Serious News: Diana Wynne Jones

Cross-posted from the DWJ LJ Comm:

Diana Wynne Jones, after much consultation with her husband and specialists, has decided to abandon chemotherapy (which is serving only to make her feel very ill indeed) and resign herself to whatever may follow. Her senior oncologist fears she has 'months rather than years', but we all hope that – as once or twice before – Diana can still surprise the medical profession. May the good luck return.

- Ansible, June 2010

Thanks to james_nicoll for the Ansible cite ... I was kind of holding my breath until I saw it.

For those not familiar with Ansible: "Ansible is David Langford's infamous British SF/fan newsletter, published since 1979."

I have also read this same news via the DWJ mailing list, where it was actually posted a couple of weeks ago.

According to this blog, you can send letters to:

Diana Wynne Jones
c/o Greenwillow Books
10 E. 53rd St.
New York, NY 10022

The publisher says (again, see link) the company will forward them.
