Are you a fan of time travel books, TV and movies? If you are and you have not checked out the series of books written by Diana Gabaldon, you are missing out on a great adventure you can take sitting right in your own living room.
To top it off, Ms. Gabaldon has agreed to allow her books to be made into a TV series by Ronald D. Moore of “Battlestar Galactica” fame. The series will be presented on the STARZ channel in the USA on August 9, 2014 at 9 pm EST. The first book alone is scheduled for 16 episodes and the fans could not be happier and more excited about this event taking place.
Diana Gabaldon started writing her Outlander series in 1991 and fans have waited all of this time for each new book to come out and also were full of high hopes of a movie or TV series which has finally been done.
There are eight books in the Outlander series; Outlander, Dragonfly In Amber, Voyager, Drums Of Autumn, The Fiery Cross, A Breath Of Snow And Ashes, An Echo In The Bone and her last realease, Written In My Own Heart’s Blood.
I’m looking forward to the debut of the TV series, along with reading the books.

I wrote this piece above in 2014 before the TV series began. It is now 2017 and I’m just now being able to watch the series all the way through; at least up to the Season #3 which is set to be released this month (September 2017).
The series is definitely one that will keep you in suspense but I also want to make you aware of the fact that there is foul language, partial nudity and sexual scenes. Because of this, it should not be considered family entertainment.
At the risk of telling too much of the captivating and ongoing story, I won’t go into details of it, except that I am enjoying the series very much.
Diana’s books are, in my opinion “Considered Classics” and there is so many more books from this great author.
Outlander is a series that is available on Starz Entertainment LLC (non Aff.) Contact your local cable company to get Starz.
