Mary Stewart passed away on May 10th.  I've read a lot of Arthurian literature, both fiction and non-fiction, and her books remain my favorites.  sad

Aw, my hubby is just in the process of re-reading her Arthur books.  He keeps saying that he had forgotten just how well written they are.

Very sad, but what a wonderful literary legacy she leaves behind.  Her "Arthur" books are my favorites too.

Mary Stewart was one of my first authors when I moved from the upstairs "Children's Library" to the downstairs "Adult Books," along with Victoria Holt, Phyllis A. Whitney and Jane Aiken Hodge.

Great memories!
