Apropos of nothing, I decided to check to see what author Diane Duane has been up to during the past few years. When I browsed to her web site, I learned that:
- She is actively working on The Door Into Starlight (the long-hoped-for fourth and final novel in her Tales of the Five series), and
- She has written one short story (The Levin-Gad) and a novel (The Landlady) set in the years after The Door Into Sunset and prior to The Door Into Starlight, and
- She plans to write three more of these interim stories in the next year or so, and
- I could buy and download .epub copies of these two stories, three new Young Wizard stories, and a collection of her short stories that I mostly haven't ever read, at exceptionally reasonable prices, this very evening.
New tales of Herewiss, and Sunspark, and Freelorn, and Eftgan, and Segnbora and Hasai... I've been waiting for more than 25 years for this, without all that much hope that it'd ever actually happen.
I'm very, very happy. I'm also hungry for a slab of sourdough bread which has soaked up a bunch of drippings from the big flitch of bacon roasting in the fireplace, and then been slathered with fried onions... and I have no idea where to find a bar in our universe that prepares it properly.
