I was unaware that Poul Anderson was a SCAdian, but I too loved his writing.
It is that a great light has passed out of this world. All our pryers and love
to his family and know that we will remember him as only bards can...let him
be remembered  by wordfame. Let him be praised in story and song. Vivat!(image)

>Now, my words. He was a wonderful author, and many of his novels I read in

>chivalry, and striving to be exceptional without losing one's humanity. It
>was only after I had been in the SCA a few years that I heard Poul was in it
