Forget It!


August 1977


By this time, I was heavily into computers, and was publishing some non-fiction in the new hobbyist magazines. When I got a call from Erik Sandberg-Diment explaining that he was starting up a new computer magazine called ROM and he wanted a science fiction story from me, I was seriously enthused. An editor calling me, wow! I got the call on a Friday and had the finished manuscript in the mail Saturday. What is more amazing is that this has been one of my more popular short stories.
