I heard she was sick and had stopped chemotherapy. This is very sad news. Her books are very special to me.

This is the first I've heard that Howl's Moving Castle wasn't an original Miyazaki.

Came to post Gaiman's journal, but I've been beaten to the punch.

Still worth offering my own sadness. She was a fine writer.
