Terry Pratchett, “a wildly popular fantasy novelist who wrote more than 70 books”, had a final request prior to his death in 2015. Mr. Pratchett wanted “whatever he was working on at the time of his death to be taken out along with his computers, to be put in the middle of a road and for a steamroller to steamroll over them all.”

According to this post in the NY Times, his wish was finally granted last week. But Mr. Pratchett fans need not despair. His unfinished work will live on – at least in one form. “The crushed hard drive will be displayed at an exhibit on the author’s life and work, “Terry Pratchett: HisWorld,” which opens Sept. 16 at the Salisbury Museum in England.”
