F. M. Busby (1921 - 2005)
Francis Marion Busby Jr and his wife Elinor lived in Seattle with their two cats: Jeoffrey, the young black and white panther, and veteran calico Molly Dodd, until his death on February 17, 2005 at age 83. He published eighteen novels, and of more than forty shorter works, three have appeared in Best of Year anthologies; twenty are gathered into his collection Getting Home. He attended and graduated from WSU, studying physics and electrical engineering, eventually moving to Seattle to engineer communications for the Alaska Comm System. When the ACS was sold in 1970, he opted for early retirement and began writing SF. His interests included aerospace, unusual gadgetry of most any kind, dogs, cats and people, not necessarily in that order.
