Gabaldon Rushes Outlander Series
Diana Gabaldon wrote Outlander as an exercise, which she never intended to publish, she tells the Arizona Republic. It turns out she didn't need the exercise. Her manuscripts are rarely edited by the publisher, going straight from disk to typsetting. Now she is rushing to deliver the sixth novel in the series, which features time-traveller Clare Randall. There is such a rush to get the book in stores that Gabaldon is given one week to go over the galleys.
