthood in the New Year's Honours List:
Daily Telegraph

You mean another honour besides being the Dean and wryter-in-resydence of the Unseen Universyty of Hystoryans of Ankh-Morpok, Lancre and wyder Discworld?

He certainly deserves that.

Best wishes
Ernest

I heard (Sir) Terry Pratchett being interviewed on the radio this morning ... I gather he plans to continue writing under the name Terry Pratchett....

I have no objection to Terry Pratchett and greatly admire his recent show of courage. However I most admire those who reject this honour nonsense.

I knew I'd find a thread here at mudcat about this - though I have to admit the fine ladies of MMarioKKnits alerted me several hours before the start of this thread.

I love having connections around the world!

At last!
Someone whose genius has been recognised before he is in his dotage and unable to enjoy it.

Ankh Morpork will be celibrating tonight and Dibbler will sell hundreds of his famous rat on a sticks.

I absolutely adore Discworld and other Pratchett creations.

However, I don't agree with how the British honours system is managed. Cliquish, cheap, outdated, and alarmingly misrepresentative of what some of the recipients supposedly stand for, and negatively politically charged.

Wish Terry had added his name to the list of decliners

I heard him say in a radio interview that all he wants now is a horse and shining armour to be a proper knight!!!!!
