Scope and Content

Fragments of various unpublished, unfinished manuscripts by Diana Wynne Jones. The file contains half a page of manuscript entitled 'Five Finger Exercise', about the aristocracy of Ruritania; six pages of another, untitled story also set in Ruritania; three pages of an untitled story about two old university friends meeting up again after many years; 12 pages of an untitled story about a fictional European country called Domitia; and 17 pages of a story entitled 'Hairsbreadth Magic'. The file also contains an unfinished manuscript draft of a poem. All of these pieces appear to have been abandoned by Jones without being finished.
