New Diana Wynne Jones Book!!!!!

The last book Diana was working on before her death,  The Islands of Chaldea, has been finished, and will be out in the summer of 2014!!!!  It was nearly completed, but had no ending...happily, her sister Ursula was able to finish it.

Here is the Publishers Weekly article with all the information.

I did not know that Ursula was a children's book writer in her own right.  I certainly did not realize that the Ursula Jones who wrote one of the books that has been sitting on my very own TBR pile for almost a year, The Lost King, was Diana's sister.  Guess what I'm reading this weekend...

(which would be Ursula's book.  Not Diana's.  Not yet....)



    Oh. I call dibs to read it in July.

    1. Oh no====== The book by Ursula who finished it is in my TBR. Sorrys.

  2. Oh. My heart wrenched when I saw this. And continues to. I miss Diana Wynne Jones's books a lot, a lot, a lot.

  3. I don't know...I'm going to be VERY interested to see the reviews on this one. I mean, one more DWJ book--!!! But I've been burned by "books finished by a new author" before. Oh well, at least now I know the possibility of one last DWJ book is out there--thanks!

  4. This is going to be so interesting! You know I only found out that DWJ had died like last week (I'm a little behind times). I was pretty devastated by that, but I'm excited to find out her last book was at least finished!
