The ninth book in the OUTLANDER series now has a title: GO TELL THE BEES THAT I AM GONE.

Talking to your bees is a very old Celtic custom (known in other parts of Europe, too) that made it to the Appalachians. You always tell the bees when someone is born, dies, comes or goes—because if you don’t keep them informed, they’ll fly away.

I am working on this book now, and I am d

If you are sick of this series..move along.. We, who LOVE this story cannot WAIT to see the next new Books!!! (I DO hope this one comes out soon!

Although, my younger SIL promised me that if I die before this story ends, she will read them to me at my grave!!! PS. I'm in good health right now, so Im just being dramatic! ;-)(less)

That being said, I am a pretty fast reader and it still takes me about a month of doing NOTHING but reading to finish one of these behemoths. If you have work or a life, it takes MONTHS to finish one book. (This seems bad since I just looked on Audible and they are listed 30-60 hours to listen to. I wouldn't though. Too many details.) And of course, you end up taking breaks. So, if you wanted to, you could probably start now and finish right around the time the last book comes out, depending on your time commitment and your reading speed.(less)

These books are fantastic. They are historical. No, well, not *all* history. Science fiction. No, wait! Romance. Okay...adventure! Wait, wait...they're time-travel, or tear-jerkers, humor, and a little paranormal with a family saga thrown in. Oh, and only good for women. Well, and men, too. And people. Can't forget people.

See?! These books are ALL THE THINGS.

Go read the first Outlander and catch up with the rest. You have time. Then come back here to comment and agree whole-heartedly. You're wel

Question . . how does this book have a 3.67 rating, when Diana's just started working on it? I could understand 5s, because we're all excited, but 3.67? Is somebody hating just to be hating?

I really need to find a set of standing stones that will send me forward into the future when "Bees" is already published so I can read it!!! Having adored every single one of her books I have no doubt that this one will earn 5 🌟 as well.... don't need to be a time Traveller for that. 🐝 🐝 🐝

HABEMUS TÍTULO

"Go Tell The Bees That I Am Gone"

It is a very old Celtic custom (known in other parts of Europe, too) that made it to the Appalachians. You always tell the bees when someone is born, dies, comes or goes---because if you don't keep them informed, they'll fly away.
Diana Gabaldon -Will just note that "gone" doesn't necessarily mean _dead_, you know. There's a war on, you know; men march away and all that...

I don't usually post things like this─heck, I don't usually go on Facebook!─but.....

Spotted today on Facebook (link):
Reader: Diana is it true that book nine is the last one?
Diana Gabaldon: I don't think so.
Hooray!

You have to read the preceding books in the Outlander series to know the relationships, history and background of these historical time slip novels. Each volume is addicting and difficult to put down. The author creates a universe and populates it with dangerous, two-faced, murderous people who want something from Claire and Jamie or want what they have... land, home, wealth, power, education, special skills and most of all, unwavering love for each other. Their love encircles an extended family ...more
