Terry Pratchett, whose books have sold more than 60 million copies worldwide and have been translated into 37 languages, will receive knighthood for his services to literature. Best known for his Discworld fantasy series, the author told the Bookseller, “I’m very grateful and pleased on behalf of the genre, because the fantasy genre lags behind the crime genre in, shall we say, appreciation.” He had been awarded an OBE in 1998, and commented on how life imitates art, in that Commander Vimes, from the Discworld series, is also knighted.
