Going back to this post, I can finally say that I’ve been redshirted. I didn’t make the announcement when it actually happened, because I still maintain anonymity (though Houblog has been defunct for a while now). So yes, somewhere, in a John Ringo book I’m not going to name, is my real world name, which I’m not going to tell you. So why should you care? No reason at all… 🙂
Edit: They’re called “Ringo’s Redshirts” for the alliteration. And what Ringo has to say about the “official” SF&F fan group, is best left unsaid. In polite company, that is.
