Goodbye, Lloyd Alexander

05.18.07 | Comment?

Well bummer. Apparently yesterday author Lloyd Alexander succumbed to cancer, shortly after his wife passed away on May 2. I guess after his wife was gone, he didn’t feel like he had much worth living for. If you’ve never read Lloyd Alexander, you owe it to yourself to do so. He wrote a classic juvenile fantasy series about how an assistant pig-keeper becomes a hero. I’d say as a kid that series affected me every bit as much as Lord of the Rings. Rest in peace, Mr. Alexander. You’re finally reunited with your heroes in the land over the horizon.
