Diana's latest blog post

Diana Gabaldon's latest blog post has some interesting information on a couple of topics that have come up in recent days:
  1. Why exactly is Jamie's birthday on May 1?  Is there some special significance to the fact that he was born on Beltane?  (Judging from her reaction, by the way, the #HappyBdayJamie campaign was a resounding success! <g>)

  2. Why is the unabridged version of ABOSAA available on now, when the license for the abridged version doesn't expire for several more years?  ("We (me and my agent) did them a deal" is the way Diana put it.)
I would encourage you to go and take a look at what she says.  And if you live in Arizona, there's some information in that blog post about Diana's upcoming appearances for the month of May.

A co-worker handed me a tattered copy of Outlander (about a year after it came out) and said "This book is really wierd. Right up your alley." She was so right.

I had stopped in a bookstore to pick up something to read while I got my hair cut, etc. The clerk saw me staring at the stacks and asked if she could help me find something. She said that if I wanted to read a really, really good book, I should buy "Outlander" and that a second book had just come out in hardcover ("Dragonfly in Amber").

The rest is history.
