In Memoriam

On this day, March 15th, in 2015, one of the world’s funniest writers died–an exceedingly bright, curious mind, a kind and loving heart, and a clear-eyed (yet often righteously angry) view of the world–the late and very great Sir Terry Pratchett. Damn the “embuggerment!” GNU Sir Terry.

And in case you’re wondering about the meaning of “GNU” in this context, here’s a link to an article published just two days after his death: https://www.theguardian.com/books/shortcuts/2015/mar/17/terry-pratchetts-name-lives-on-in-the-clacks-with-hidden-web-code#:~:text=(This%20was%20also%20a%20realworld,his%20name%20is%20still%20spoken.%E2%80%9D

Lauren enjoys playing loud music, ranting about anti-environmentalists, and collecting beer coasters, while drinking a fine British ale. Since the tender age of 15, she has struggled with the written word (and sometimes won). Lauren’s short stories and non-fiction have been published in journals and newspapers in the U.S. and the U.K.
