RIP Diana Wynne Jones

In non-Fringe news, most of you have probably heard by now, but Diana Wynne Jones has passed away. SO SAD ABOUT THIS. ;_______; I read Howl's Moving Castle several years ago, but I only discovered how awesome the rest of her books are last year. Which is a crying shame - I should have read these as a kid, I would have loved them. (Not that I don't love them just as much now, I just wish I'd gotten to experience them as a kid, too.)

Her books are magical and hilarious and they make the world seem a little roomier, and if you haven't read any of them you should go out and do so right away.

"What I don't understand is why when people say 'the real world' they always mean something depressing by it." - Diana Wynne Jones

It is extraordinarily depressing. That is a lovely quote though, and gives me something to think on.

I'm glad to have known her, even if it was only through her books.
