"Look, behind all this astonishment is the fact that until the late '90s, my publishing history in the U.S. was dire: Books came out late, in the wrong order, with strange covers and little in the way of promotion, while in the U.K., I was a number-one best-seller twice a year, every year."
Pratchett added: "It was awful. That began to change hugely about seven years ago, ... and sales are very good, so I value the nomination in itself as some kind of slap on the back for hanging in there."
