The Outlandish Companion: Companion to Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, and Drums of Autumn
Genuine, down to earth, and punctuated with perfect moments of sarcasm, The Outlandish Companion gives a fantastic look at the world Diana Gabaldon has so meticulously crafted. Broken into distinct sections, this book covers everything about the series from the writing process and finding an agent to character family trees and behind the scene of the Starz Outlander series. The first 100-page section of this nearly 600-page book is dedicated to synopses of Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, and Drums of Autumn, and is a great refresher for fans. You then get a close look at the creation of characters, the research process, and other tidbits about the books themselves before transitioning to the on screen series.
Filled with detailed illustrations, maps, and charts, this book truly answered any and all questions someone could think up about the Outlander books. Though it was chock-full of names, dates, and relations, it was entertaining, reading almost conversationally in many places. Gabaldon’s insight will interest long time fans of the series, as well as prospective writers and all those with their T.V. turned to Starz every Saturday night at nine.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
