The Guardian reports that Sir Terry Pratchett "has received consent forms requesting assisted suicide but has not yet signed them." He was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in late 2007 and among other great works, is creator of the fantastic Discworld Series. He has said of his decision that he does not "believe in a duty to suffer the worst ravages of terminal illness" and hopes to be "helped across the step" when the time comes.
