THANK YOU!! She is my favourite author, bar none. I'm always excited to hear about a new book.... the recent ones have been really good, too. I loved Merlin Conspiracy and Pinhoe Egg. The only downer is it's going to be a long wait until 2010!

Have you listened to the audiobooks?  They are really well done.  I loved Conrad's Fate.

Hey Michelle, I checked the DWJ official website and found this:

Due out this year, 2009, is a new Diana Wynne Jones novel Enchanted Glass. A stand-alone book, not part of any series, there are the expected magicians, but it also includes giant vegetables, revenge by cauliflower cheese (?!) and fortune-telling using racing tips. Something to look forward to, Enchanted Glass will be published by HarperCollins in the UK and Greenwillow in the US.

Maybe it's coming out in 2009 in the UK and 2010 here. Either way, to see 2009 was encouraging!
