Tonight’s story is presented in honour of fantasy author Terry Pratchett (1948-2015), who passed away earlier this week.

Unlike so many conventional practictioners of the genre, Pratchett had an eminently practical attitude toward fantasy. After all, his fantasy books were often far more realistic than so much of the pernicious rubbish our would-be modern masters are constantly endeavouring to fob off on us as “reality”. As Pratchett himself wrote:

The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.
