How sad to read the news that Diana Wynne Jones passed away. The British author of Howl’s Moving Castle and other amazing works of fantasy died after a long battle with cancer at age 76.
Neil Gaiman tweeted about the loss:
"Rest in Peace, Diana Wynne Jones. You shone like a star. The funniest, wisest, writer and the finest friend" and adding simply, "I miss you."
Fans can look forward to one final book from her coming this fall.
