Diana Wynne Jones

Sad news today: Diana Wynne Jones, awesome author of fantasy books has died after a long battle with lung cancer. Her friend Neil Gaiman tweeted about this yesterday.

I have loved her books for a long time, and was so pleased when the Harry Potter phenomenon meant that all her books became available (prior to that, finding her books meant searching second-hand bookshops or libraries). She wrote thoughtful, inventive, funny books, with believable characters; and children’s literature, in particular, will be the poorer for her loss.
