Fantasy lost a good friend recently when Diana Wynne Jones died at the age of 76. Never heard of her? We’re not surprised. Jones worked for decades under the radar, writing witty, engaging fantasy for kids and teens (and adults!) and was the inspiration for the spectacular Japanese gem, Howl’s Moving Castle by the renowned director Hayao Miyazaki.
Never read Diana Wynne Jones? We hope you won’t be able to say that much longer…reserve one of her fantastic reads today.
