February 23, 2021 With great sadness, we observe the passing of Jack last night at the age of 80. The world has lost a giant of character and literature and so much more. We are so fortunate that he leaves behind so much of himself in his novels and other writings. I’m sure he’s already donned his kilt and is watching all of us holding a glass of smoky scotch with a glint in his eye and a rye comment on his lips. – Mark Burgess

How I met Jack
Hello, and welcome to my website, whoever you may be—and there are two possibilities attached to that: You might be a brand new, drop-in visitor compelled by nothing more than curiosity, in which case I hope you’ll take the time to look around in here and do a bit of exploring. On the other hand, you might be a returning visitor or subscriber, and if that’s the case, I hope you’ll be excited and intrigued again by what’s happened here since you last visited the site.
We’ve been here since 1997, and that’s quite an astonishing length of time, because at the time of the site’s first incarnation, as camulod.com, very few people anywhere knew what a web site was, and the whole adventure of being on-line was a learning experience for everyone. Since then, though, we’ve undergone two complete upgrades and face lifts as the technology has improved and grown more sophisticated, and so I hope you will dig around in here, become a member/subscriber—it’s free and non-threatening—and add your own two cents’ worth in the Readers Forum whenever you feel inclined to contribute anything.
