Quote by Terry Pratchett :

The most watched programme on the BBC, after the news, is probably ‘Doctor Who.’ What has happened is that science fiction has been subsumed into modern literature. There are grandparents out there who speak Klingon, who are quite capable of holding down a job. No one would think twice now about a parallel universe.

Quote by Terry Pratchett :

I was a very keen reader of science fiction, and during the time I was going to libraries, it was good, written by people who knew their science.

Quote by Terry Pratchett :

I got into science fiction by being interested in astronomy first.

Quote by Terry Pratchett :

Quote by Terry Pratchett : “There is a soak-the-ri”

There is a soak-the-rich attitude in the air, a feeling that if you have a lot of money you must have got it by some ghastly means. I can quite happily say there was never any family money. All the money we got was mine, just from writing books.
