More Information
Terry Pratchett, born 1948, is not only incredibly prolific but also Britain's best-selling, living, author. He was first in print at the age of fifteen with a short story published in Science Fantasy, since then he would appear to never to have left his writing desk. To his credit, the huge output has not affected the quality. His work falls firmly into the love it or hate it category and for those who love it he is unrivalled.

His work has, not unsurprisingly, attracted the attention of collectors.  The Colour of Magic being by far the most valuable, a solid five figure sum at the time of writing. It is also genuinely rare, with only 500 copies, collectors should note the the jacket is un-priced but had a publishers sticker for 7.95. Beware of later issue jackets with reviews to flaps. As the series increased in popularity so did the print runs. Later titles are not difficult to locate so collectors should only really consider fine copies in fine jackets. Terry Pratchett is also something of a signer, so once again serious collectors may want to buy only signed copies of the easier books. Whilst it is dangerous to speculate on the future value of an authors work, Pratchett has to be regarded as something of a safe bet, his popularity certainly shows no sign of slowing and as a new generation of collectors begin to emerge there is likely to be even greater demand for his 1st editions.

There have also been a lot of spin-off material generated. We have included some of the more pertinent items but there are also plays, diaries and various ephemeral items. ( Pratchet )
