Andrea K Höst: Books, with a Side-order of Rambling
I've never read any of her stuff, though I did get a boxed set of her novels for younger readers for a nephew on the recommendation of a friend.What are your favourites?
Seriously? Hell, Dave, what were you wasting your time on the whole of your reading life? Well, if nothing else you can have a fabulous times glomming everything Diana Wynne Jones has ever written.- The Chrestomanci series is a must-buy. Start with "Lives of Christopher Chant".- Howl's Moving Castle. Just a delight.- Dogsbody. A star punished with dog form.- Eight Days of Luke. [You'll see her influence on Gaiman here.]- Black Maria (aka Aunt Maria). Aunt Maria is the most evil of evil creatures.- The Power of Three.- Homeward Bounders.
What can I say? I've never quite gotten around to Octavia Butler, Madeleine L'Engel or Ursula Le Guin, either. I have disgraceful gaps in my education :)Thanks for the recommendations. I shall begin the hunt.
I'm presuming you know about The Book Depository...http://www.bookdepository.com/search?searchTerm=diana+wynne+jones
