    I deferred Terry Pratchett for a long time. Ever adding his books to the 'wishlist' and 'sample' in Kindle but never emptying them out as 'bought' and 'read'. Long ago I chanced on "Color of Maggic" in the Discworld series. I flipped the first few pages several times but had no impetus to read further. Few weeks ago, I read his "Mort". I was bolted, and I hope I am using the word reasonably. The book was outright hilarious. Then I jumped onto other Discworld books and my last book in that series is "Small Gods". Comedy and Wit and Terry Pratchett has to be taken in the same breath. Now, I have almost become evangelical in popularizing his works. All I need is a witch hat to swear my allegiance to his writing.
