Perfect readers of the bestselling Outlander novels--and don't miss the revised and updated first volume of The Outlandish Companion!
More than a decade ago, #1 New York Times
bestselling author Diana Gabaldon delighted her legions of fans with The Outlandish Companion
, an indispensable guide to all the Outlander books at the time. But that edition was just a taste of things to come. Since that publication, there have been four more Outlander novels, a side series, assorted novellas, and one smash-hit Starz original television series. Now Gabaldon serves up The Outlandish Companion, Volume Two,
an all-new guide to the latest books in the series.
Written with Gabaldon's signature wit and intelligence, this compendium is bursting with generous commentary and juicy insider details, including
- a complete chronology of the series thus far
- full synopses of The Fiery Cross, A Breath of Snow and Ashes, An Echo in the Bone,
and Written in My Own Heart's Blood
- recaps of the Lord John Grey novels: Lord John and the Private Matter, Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade, Lord John and the Hand of Devils,
and The Scottish Prisoner
- a who's who of the cast of Outlander characters, cross-referenced by book
- detailed maps and floor plans
- a bibliographic guide to research sources
- essays on subjects as wide ranging as Outlandish controversies regarding sex and violence, the unique responsibilities of a writer of historical fiction, and Gabaldon's writing process
- a guided tour of the clothes, food, and music of the eighteenth century
- a Scottish glossary and pronunciation guide
- personal photos from the author taken on the set of the Starz Outlander
As entertaining, sweeping, and addictive as the series itself, this second volume of The Outlandish Companion
is a one (or two)-of-a-kind gift from an incomparable author.
