Terry’s wreck & roller

Daily Star - - News -

A COM­PUTER drive which held Sir Terry Pratch­ett’s un­pub­lished works has been crushed by a steam­roller in line with his dy­ing wishes.

The wreck­age will go on dis­play at Sal­is­bury Mu­seum next month in an ex­hi­bi­tion ded­i­cated to the Dis­c­world au­thor who died in 2015, aged 66.

Cu­ra­tor Richard Henry said even the six-tonne steam­roller did not man­age to crush the hard drive com­pletely but added that it was now “a lit­tle worse for wear”.

Rob Wilkins, who man­ages the Pratch­ett es­tate, tweeted that the un­fin­ished books held on it had been de­stroyed.

He wrote on Twit­ter: “About to ful­fil my obli­ga­tion to Terry” while post­ing a pic­ture of the drive next to the ma­chine.

Fans reckon Sir Terry left 10 un­fin­ished nov­els.

DY­ING WISH: Pratch­ett
