The late author Terry Pratchett's wishes, which his estate obeyed in dramatic fashion, were that his unpublished work be destroyed.

So how do we have previously unknown work from a famous — long famous, in fact — author who died nearly a decade ago?

Because Pratchett published them under a pseudonym.

The Guardian's reviewer isn't particularly impressed by the twenty stories — previously published and thus not "incomplete" — that comprise A Stroke of the Pen.

But you can be the judge before committing to the whole collection; the story "How It All Began..." is available for free at Literary Hub.

Powered by his Discworld series, Pratchett has sold over 35 million books worldwide translated into over thirty languages.
