Pratchett wins at the Galaxy Book Awards

Terry Pratchett and Martin Amis both picked up lifetime achievement awards at the inaugural Galaxy National Book Awards this week. Stephen Fry’s The Fry Chronicles beat former British prime minister Tony Blair’s memoir A Journey in the Tesco Biography of the Year.

Pratchett said: “I’m amazed, you find something that you like doing and do well and keep on doing it and suddenly they give you an award, when all I was really doing was having a lot of fun.”
