After more than two years since the death of Sir Terry Pratchett, author of the internationally acclaimed Discworld fantasy series, his estate manager finally executed a rather cartoonish provision of his estate plan.
His last request? Remove the hard drive of incomplete works from his personal computer, drop it in the street and drive a steamroller over it. Friend and estate manager Rob Wilkins carried out the flattening at the Great Dorset Steam Fair this past August. The crushed remains will sit on display at an upcoming exhibition at the Salisbury Museum celebrating Pratchett - his life, his wicked sense of humor and his immeasurable contribution to literature.
