From The Guardian:
Plans to erect a bronze statue of Terry Pratchett in Salisbury are gathering pace after campaigners received the backing of the city council.
Almost 9,000 people have signed a petition calling for a permanent statue of the Discworld author, who died last year, to be installed in a prominent position in his hometown. Started by resident and designer Emily Brand, the campaign has received the backing of Pratchett’s family, as well as his friend and fellow author Neil Gaiman.
“He would have said something a bit sarcastic about it, and have been secretly very pleased. And then he would have discovered that you can hide something inside a statue, and confided in all his friends that in a few hundred years people would be in for a surprise … I hope the statue gets made,” Gaiman wrote on Facebook, urging his followers to sign the petition.
