From the author’s Introduction:
So many ways I could have gone with the title:
50 F-ing Years
50 Years of F
50 Years of F-ing Around
Fortunately, wiser heads prevailed.
Fifty years . . . 1971 to 2021 . . . half a century since my first story saw print.
Sixty-plus books, fifty-plus short stories, novelettes and novellas.
Can’t believe I’ve had that many ideas.
Can’t believe I’ve typed all those millions and millions of words (with two fingers, no less).
Can’t believe I’ve fooled you all for so long.
Because, really, I’m not a writer. Don’t look to me for luminous or evocative prose. Don’t expect enlightenment or insights into the mysteries of existence, the intricacies of the human condition.
I’m just a storyteller. I make up stuff I think is cool—stuff I’d like to read—and I put it down on paper. I’m not sure why I’ve written so much, or why I keep on writing. It’s become some kind of obsessive-compulsive disorder. I am not writing for myself or out of a need for self-expression or a quest for immortality (as Woody Allen said, I’d prefer to achieve immortality through not dying). I am writing because I don’t seem to have a choice. I am writing to entertain, which means I am writing for you, and if you are not entertained, if you are not turning those pages, then I am not doing my job.
