In Memoriam : Avram Davidson

Today is 23 April 2013, the ninetieth anniversay of the birth of Avram Davidson (you may learn more about his life and writings, here, dear visitor). William Shakespeare, James Buchanan, and Stanford P. Dole, President of the Republic of Hawaii, had the same birthdate. It is also the UNESCO World Book & Copyright Day.

“ what could be hellish about a mere 400 acre islet whose climate is bland enough to breed wallabies ? ”

In early May will be published The Wailing of the Gaulish Dead by Avram Davidson, a previously unpublished Adventure in Unhistory, with a preface by Eileen Gunn (details here ).
