Poul Anderson (1926--2001) was an American writer of SpeculativeFiction, who was also involved in the founding of the Society for Creative Anachronism. Apart from Creator/JRRTolkien, probably the writer most involved in [[ShownTheirWork doing the research]] when it came to fantasy. A major source for DungeonsAndDragons.
