Terry Pratchett suffered (and eventually died of) early onset Alzheimer's;
he kept trying to write to the end. In fact, DODGER was written by dictation
since by then he was no longer able to type. I used the somewhat off-key
portrayal of the Patrician in RAISING STEAM as a hint the Patrician was also
beginning to fade, hence my fanfic "Erasure" where Vimes is called upon as
Blackboard Monitor.
