The uber popular book Outlander, by Diana Gabaldon is due out this week translated into new mini series by the Starz network. Although Outlander had been mentioned to me in passing at the San Francisco Artisan Fragrance Salon by Sarah Horowitz, the novel didn’t get firmly planted into my consciousness until mentioned to me by Beth Schreibman Gehring. Madame Gehring and I share a passion for scent, herbs cooking and things more pagan in nature. If you are a old time reader of this journal you may recall the Perfume Illuminated posts that we collaborated on which has gone out to influence many regular series on other perfume blogs.
Outlander is one eight books that was first released in 1991 as a historical fiction love story that steps into the realm of sci-fi fantasy. I started listening to the book on tape, thanks to Audible, on our drive down to the San Diego Comic Con. Since then I’ve become obsessed listening whenever I get a chance. Five of the cast members and the author Diana Gabaldon were part of a panel at Comic Con. Here’s the trailer for the series along with the presentation.
