de Camp

And while we are on the subject of authors' centennials, L. Sprague de Camp was born 100 years ago today. His fans are celebrating over at the Cimmerian. I once had dinner with Sprague and his wife, Catherine, and carried on a brief correspondence with him on the subject of ancient and medieval technology. He was a gentleman and a scholar and an immensely engaging conversationalist. I remember him fondly.

The L. Sprague de Camp website is here.
