Via Ansible (

"Diana Wynne Jones, after much consultation with her husband and specialists, has decided to abandon chemotherapy (which is serving only to make her feel very ill indeed) and resign herself to whatever may follow. Her senior oncologist fears she has 'months rather than years', but we all hope that – as once or twice before – Diana can still surprise the medical profession. May the good luck return. [via CB]"

And per her official fan site:

As a huge fan of her wonderful Chrestomanci books, I am deeply concerned, and Angry At Fate.

I will be over here sulking.

Chrestomanci books, Howl's Moving Castle, and much more.

This saddens me.  :(  I love you, DWJ.
