1) SEVEN STONES TO STAND OR FALL
Diana Gabaldon's story collection, SEVEN STONES TO STAND OR FALL, will be published on June 27, 2017.
SEVEN STONES TO STAND OR FALL is a collection of seven novellas. Some of these stories have been previously published in anthologies or as standalone e-books, but two of the stories are brand new.
The collection will include:
"The Custom of the Army" (originally published in 2010)
"A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows" (originally published in 2010)
"A Plague of Zombies" (originally published in 2011)
"The Space Between" (originally published in 2012)
"Virgins" (originally published in 2013)
"A Fugitive Green" (new story about Hal and Minnie in 1744)
"Besieged" (new story about Lord John and his mother Benedicta)
For more details about all of these stories, see Diana's announcement here.
SEVEN STONES TO STAND OR FALL will be available in hardcover and e-book format. You can pre-order from Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
Diana Gabaldon is still writing Book 9 of the OUTLANDER series. It takes her 3-4 years to write one of the Big Books, so we likely won't see Book 9 in print until 2017 or 2018. Please try to be patient!
3) Master Raymond book
Diana intends to write a book about Master Raymond at some point. She's not focusing on it right now, but she does write bits of it now and then when an idea for a scene occurs to her. We probably will not see this book for a few years, though.
4) Brian and Ellen's story
Diana has said for a long time that she plans to tell the story of Jamie's parents eventually, but it probably won't happen until after the main series is done.
Stay tuned for further updates!
