Rowling for me, as I haven't read much Pratchett.
Slow and steady wins the race.

This is difficult, the reasons for voting for either are many...
I'll think about it.

Following my question on the other battle, which one I'd be happier re-reading, I have to go with Pratchett, as every time I read his books I find different things to focus on :)

Love both, but Pratchett has a bigger body of work and did it over a long period.
I will expand your TBR pile.

I mean, I really love Harry Potter, but Pratchett's smarter, more entertaining, and has a much larger body of high-quality creative work.
