Four extraordinary stories featuring characters from the bestselling Outlander series.

In Lord John and the Plague of Zombies, Lord John Grey is posted to Jamaica to assist the Governor as he faces a most unusual kind of uprising among the colony's slave population.

In The Space Between, Jamie Fraser's step-daughter, Joan, is on her way to an abbey in Paris to become a nun - but when she meets the Comte St Germain, a wealthy French aristocrat rumoured to deal in the occult - she discovers her destiny lies on quite a different path.

In The Custom of the Army, Lord John Grey is summoned as a witness in a court martial in the wilds of Acadia, only to find himself playing a crucial role in the Battle of Quebec.

In A Leaf on The Wind of All Hallows, a WW2 Spitfire pilot called Jerry MacKenzie crashes near a stone circle and wakes up in the eighteenth century. Can the strange man he meets - who impossibly seems to know him - help him return to his wife and baby son before a terrible fate overtakes them?

      Diana Gabaldon

      Diana Gabaldon is the author of the award-winning, #1 NYT-bestselling Outlander novels, described by Salon magazine as "the smartest historical sci-fi adventure-romance story ever written by a science Ph.D. with a background in scripting "Scrooge McDuck" comics."

      The adventure began in 1991 with the classic Outlander (published as Cross Stitch in the UK) ("historical fiction with a Moebius twist"), has continued through five more New York Times-bestselling novels--Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, Drums of Autumn, The Fiery Cross, and A Breath of Snow and Ashes—and presently has some seventeen million copies sold worldwide. An Echo in the Bone, to be released in September of 2009, is the seventh—but NOT the last!--novel in the series.

      The series, published in 24 countries and 21 languages, includes a nonfiction (well, relatively) companion volume, The Outlandish Companion, which provides details on the settings, background, characters, research, and writing of the novels. Gabaldon (it's pronounced "GAH-bull-dohn"—rhymes with "stone") has also written several books in a sub-series featuring Lord John Grey (a major minor character from the main series): Lord John and the Private Matter, Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade, and Lord John and the the Hand of the Devils).

      Returning to her comic-book roots, she has also written a graphic novel titled The Exile (set within the Outlander universe and featuring the main characters from Outlander), illustrated by Hoang Nguyen, to be published by Ballantine in Fall of 2010.

      Gabaldon is presently working on the third Lord John novel (Lord John and the Scottish Prisoner), and thinking vague thoughts about the eighth book in the Outlander series. In addition, she is working on a contemporary mystery series, set in Phoenix, and has written Highly Scholarly Introductions (with masses of footnotes) to recent Modern Library editions of Sir Walter Scott's Ivanoe and Thomas Paine's Common Sense.

      Dr. Gabaldon holds three degrees in science: Zoology, Marine Biology, and Quantitative Behavioral Ecology, (plus an honorary degree as Doctor of Humane Letters, which entitles her to be "Diana Gabaldon, Ph.D., DHL." She supposes this is better than "Diana Gabaldon, Fed.X") and spent a dozen years as a university professor with an expertise in scientific computation before beginning to write fiction. She has written scientific articles and textbooks, worked as a contributing editor on the MacMillan Encyclopedia of Computers, founded the scientific-computation journal Science Software Quarterly, and has written numerous comic-book scripts for Walt Disney. None of this has anything whatever to do with her novels, but there it is.

      She and her husband, Douglas Watkins, have three adult children and live mostly in Scottsdale, Arizona.
