Cheers to DWJ

As reported in Dave Langford's Ansible newsletter, Diana Wynne Jones is to be given an honorary DLitt from Bristol University. She is reported as saying she doesn't know how this could have happened when "this sort of thing has to go through Solemn Committees full of serious men who do not know fantasy exists." Richly deserved, I say! This on top of the fact that the movie of Howl's Moving Castle has been nominated for an Oscar (best animated feature) - though considering it's up against Wallace and Gromit, Curse of the Wererabbit, I shall be in a quandary about whom to root for.

Of course DWJ's husband lectured at Bristol University for a very long time - so she knows whereof she speaketh wrt committees - but they also know of her.

Richly deserved indeed. A wonderful writer. (New book due in the autumn.)
