|Fantasy writer Mercedes Lackey called him "funny
enough to make people fall down on the ground and gasp for breath at first
hearing." (Cripes, she DOES make me sound like a disease, doesn't
she?) NASA used his voice to wake up space-shuttle astronauts -- twice.
Bill Roper described him as "much more fun than Jerry Pournelle."
Since his first filksing in 1979, Frank has forgotten more songs than most
filkers will ever know. He's also written a few that some people think are
unforgettable, including "Never
Set the Cat on Fire," "The Grandfather Clock" and "S-100."
And he's won Pegasus Awards for "When
I Was A Boy" (1998), "Like
A Lamb To The Slaughter" (1994) and "Twelve
Years at Worldcon" (before you were born) (just
look at the top of the page for the proof. Ed.). He writes
for the trade newspaper Computerworld
and lives in Portland, Oregon, in direct line of sight of an active volcano.
