Some news about Terry Pratchett has appeared on Paul Kidby's website.
http://www.paulkidby.com/news/index.html

Hopefully this will not be a major issue for a long time, and we can all continue to enjoy the Discworld series for many more years.

Yes, I saw this at: http://www.smh.com.au/news/books/terry-pratchett-diagnosed-with-alzheimers/2007/12/13/1197135601731.html
Perhaps you are missing a word in your post?

I would like to say this is sad news and I feel for Terry. Fans may be disappointed the supply of Discworld books may not go on forever, but it is the personal cost I feel for.

Terry Pratchett has recently donated a large amount ($1million or 500,000ST) for Alzheimer's research. Now there's a site that is asking for fans (and anyone else) to "match it for Pratchett"...

http://www.matchitforpratchett.org/

Importantly (and reassuringly), the first option they list is to donate directly to the research foundation (rather than via the site).

A UK town (sister city to Ankh-Morpock, even) has named some new streets after ones from Discworld.

It seems that Sir Terry is about to embark upon writing (finishing) a science fiction novel!
If it's anywhere near the quality of his Discworld stuff, we can all rejoice.
