A Slip of the Keyboard: Collected Non-Fiction is a collection of essays and other non-fiction from Terry Pratchett (info from amazon.co.uk).
A quote on writing by Terry:
‘…I have to write because if I don’t get something down then after a while I feel it’s going to bang the side of my head off.’ (Pratchett 2009 cited Preston 2009)
