May 21, 2007: RIP Lloyd Alexander

Lloyd Alexander, author of the Chronicles of Prydain, died last week.

I encounted Prydain in my high school library, reading The Black Cauldron first. Yes, that's out of order, and ever since I've been extremely careful to research series before starting.

My misadventures aside, the adventures of Taran, Assistant Pig-Keeper, have stuck in my head. I guess it's time to track down those books again, and give them a re-read.

Kind of like raising a glass in salute, but more fitting for an author.
