Oh, this is so sad to hear! Especially since I've been sitting here this morning regretting that I never knew one of our late elders (buried him last week) liked to read and even WROTE science fiction as a hobby; I would have loved to talk to Lou about science fiction, what he liked to read, and to read what he wrote.

And now DWJ....oddyssia introduced me to Diane Wynne Jones' fiction many years ago, with "DOGSBODY", "FIRE & HEMLOCK", and "WITCH WEEK". Later I looked for more, including the rest of the Chrestomanci series, "Howl's Moving Castle", "Seven Days of Luke", "Archer's Goon", and "Deep Magic". I was always a little irritated that JK Rowling receieved so much praise for inventing a 'magical Britain' when Diane did it earlier, and in my opinion, better. I was so glad when "Howl's Moving Castle" was animated by Studio Ghibli, and more so that Disney gave it a greater distribution, because then suddenly Diane Wynne Jones' books were back in print, and more widely available, especially on this side of the Pond.

I am really sad about this. She was one of the best!
