Is the guy really called Poul Anderson? Who gives a kid such a name?
It's Danish, so I'm guessing lots of Scandinavian people do!

And Anderson was a legendary sf and fantasy writer who received multiple Hugo and Nebula Awards. He was named a Grand Master by the Science Fiction Writers of America way back in 1997.
Indeed, if he was born in Brazil it would of been Paulo Anderson.

He is one of the better "old school" SF writers as well...
