I never knew about John M. Ford until he died.
I probably read his work in a Steve Jackson game or a Star Trek novel, but the name apparently didn’t stick with me. I definitely did not know about all of the other wonderful things he wrote. So, now, after reading all of this amazingly funny stuff, he leaves me not only with the sad fact that he won’t be writing any more, but also with the poke in the eye that I had spent 44 years of my life (give or take) without the benefit of his words bumbling around in my cranium.
