Rhianna Pratchett Will Inherit Discworld

In a recent interview with the New Statesman, Sir Terry Pratchett discussed his plans to hand the Discworld series over to his daughter, video game writer Rhianna Pratchett, once he’s no longer able to write. Pratchett also acknowledged suffering an atrial fibrillation in the back of a New York taxi earlier this month, which he survived  thanks to CPR performed by his assistant Rob Wilkins. The attack made Pratchett consider the future of his work.  Rhianna Pratchett will be a co-writer on the upcoming BBC Discworld series The Watch, and will write the Discworld books when Pratchett eventually retires. “The Discworld is safe in my daughter’s hands,” Pratchett said.
