Of course RLS is the author of Treasure Island, Black Arrow and many other wonderful books. His works were a part of my earliest adventuring inspirations.
As I mentioned before Pirate movies and period books were a huge inspiration to me and while I have never found my "Pyrate D&D" (I own almost everything on the topic) I do keep looking.
