by HFPA August 9, 2014

Author Dana Gabaldon has stated that she initially wrote the first Outlander novel as and “experiment” to “try and teach herself how to write fiction and to see whether she wanted to make a living at it”. Well, after 12 years, 8 books and a musical adaptation, we think that question should has definitively been answered. The mix of sweeping historical narrative, romance science-fiction and fantasy adventure has seduced legions of fans and now comes to TV courtesy of the Stars series starring Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan.
