Please join family & friends old and young to celebrate the Life and Gifts of Rick Cook

Remembered by Wizards & Wiz fiction readers everywhere, Rick Cook imbedded his knowledge of early computer programming into his fantasy & sci-fi books, stories, articles, and witty puns & jokes.

Forever honored as a Founder of Atenveldt, Sir Richard Ironsteed co-created a new kingdom in the Society for Creative Anachronism, won Crown tournament, and reigned as the first King of Atenveldt.
