This one was going for "tearjerker" - it kinda works that way for me, a second one for Pratchett:

TTTO Blowing In The Wind:
How many books can an author give to us
When the fates have become so unkind
And why there's no more joys he can he at our feet
Is a question I'll admit I've often whined
How many more years would it be till he'd given
Us the contents of that wonderous mind?
The answer my friend...
(is blowing in the wind? One that never ends?) blowing in the wind. The answer is blowing in the wind.

How many years can the Discworld be real
In the minds of so many loving fans
How many stories did we deserve to enjoy
About a strangely real seeming land?
Just how can you handle that the gods cheated us of
Even more books written by that hand?
The answer my friends...

Well the signal can't be stopped is a lesson that we learned
From the people who ran the Firefly
G-N-U Terry Pratchet has continued to this day
As a way to keep his mem'ry alive
But the question still remains, so be sure we will demand
That the universe explain to us WHY?
But that answer my friend...

In another hundred years he'll be part of the canon of English Literature along with Dickens, and Shakespeare, and Chaucer.

And Heinlein. And, probably, J. K. Rowling.

Amen to both... though it's fascinating how literature gets ever more impossible to keep up with, even for good, fast readers.

Unavoidable, because people keep writing more books, but the old ones don't go away :-D

I sure hope so. Nation, especially, stands out for me as amazing, and the best turnaround of embarrassing humanity I'd ever imagined. (The local tall-tale teller turns a moment of human frailty into proof of real heroism. It's good enough that I don't want to spoil it.)

Tour in Verona.

“Adoro viaggiare in Segway”. Il modo migliore per cadere in amore con Verona in nessun tempo!
Quando si dispone di un breve tempo a coprire una citta, questo e un ottimo modo per farlo. Mi e piaciuto molto il nostro tour e guida. L'audio e stato un po' difficile, ma la guida li ha tenuti lavorando. Quando il suo caldo, questo e un ottimo modo per andare in giro e stare un po' fredda. Verona e una citta facile accesso per segway intorno. Abbiamo visto tutti i principali siti e ci hanno dato una buona sensazione per il layout della citta. Siamo stati in grado di tornare a pochi posti il giorno successivo per un po' di tempo.
