starlady: (the last enemy)
My daily Internet ramblings brought to my attention today that sff writer David Eddings '54 (1931-2009) left an $18 million bequest to his alma mater, Reed College. The money will be used to give financial aid to needy Reed students as well as to endow the David Eddings Professorship of English and to catalogue and maintain his and his wife Leigh's archives, which the College also received.

Reed and sff are both near and dear to my heart. I never got any farther in Eddings' books than the scene in which Garion's mentor or whatever explains that his odd accent in finger-speech is due to Garion having learned it in wintertime, or at least that's the only scene that I remember, but that's immaterial. Ave atque vale, and thank you.
