I was sad to read this week that Clive King, the author of Stig of the Dump, has passed away. RIP Clive.
Of course, I always knew there were more than one Stig out there.
In fact it is a fairly common Scandinavian given name derived from a word meaning 'wanderer'. So if you ever wondered why my main character was named Stig now you know.
Did you know there at least two more "Stig of the Dump" named people?
