He was one of the writers that helped shape me. He was, I think, the first who showed me that taking yourself seriously all the time was a good way to overlook your own failings. And that laughing at your own failings when looking at them was a great way of not letting them blot out the world. Because we're all people, and we're all ridiculous.

He was also the first who took the books I enjoyed reading at the time as escapism(yes, I loved heroic fantasy), and showed me how ridiculous they actually were in their essentialism. And managed to do so while getting me to laugh with him, because I saw the ridiculous as well when he pointed it out.

To PTerry, may your travel across the desert be short, and may affectionate cats await you on the other side.
