P.G. Bell I hope the mods don't mind me self-promoting for a moment, but I thought the group might like to know I recently chaired a spirited discussion on Diana Wynne Jones, her books and her life.

We assembled a group of life-long fantasy fans to discuss her place amongst the greats of children's literature (including the Harry Potter-shaped elephant in the room), try to decipher why she isn't a household name, and run through our favourite and least-favourite DWJ books. We also use 'Howl's Moving Castle' as a jumping-off point to explore the themes and techniques of her work in general.

Please do have a listen and feel free to leave feedback, either here or on the site. I'd love to hear what other DWJ fans make of our findings!

Zach Sparks (rykien) | 32 comments I just recently listened to this podcast and I just want to say that it was brilliant, I loved the energy that you guys had going throughout, and I found myself laughing more than I thought I would.
