l love Robin McKinley's writing but haven't thought of her as particularly like DWJ.

Peter Dickinson gets a decent obituary in Locus here:  http://www.locusmag.com/News/2015/12/peter-dickinson-1927-2015/ 

Splendid Solstice,

Amy in NYC – life long lover of all things SF & F

Sally, et al,

similarities such as--? I haven't read *Spindle's End* in a few years now,
and I liked it, but I can't recall anything particularly DWJ-ish.

And thank you, Charlotte, for the alert about Peter's passing--I hadn't
seen any notices. So sad for Robin.
