Random Diana Gabaldon stuff

213lrxl3ekl__aa_sl160_.jpgI’ve been debating whether to get the new Diana Gabaldon novella collection (“Lord John and the Hand of Devils”) – I’ve already read two, but you know, there is one new story, and it’ll be nice to have them all in a single book…

21rws6uoptl__aa_sl160_.jpgI need to be sensible, but it’s difficult when they’ve given it such a beautiful cover – and the UK version (upper left) is even better than the US cover (right).  Arrrghhh…

In other news, Ms Gabaldon has announced the title of the new Jamie and Claire book – it’s “An Echo in the Bone”.  A rather interesting and unusual title.  She explains how it came about on her website – definitely worth a read. 

On the other hand, don’t hold your breath waiting for it to come out – she’s planning on finishing it end of 2008, and then it’s up to the publisher to decide when to release it, so I’m thinking sometime in 2009, at the very earliest.  Having said that, the last book, “A Breath of Snow and Ashes”, came in at 1500 pages or thereabouts, so it’s almost like getting three books in one.  Almost.

And finally, there are plans to bring out a manga version of Jamie and Claire’s story (via Dear Author).  LOL.  Never in a million years would I have thought this would happen.  Actually, while I’ve a pretty clear image of Jamie in my mind, I never really could picture Claire.  This will be interesting.  I can’t wait to see the first pictures of this.
