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.ReplyDelete
What are your favourites?

- 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 :)ReplyDelete

I'm presuming you know about The Book Depository...ReplyDelete
