Praise for Gabaldon's Outlander Series:
"Gabaldon is an author who found a formula that takes myriad genres--historical fiction, adventure, fantasy, sci-fi, mystery and romance--and blends them into one (well, eight) hard-to-resist novels. . . . It's little wonder why for years producers have been salivating over the idea of translating Outlander to the big (or small) screen." —National Post
"History comes deliciously alive on the page." —New York Daily News
"Triumphant. . . . Her use of historical detail and a truly adult love story confirm Gabaldon as a superior writer." —Publishers Weekly --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The book includes:
A synopsis of the entire series through MY OWN HEART'S BLOOD.
Synopses of the novels in the series after THE FIERY CROSS (including the Lord John Grey novels which are a spin-off of the main series)
A guide to the characters in the series
An Essay on Sex and Violence -- this was my favorite essay of the bunch. Gabaldon really examines and puts forth her opinions responding to the criticism of her series with regards to the sexual violence depicted in them.
An Essay on History and Historical fiction including the justification of falsity in historical fiction
A guide to the Scottish language as used in the books including a pronunciation guide
An essay on writing
A section on the people who work on the Outlander television series
Some maps and floor plans
Bibliography of the books Gabaldon uses to underpin the writing of the Outlander books
Some photographs from the set of the television show
Outlander family tree
This book is for fans of the series, but also anyone who wants to know more about the process of creating these novels. I like the series but am not a hardcore fan and I enjoyed learning more about the series and reminding me of details to which I didn't pay attention. This is a book that you can dip into at your leisure to explore different issues. I especially liked the incorporation of the information about the television series and the contrast with the actual books in the series.
Even the writing about the synopsis of the books by Diana Gabaldon (aka Herself) is fun to read and gives great enjoyment. I go back to the original Companion frequently for information, I am sure this volume will also end up with numerous post-its as well.
Well worth having to complete your library of books related to the series called Outlander.
If you're a Diana Gabaldon fan, this is the perfect companion for the Outlander series. It's also the perfect time-filler as we wait for the return of the TV show and the next book in the series. This book would thrill any Outlander fan you know on Christmas morning, too.
If someone is a true fan of Diana Gabaldon's work, as I am, they will love this book as it gives a brief overview of each story (and their many individual storylines!) without giving away "the meat" of it. Well worth the investment to further my collection of all things written by Diana Gabaldon!
