Paul Edwin was quite the character. He never worked (except on his writing), always wore a kilt though he was not Scottish, and chain-smoked. He didn't wash too often, either. Paul Edwin did have some accomplishments, though, besides the writing, which was published but not a big success. He knew all about swords and medieval and Renaissance combat and martial arts. He was one of the founding members of the "Society for Creative Anachronism," a medievaloid fantasy role-playing group which has eaten the brains and lives of many of my friends over the years.
