    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.

    Usage notes

    This fanspeak word is used instead of the standard form to indicate a fannish context or an association with science fiction fandom. Science fiction fandom included mock deities, or "fannish ghods", such as Ghu and Foo (the "ghod of mimeography").
