Diana Wynne Jones, author of Howl's Moving Castle, passes away

Howl's Moving Castle

This is pretty unfortuante, I really enjoyed her writing. In case some of you didn't know, the Ghibli anime Howl's Moving Castle was based on a British writer. I highly recommend reading the book if you enjoyed the anime, since it makes more sense and is just overall a lot better than the movie (Don't get me wrong, I love the movie too).

Howl's Moving Castle was also followed by two indirect sequels that take place in the world. Castle in the Air and House of Many Ways. I highly recommend that people check them out. You can probably find them at your local library.

Edit: Shadowneko has set up a forum thread about the matter
