Diana Wynne Jones: 1924 to 2011

I was deeply saddened to learn that Diana Wynne Jones, author of the Chrestomanci books, Howl's Moving Castle, and about a thousand other insanely awesome and profoundly weird children's and YA fantasy novels, died on March 26th. My deepest sympathy goes out to her family, as well as sincere gratitude for the books she shared with the world. They made my childhood (and, indeed, my adulthood) considerably more fun.
