Aw....I have that one book of hers for ages (dunno the English title, its about a torques and a curse on it.) I love it.
And the Chrestomanci of course.

May her journey be easy. Sad

I got the news from SF Signal, and Neil Gaiman's Twitter. I adore her Tough Guide to Fantasyland, the Howl books, and Chrestomanci series. She will be very much missed.

New at the Nightwalking Hedgehog- Updates and General Shit with revealing new photo.


I dance upon the edge of shadow
flickering through the night.
An ember smouldering in my heart
is my only guide, my light.

Lyric and I got the news from John Scalzi's site. The Homeward Bounders is my favorite DWJ book and one of my favorites period.
