The Young Wizards series launches in France!

The French edition of So You Want to Be a Wizard is now available from Editions Lumen!

Nita laissa courir ses doigts sur l’e?tage?re de la bibliothe?que. Soudain, quelque chose arre?ta son mouvement. Le dos d’un des livres e?tait abi?me? – sa main s’e?tait accroche?e a? un fil. Elle plissa les yeux. Ah ! Un de ces guides consacre?s aux me?tiers : Le Guide du pilote en herbe, du chercheur en herbe, de l’e?crivain... Mais celui-la? s’intitulait... Le Guide du sorcier en herbe ! Nita extirpa le volume du rayonnage, e?bahie, et se plongea dans la lecture. Non, impossible ! se dit-elle au bout d’un instant. Elle referma le livre et le tint serre? dans sa main, immobile, en proie a? un me?lange d’incre?dulite?... et d’euphorie. Si c’e?tait une plaisanterie, elle e?tait ge?niale. Et si ce n’en e?tait pas une...

Vendue en tout a? plus de 3 millions d’exemplaires rien qu’aux E?tats-Unis, Wizards berc?ait avant Harry Potter les re?ves de magie des adolescents ame?ricains. Tre?s appre?cie?e outre-Atlantique, cette se?rie a e?te? prime?e de nombreuses fois.

Happy Birthday, Sherlock Holmes



Happy birthday, old friend.

Your creator was the first person I consciously took as a tutor in the art of structuring fiction. I didn't do it because I loved him. I did it because I loved you... and because the way he handled you made you more real than a lot of the (allegedly) real things in my world.

We're updating our site

You've arrived while we're in the process of giving the main DianeDuane.com site a makeover.

Over this month a lot of new features are going to be added to make it easier for our visitors to get around and find what they want...so do stop in every now and then to see how the construction's coming.

Please note that some pages that existed in the old website's structure may not be valid any more, as (in the case of outdated material) they've been removed, or (for newer/current material) they've been combined with other resources or relocated. We'll be putting a search box on the 404 page to help you find what you were looking for more easily.

Meantime, thanks for your interest, and welcome again!
