About this title

Synopsis:

Perfect for readers of the bestselling Outlander novels—and don’t miss The Outlandish Companion Volume Two!

#1 New York Times bestselling author Diana Gabaldon has captivated millions of readers with her critically acclaimed Outlander novels, the inspiration for the Starz original series. From the moment Claire Randall stepped through a standing stone circle and was thrown back in time to the year 1743—and into a world that threatens life, limb, loyalty, heart, soul, and everything else Claire has—readers have been hungry to know everything about this world and its inhabitants, particularly a Scottish soldier named Jamie Fraser.
 
In this beautifully illustrated compendium of all things Outlandish, Gabaldon covers the first four novels of the main series, including:
 
· full synopses of Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, and Drums of Autumn
· a complete listing of the characters (fictional and historical) in the first four novels in the series, as well as family trees and genealogical notes
· a comprehensive glossary and pronunciation guide to Gaelic terms and usage
· The Gabaldon Theory of Time Travel, explained
· frequently asked questions to the author and her (sometimes surprising) answers
· an annotated bibliography
· essays about medicine and magic in the eighteenth century, researching historical fiction, creating characters, and more
· professionally cast horoscopes for Jamie and Claire
· the making of the TV series: how we got there from here, and what happened next (including “My Brief Career as a TV Actor”)
· behind-the-scenes photos from the Outlander TV series set
 
For anyone who wants to spend more time with the Outlander characters and the world they inhabit, Diana Gabaldon here opens a door through the standing stones and offers a guided tour of what lies within.

Review:

For nine years, four books, and nearly 4,000 pages, Diana Gabaldon has entranced readers with her talent for historical authenticity, dramatic plot lines, and strong characters in the Outlander series. Her superb writing has earned a loyal audience, but after a million and a half words, even the most fervent of fans may have a difficult time trying to recall the exact details of the secondary characters, let alone the obscure ones. Thankfully, Gabaldon's The Outlandish Companion is here to help.

Part crib notes and part trivia guide, this essential handbook includes synopses of the first four novels, a character guide, notes on plot development and research, answers to frequently asked questions, and teasers for the upcoming novels--there're even horoscope charts of the central characters, a list of fan Web sites, and choice recipes for the truly devoted.

Readers looking for a fix of Gabaldon's humorous voice or insight into her writing processes and characters will certainly be more than satisfied, but those looking for the next installment of Jamie and Claire's adventures will have to wait for The Fiery Cross, the fifth book in this bestselling series, expected sometime in late 1999 to early 2000. --Nancy R.E. O'Brien
