Aw, just heard about Diana Wynne Jones. I found her books when I was a wee grade school student haunting the W-Z shelves of the library (and rest of the shelves, but I've always had a soft spot for my fellow end-of-the-alphabetters).

Thanks for this post. There's quite a few of her books I haven't read yet. I loved the Dalemark Quartet, but it's such a long time since I read them I can't give specifics. Dogsbody is one of those books I reread every couple of years and it breaks my heart in a good way every time. I wrote a "fix-it" for it as a Yuletide treat a few years ago. Fire & Hemlock is my favorite - it's so twisty and non-linear and mythic.

Her books have moved, comforted, inspired and entertained me for a long time and I feel quite lucky that I have more to read.
