    Comments about The Outlandish Companion:

    As Diana's books were written over such a long period of time, it was easy to forget details and this volume not only gives a synopsis of the first four volumes but reveals so much more about the characters and historical facts about the period. A fascinating and much needed compendium for The Outlander fans.
