Actually, I can think of few authors ***more*** appropriate to a Society audience. Those of us who have been around for a while can remember when Katerine Kurtz (in her persona of Bevan Fraser of Sterling) was --- among other things --- Steward of the Society. (Up until a few years ago that was the title for the position analogous to the current Seneschal.)
Not to mention the fun of spotting Society old-timers in some of the characters in the Camber novels. (Also, fun in things by Tom Deitz, Raymond Feist, Bob Asprin and a host of others. . .)
Alisoun whose book budget would be lower if it were not for the urge to support SCA-related authors. . .
