My comment at Slate about the myth that John M. Ford's family tried to keep his work out of print

I left this at John M. Ford’s books are being republished, but how did he fall into obscurity?:
I was one of Mike Ford's friends and editors, and I want to go on record with this: Martha Fry was extremely helpful when we wanted to keep his Liavek stories in print. The breakdown in communication between his original family, his fannish family, and his agent has many reasons, but there are no villains in that story. There are only gossips who love drama, as there are in any community. If anyone claims his first family tried to make his work unavailable, I will point to the Liavek anthologies as evidence that's not true.
