A hard drive with the unfinished works of world-famous British novelist Terry Pratchett has been crushed by a steamroller. That won't be the case for the dearly missed Sir Terry Pratchett, however, who declared before his death that his final works would never be released-and that wish was granted in style.
"It's surprisingly difficult to find somebody to run over a hard drive with a steamroller". One of the photos shows him holding a hard drive on which Pratchett's works were saved, and another (below) of the broken remains of the streamrolled hardware.
Henry, a fan of the Discworld author for many years, said he did not wish to know how many books were on the drive as it could "ruin the magic".More news: More than 2 million pilgrims start the Hajj in Mecca

He became an advocate for assisted dying, giving a moving lecture on the subject, Shaking Hands With Death, in 2010, and presenting a documentary for the BBC called Terry Pratchett: Choosing to Die.
According to The Guardian, Rob Wilkins, who manages the Pratchett estate, arranged for Pratchett's hard drive to be crushed by a vintage John Fowler & Co steamroller named Lord Jericho at the Great Dorset Steam Fair, ahead of the opening of a new exhibition about the author's life and work.
Terry Pratchett: His World opens on September 16 and will include artwork by the author and some of the treasured items he once owned.
