Author, comedian and Terry Pratchett fan Marc Burrows is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the publication of the comic fantasy Discworld series with his beautiful tribute The Magic of Terry Pratchett

In 2020 Marc wrote the first biography of Sir Terry, which received critical acclaim, won a Locus Award and was embraced by fans. This live multimedia show based on the book was created with the full endorsement and support of Narrativia, the company founded to protect and promote the late author’s work in association with his estate. 

The Magic of Terry Pratchett is a comic lecture in which Burrows explores Pratchett's influences, his rise to fame, impact and unique life as a beloved storyteller.

From his days as a school librarian and a trainee journalist until his death in 2015, and in keeping with Pratchett’s style, the show is a gently comic celebration and exploration of his work.

It will also seriously examine his death, and the activism he was involved with towards the end of his life surrounding dementia treatment and the right to die; an important part of his story and legacy.

The show visits G-Live in Guildford on April 10 at 8pm.
