On the offchance anyone doesn't already know, Diana Wynne Jones died at the weekend, after a long battle with cancer. A national treasure, as Neil Gaiman rightly said*, who will be missed by many. (Obit. by Chris Priest; also one by Neil Gaiman, as pointed out by [personal profile] na_lon, and another, by Emma Bull.)

* I've speculated elsewhere that Mr G's own rise to fame can be tracked quite neatly by the changing attribution of that comment - originally just "Locus magazine", then "Neil Gaiman in Locus", and finally "Neil Gaiman" without mentioning the magazine.
