Alan Eddy

Alan Eddy, author of Hound and Muskrat:  I am a 60-year-old retired records manager originally educated as a horticulturist and librarian.  This story is from Letters and Diaries of Queen Chipsa – a work that I started in the year 1968.  A quick perusal of this opus will reveal that I am an amateur medievalist, amateur botanist, and would-be philanthropist.  It will also be obvious that I am a fan of Narnia, Middle-Earth, Earthsea, and Hogwarts.  The sequel to The Land of Nye is a longer and more meditative work called Polara’s Peace:  The letters and diaries of Queen Chipsa (still only rough notes at this point).  I can be reached via email sirpatrickofnye@gmail.com

The Land of Nye is a flat world held up by a giant oak tree. This is one of the creation myths common in that world.
