Re: SCAdian authors?
- Katherine Kurtz is, I believe, known as Countess Bevin of Frasier and
the last time I heard from one of my brother's friends in Wales, was
still known to come to events occasionally.

Stirling). She lives in Ireland. She has developed other interests, so
her activity in the SCA is minimal.

- Thanks to all of you who answered my question in your various ways, and particularly to Mary taran for her list.
As a life-long SciFi enthusiast, with collections of original copies of Amazing, Astounding, Analog, and Galaxy, to name but a few - locked away along with hundreds of Sci-Fi paperbacks, I now at-least-partly-understand why there were so many such stories during the 1960's 1970's, and 1980's with historical backgrounds - usually involving either time travel, alternative history, or regressing planetary societies.
Considering the backgrounds of his various "Philosophical Corps" stories, I would not be surprised to see Everett B. Cole added to the list of SCAdian authors, either.
And some of you actually got to meet these "legends"! Lucky you!
We do so envy you SCAdians your widespread and very friendly Society - just loaf your equipment into something like a Ford Aerostar, or a towed trailer; jump in and drive for anything up to 12 hours, and attend one of your events; - we are all totally overwhelmed by the sheer scale of your Pennsic War, for example - and would love to visit with some of you - if only it wasn't so damned expensive to "escape from this little rock"!
Thanks to all of you, I am now inspired to exhume my large sci-fi collection from store, and re-read such stories as "A Spaceship For the King", "Too Many Magicians", etc., etc"
May God's Benison be with you all, this Feast of St. Stanislaus and always.

- Historical mystery rather than sci-fi or fantasy: Mary Monica Pulver
and Gail Frazer collaborated on the first few volumes of the "Dame
Frevisse" medieval murder-mystery series under the pen name "Margaret
Frazer." Gail's now doing them alone, since Monica's gone off in
other directions (I think she's currently writing a modern series as
Monica Ferris). I keep forgetting what their SCA names were but I
know both were in the Society. (This was long before my time, I've
been told the names but they just don't stay in my memory.)
Seems that some SCA members who write successful series tend to do
less with the Society once they start doing medieval history
full-time for a living :) I suppose one would want to take up
something like scuba diving or bird watching, in order to have
something different to do for fun!

his books, he has several minor characters with
the same names as several Caidans. Although I
do not know him, I do know that he must have
been active for at least a while.
