Some critics complained because JDM "updated" some of these stories. I found the modifications to be minor. These are great stories!

BV Lawson

I can understand why he thought he should do it ("takes people out of the story"), but personally I don't mind at all. Of course, several decades later, they read as "historicals" anyway. :-)

600 magazine appearances, I'd gather...and less than a hundred gathered in those collections. Hmmm...

BV Lawson

He said that he wasn't always 100% happy with his stories and novels; sometimes it was 20%, sometimes it was 80%. But when Martin Greenberg approached him for a collection (which turned into two), he thought he could find enough material. I wish I could be as prolific as John D, for sure.
