A new title for SCOTTISH PRISONER!

Diana Gabaldon confirmed on Compuserve today that the title of the upcoming Lord John-Jamie book (formerly known as LORD JOHN AND THE SCOTTISH PRISONER) has changed to:

THE SCOTTISH PRISONER (A Lord John Novel)

As Diana said in answer to my question,
We decided that was better, as the book is half Jamie's.

I like the title better this way, I think.  It might draw in more OUTLANDER fans who haven't read the Lord John books, and it definitely underscores the fact that (as Diana often says) the Lord John books are actually an integral part of the overall series, even though they are marketed separately.  It's all one immense story, and everything interconnects.

Please pass the word to any other fans you know who are looking forward to this book.

Brilliant, yet subtle change, or should that be subtle, yet brilliant, change?!

I can't say I care what it's called; I just want to read it already!
