Lloyd Alexander, R.I.P.

JunkYardBlog points to an obituary of Lloyd Alexander, who died on the 17th. He outlived both his wife and his adopted daughter.

I came across his books fairly late, but I’m glad that I read the Prydain Chronicles before seeing the Disney movie – I really didn’t care for it, and that would probably have turned me off looking for them.

I have two copies of the Prydain Chronicles (one hardback omnibus edition, and one set of paperbacks). The omnibus edition is currently lent out to a co-worker’s son. I also have a copy of Time Cat. I had no idea he had written as many books as he had.
