Number one New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon has captivated millions of listeners 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 – listeners 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 18th 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.
