- I have not posted here before, but I have been in fandom before a long phase of gafia, and have read many books during my active times. I was a SMOF in the past, but not a super-Smof, and had my favorite authors. Harlan Ellison was like a ghod to me, and the lesser lights were those around me and some not what others may expect.
