Title: Diane Duane
Post by: Patti L. on September 15, 2007, 02:23:08 pm
First noticed her with 'The Door Into Fire', a distinctly adult fantasy. (many of the characters are bisexual)
Look eagerly for her 'Young Wizards' books in YA or teen, eventually in children's books.
Here's a quote from 'The Wizard's Dilemma':  'You put your head in the closet, take a sniff, and tell me that again.... assuming you make it out of there alive.'
And that's not even evoking any of the wizardry.
She's also done some Star Trek novels.

And the cat wizards, 'On Her Majestys Wizardly Service' I think and another.....really love those.

That's rather an understatement. ;)  They're a bit hard to find (though there was a recent omnibus of the first two called The Sword and the Dragon), and the fourth book still hasn't been written yet.

The Book of Night with Moon (the first of the cat wizard series) is one of my all time favorite novels.  And the third book in the series is currently (very slowly) being serialized online:

Greetings, Konrad.  The Big Meow was slowed down by her ill-health & the terminal illness of her mother in law.
The other lot, it's one of those things where, since it's called something like 'the book of the five', we expect 5 volumes, but there may not be that many.  I certainly hope so, I've been collecting them so long I've got one of the original volumes with David Gerrold's introduction & the fake out-takes involving the chicken in the dungeon.

Jazzlet, did you catch their cameo in 'Wizard's Holiday'?  It cracked me up.

Post by: Jazzlet on September 18, 2007, 02:48:35 am
The Young Wizard books are on my 'to buy' list Patti or a move to an area with a library that isn't so rigid in it's building. The Sheffield Central library has a completely separate childrens section, different entrance, staff etc and where they stock a book is important, as you have to pay for library transfers. Now I could use my adult ticket in there, but that means I have to remember to go there and as I am always returning  'adult' books I always start in the adult lending section, then get immersed in selecting new books there and either uses up my allotment or run out of time. I am lucky that they chose to file the cat wizards in the adult crime section or I'd not have come accross them.

But I don't really mind, it is nice to know that there are books I want to read waiting out there. And I am lucky to have a library that stocks as much good science fiction and fantasy as Sheffield does, it's where I discovered Patty along with many other real gems.

Good-oh.  Also, check out her Star Trek novels.  The last 2 in the 'Sword' series (I can't remember how they spelled the Romulan way of saying Romulan, so I'm not even going to try) aren't much good, in my opinion, I suspect they were written to pay bills/fulfill a bad contract, but the first 2 in that series were interesting for a couple of reasons.  1= there's a cross-series (of her books) reference, &,
2= remember the Horta?  One of her 10,000 children is serving on the Enterprise! ;D
I also like the crystal spider architect. :D

Glad I'm not the only one waiting for the fourth 'door' book, I take the first three out and read them occasionally. I've also read the first 8 or so young wizards books, and the linked books with the cats (which I have now donated to my niece's school library).
Title: Re: Diane Duane
Post by: Suzi on June 10, 2008, 10:34:04 am
I knew I'd seen it somewhere, I've just been having a re-read and at the end of the Corgi paperback edition of The Door Into Sunset it says:-

"Here ends The Door Into Sunset. The fourth volume of this sequence, which tells the end of The Tale of the Five, will be called The Door Into Starlight."

I just wish she'd get on with it, because 16 years is a bit long to be waiting for a book!

Yes, it is, but there can be a multitude of reasons, including not being able to sell it to a publisher.
Simon(I think) Green hasn't finished the Wansor books he started in the 60s or 70s.

Simon(I think) Green hasn't finished the Wansor books he started in the 60s or 70s.

Hm, perhaps she had only the intention of writing the fourht book after finishing Door into sunset and couldn't get started... I surely hope she does, even though her website does not give an inkling to that. Perhaps she lost interest in the series, sad as it would be.

Hasai was one of my favourites too. Very cute dragon.  :D
Title: Re: Diane Duane
Post by: Patti L. on August 26, 2008, 10:20:59 am
Yes, he's a neat person.
Another possible reason, mentioned regarding someone else with a long gap from another series, is that the author may feel they've changed too much to write a true sequel.  It's literally written by a different person after 16, 20 years.

Off-topic, but mentioned upthread, forgive but it's Roland Green. Information here:

and I have never quite forgiven the abandonment of Wansor. Grrrrrrrrr  >:( >:( >:(

You may not know he also wrote 28 books in the Richard Blade series published as Jeffrey Lord. SF/F-ish action/adventure.

We need to start a thread for him, so we don't go off topic.

Ms. Duane has been working on "The Big Meow" for quite some time, the cat wizards again.  Lots of stuff going on in her personal life has kept her from completing it with any speed.

Oh, we don't need to delete, but we may copy.  It gives people the chance to explore another author.
What I'm going to do is start the thread & send a PM to the 3 area mods so one of them can add it to the master lists, both A-Z & G-M or whatever the correct breakdown is.

I should look at Ms. Duane's website again, to see what progress she's making on TBM.

Post by: wizardbear on April 01, 2011, 04:09:16 am
Loved the Cat Wizards and the Young Wizards, liked the Star Trek books I've read (Haven't read them all), totally mad that the "Door Into Fire" series hasn't been finished yet (gee, it's only been almost 20 YEARS now since the last book!), skipped most, almost all of her various SF books. Would really, really like to beat her with a clue-stick until she writes more "Door Into Fire" , that was her first book, I've been with her ever since and I hate it when a writer abandons a favorite series. I know that some times there are good reasons for it, but it doesn't make my inner "book addict" quit whimpering ...

I do have (somewhere!) the 5 Flashing Swords short story books, one of which, Flashing Swords! 5: Demons and Daggers, contains a short story by Diane Duane set in the "Door Into Fire" universe. If you've never seen that one, the whole Flashing Swords series is worth having, there's lots of good stuff in there. More information here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flashing_Swords!

They are hard to find, but very much worth finding. Amazon has a few, but only a few. For those of you who PaperBackSwap, as of April Fool's Day, 2011 there are a few there too. (and I swear, word of honor, this is NOT an April Fool's Joke, I wouldn't do that to you, Hurogs!). If you read any of the following authors and series, you'll find something good:

"In all, twenty-three stories were published in the series, all of them for the first time. These included two "Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser" stories by Fritz Leiber (in #1 and #3), two "Dying Earth" stories by Jack Vance (in vols. 1 and 4), the first two parts of the novel The Merman's Children by Poul Anderson (also in 1 and 4), two "Amalric the Mangod" stories by Lin Carter (in 1 and 3), a "Pusad" tale and the first part of the novel The Incorporated Knight by L. Sprague de Camp (in 2 and 3, respectively), two "Elric of Melniboné" stories by Michael Moorcock (in 2 and 4), two "Witch World" stories by Andre Norton (in 2 and 3), two "Brak the Barbarian" stories by John Jakes (in 2 and 4), one story by Avram Davidson (in vol. 3), a "Deryni" story by Katherine Kurtz (in 4), a "Dilvish" story by Roger Zelazny (in 5), a story by C. J. Cherryh (in 5), a story by Diane Duane (in 5), an "Ebenezum" story by Craig Shaw Gardner (in 5), and a story by Tanith Lee (in 5).

The series
Flashing Swords! #1 (1973)
Flashing Swords! #2 (1973)
Flashing Swords! #3: Warriors and Wizards(1976)
Flashing Swords! #4: Barbarians and Black Magicians(1977)
Flashing Swords! #5: Demons and Daggers (1981)"


(Information above came from here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flashing_Swords!)

Title: Re: Diane Duane
Post by: Patti L. on April 01, 2011, 07:02:39 am
Yes, I remember that story, pretty sure I have a copy of that volume.  A wielder of the Blue Fire, thought she'd settled basically into retirement, until the Goddess appeared in a dream & set her on a quest with a kitten and a liar... the introduction to the story indicates that there were supposed to be several, as it was "a tale of " whazzername.
Title: Re: Diane Duane
Post by: wizardbear on April 01, 2011, 07:25:26 am
Yes, that's the tale. Or considering the kitteh, is it, that's the tail? LOL

I think that there no plans to stop the series, until Lin Carter's declining health basically stopped everything he was doing.

"The Flashing Swords! series provides a cross-section of the heroic fantasy of the period. Carter and SAGA also sponsored The Gandalf Award from 1974-1981. With the collapse of Carter’s health in the 1980s the anthology series, the Gandalf award, and likely SAGA itself all went into abeyance."

So there may well have been other Diane Duane stories planned, until it all came tumbling down. We may never know. Too bad, I liked Lin Carter's stuff, both what he wrote himself and the works where he served as editor.

An unexpected financial shortfall has left us in danger of losing our home. Would you consider buying a sale-priced #ebook to help us out? http://dianeduane.com/outofambit/a-difficult-appeal/ …

I just went there and it looks like they're in the clear now, but are keeping the sale prices for anyone interested.

Thank you for the update.   I did buy some of the things I didn't have before, so they got a little of that from me.
I retweet her a lot.

Just finished "The Big Meow" on my way home today.
The end line was funny.
The editing needed some help, there were gender mix-ups, one character whose name kept changing, and a couple of sentence fragments copied into the wrong spots.
But it was a good story.

She is probably the next one I do an Amazon spree on. Not anytime soon though. Got to rebalance the budget. Do you want me to loan you Aunt Maria? I finished it the other night.

Oh, I can get it from library, I just wasn't liking the way it opened.
Also, when I looked her up the other day to find the title "Power of Three", there were some listings I didn't recognize.  At some point I'll need to research further to find out if they were UK titles of things I've read under USA titles.

Also, I might suggest buying direct so they (Diane Duane and Peter Morwood) get more of the profits...

One of these days I will hunt down some of her older works that I haven't been able to locate in the local secondhand stores.

You do use kindle or other e-reader, right? You could buy them off her website.

Having just read Neil Gaiman's Norse Mythology, I felt for once that I actually knew what was going on here.

I couldn't read more than the titles on the original tributes, but of course I always assumed they were a couple, from the first time I read SYWTBAW. And I kind of liked it that she just left it to the reader to do the math. Because a lot of times, that's what it's like IRL. And maybe people who read the series didn't realize it at first, and then gradually, once they already knew and loved the characters, figured it out. And for those who didn't, this is their Dumbledore moment of reckoning.

 :D I have been reading Elizabeth Moon's Paladin's Legacy series, and just finished the one where the dragon appears. There's no sword big enough for that one.
