Octarine - the Terry Pratchett fanlisting



Quite simply, a fanlisting is a site that gathers a list of fans of a particular subject. It is -not- a mailing list. If you're concerned about your e-mail address being listed, simply state on the join form that you'd like it to be hidden.

This is the only fanlisting for Terry Pratchett approved and listed by The Fanlistings Network. I adopted it in March 2014 from Lorraine, who was kind enough to let me take over. Lorraine had named the fanlisting "Octarine", a name I gladly kept. Octarine is the colour of magic according to Pratchett himself.

I run this site because I've been a fantasy nerd for as long as I can remember, and Terry Pratchett is one of my all-time favourite authors. The Discworld series alone is such a unique and creative project, not just in fantasy but in literature in general.

Terry Pratchett

Sir Terence David John "Terry" Pratchett is an English author of fantasy novels, especially comical works. He is best known for the Discworld series of about 40 volumes. Pratchett's first novel, The Carpet People, was published in 1971, and since his first Discworld novel (The Colour of Magic) was published in 1983, he has written two books a year on average. His Discworld book, Snuff, was at the time of its release the third-fastest-selling hardback adult-audience novel since records began in the United Kingdom, selling 55,000 copies in the first three days.

Pratchett was the UK's best-selling author of the 1990s, and has sold over 85 million books worldwide in 37 languages. He is currently the second most-read writer in the UK, and seventh most-read non-US author in the US.

Pratchett was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 1998 and was knighted for services to literature in the 2009 New Year Honours. In 2001 he won the annual Carnegie Medal for The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents, the first Discworld book marketed for children.
