Poul Anderson died at home near midnight, Tuesday July 31, 2001. He had
come home that day to receive hospice care after kidney failure brought
on by prostate cancer.
His last day was spent with family and friends. He enjoyed his final
meals, and especially a Jubilaeum akvavit and Carlsberg beer.
He was pleased and warmed by the many e-mails he received from friends
and strangers around the world who had been touched by his writing.
Special thanks go to Diana Paxson, Geoff Kidd, and Gerry Nordley, who
helped greatly in his homecoming.
