Final Discworld Novel Coming This Year

Terry Pratchett

The last novel by the late Sir Terry Pratchett will be released in September.

It was announced today that the final novel by Sir Terry Pratchett will be the last novel in the highly celebrated Discworld series.

The novel, originally scheduled for release last year, will be called 'The Shepherd's Crown' and will feature recurring character Tiffany Aching. This will be the 41st novel in the series which began with the classic 'The Colour of Magic' in 1983.

Tom Weldon, CEO of Penguin Random House, said: "It is a huge privilege to be publishing Sir Terry Pratchett's final Discworld novel, The Shepherd's Crown. Terry's writing is loved and respected the world over and this publication will be an incredibly important and special event for us all at Penguin Random House, and for fans and readers everywhere."

Sir Terry Pratchett sadly passed away in March this year due to complications from Alzheimer's Disease, a condition he had been suffering from for the past eight years. He had revealed last year that he had written another novel and that it was to be released later in the year, unfortunately the novel had to be postponed due to health reasons and his fans will be filled with mixed emotions following this news.

We are looking forward to reading the final chapter in Discworld's epic saga but it will be with melancholy that it's creator will miss his fan's impressions.

The Shepherd's Crown will be released worldwide on 10th September 2015.
