R.I.P Diana Wynne Jones
March 27th, 2011
The wonderful Diana Wynne Jones, author of the Chrestomanci series (amongst many others) has died. She is one of my all-time writing heroines. If you love children’s fantasy and you haven’t read her books yet, you are in for a treat. Go to the library, your local bookshop or wherever and start reading her IMMEDIATELY. The world has lost a wonderful author and a fine and funny imagination.
If you’d like to read about her extraordinary childhood, she has written about it here.
And here is a very fine obituary from Neil Gaiman.
