Terry Pratchett: serious illness?

A report from Guy’s blog at newswireless.net suggests that favourite author Terry Pratchett has been diagnosed with Alzheimers. His report:

It has his signature on it: a bulletin on Discworld News reveals that, after all, SF/Fantasy writer and humourist Terry Pratchett is not dead, and doesn’t expect to be for some time. That’s the good news; the bad news is that the “phantom stroke” he suffered earlier this year is actually a serious illness.

Discworld News seems to be kosher (says NewsWireless) but Guy Kewney warns that he hasn’t been able to check the story with Terry himself.
