Goodbye, Diana Wynne Jones

Diana Wynne Jones isn't with us any more--she died last night, and the world is poorer for it.

Her books have given me so much to enjoy and savor that I will be forever grateful to her.

(stares at screen and cries)

added: here's a link to the compilation of DWJ quotes on Goodreads. I'm glad the giant marrow is here--nobody has every included a giant marrow in a fantasy book more successfully than DWJ.

  2. Other others I love have died before, but somehow this one hurts.

    I'm definitely more than a little teary this morning.
