    I just read the story Mr. Sackett mentioned, “Hail to the Chief”, in Asimov’s collection. I was just trying to find information about him because the intro to the story mentions they don’t know anything about him. A joke between friends, I’m sure. :^)

    Anyway, please pass on my regards to Sam. I enjoyed the story.

      Message from Sam: “My gratitude to Aaron Marks for reading “Hail to the Chief.” I’m glad he liked it, and I hope he goes on to read more of my work. But Asimov’s comment that he knew nothing about me wasn’t “a joke between friends”; it was quite true. After the book appeared, I wrote Asimov a two-page account of my life. He wrote back that he thought I had had a more interesting life than his, but that he was the one who had written his autobiography.”
