    Such an awesome little story, and now in the most convenient form for emailing to friends and coworkers!

    That was the first story I had published in F&SF (or anywhere) and Gordon almost didn’t buy it because he thought it didn’t have enough emotional kick: but instead he sent it back to me and asked me to write the poem for the last footnote, which was exactly what it needed though I was too inexperienced at the time to see it. So Gordon deserves a lot of the credit for making it work.
