Yesterday it came to my attention, that the author Christopher Samuel Youd has died last Friday aged 89. The name will most likely not ring a bell with most, but rather one of the pseudonyms he wrote under… John Christopher. I imensely enjoyed his works in the 1980’s when I was a young lad. It started off with his Tripods series, but I liked “The Guardians”, “Empty World” and the Fireball triology even more. In a way, he also started me on the road that brought me here. For his works got me hooked on Sci Fi literature, which was the startpoint for the winding road that got me to historical wargaming.
Thank you for that Mr. Youd and rest in peace.
