Scotland’s sf & fantasy bookstore

Leo Frankowski

I’ve just learned that Leo Frankowski passed away on Christmas Day 3 months ago.

He was noted mainly for his Conrad Stargard (Cross Time Engineer) series about a man from 1986 Poland (iirc) who ends up back in time only a few years before the scheduled Mongol invasion… Good fun, as he struggles to develop weapons and armaments to protect himself (and the rest of the country)
His other books were also interesting – Copernick’s Rebellion and The Fata Morgana (about a mysterious floating island) especially…

Overall, a fairly minor writer within the sf&f field, but he did write fun books!
