Lloyd Alexander died today. People know him best for his Chronicles of Prydain. They fueled my imagination when I was a child, and I did love them. But where he really captured my interest was with the Vesper Holly series. I like to have a character with whom I strongly identify in a book, and Vesper Holly was that character. Vesper Holly, Teen Archaeologist. I don’t remember much about the series except that I loved it and I read it while my parents were at the gym. I think I shall have to get it from the library in memoriam. The internet has shockingly little information about the series. It doesn’t have its own Wikipedia entry. It’s just briefly mentioned in the entry for Lloyd Alexander. We may have to set about fixing that. Who’s with me?
