The novel will focus on his character Tiffany Aching, a trainee-witch who has already featured in four of the celebrated author’s books.

Terry’s first ‘Discworld’ novel, ‘The Colour Of Magic’, was released in 1983, and ‘The Shepherd’s Crown’ will be the 41st in the series.

During his career, Terry sold over 80 million books worldwide, and thousands of fans paid tribute to the author following his death on 12 March 2015.

The sad news was confirmed on the author’s Twitter account, with a series of tweets that ended with the post: “Terry took Death’s arm and followed him through the doors and on to the black desert under the endless night.”

Ricky Gervais, David Cameron and Caitlin Moran were among the famous faces who shared their condolences.
