Born June, 1956 – Died March, 1993
Since I had my dad up here, I figured Scott deserved a page as well. (He’d have loved all this new technology!)
If you know nothing about him but you are interested because, hey, I’ve given him his own page on my site, then please check out this book, a biography written by two of his best friends. He was an amazing soul, an amazing (and often irritating) brother (as brothers often are), and his books continue to reach out and touch so many people.
He wrote many genre books – romances, westerns – to help pay the bills while he was writing his Llewellyn books. The genre books are long since out of print (though you can find some still on ABE Books); his Llewellyn books are still selling. This one is one of my favorites, below.
Whispers of the Moon was written by two of his close friends. I think I’ve got a quote in there.
Llewellyn received a box of Scott’s papers, years after he died, and in 2009 they put together Cunningham’s Book of Shadows. They kindly asked me if I’d like to say a few words about him, so I gathered my thoughts and did a brief essay.
Christopher Penczak put out a book called Ancestors of the Craft through Copper Cauldron Publishing. I’ve got an essay in there
about Scott. The two of them never met, but Scott would have appreciated Christopher.
Here are a couple photos of Scott and I …
I love this photo of us. We’re both blissed-out with our eyes closed (though it was probably that my dad liked to have us face the sun when he took our photos).
Here’s another one from the same series of shots.
We had been goofing off in the front yard and dad came out with his camera.
If you do know about him and his work, please feel free to leave a comment below. I know there’s a community of people who miss him, and thought this might be one way to celebrate his life and his work.
It’s funny. It’s been two decades plus since he died, and it still feels like all I have to do is think of him and he’ll give me a call.
As I find more photos of us, I’ll add them to this page. If YOU have a photo that you’d like to have added to this page, send it to me as a .jpg and I’ll be happy to add it.
