Diana Wynne Jones, your books are so lovely

I read Dark Lord of Derkholm over the past couple of days, and it was a treat. In it, a whole world is set up as a tourist attraction by a money hungry, frankly evil, businessman. Each year when the tours come through, everyone has to play their part for the off-world tourists, resulting in many senseless deaths and destruction of the land. I loved the concept, and the story telling. Witty, adventurous, fun, interesting… The more of her work I read, the sadder I become that she is no longer with us to write new novels.
