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. . .
