Hold tight, folks!  I just got an email from Marc Thompson, Howard's
son.  He says that Howard is alive and well, but "unlikely to resurface."

He mentions that he appreciates the fact that I respect the copyright
held on the Metagaming items on the TFT website.  As Steve Jackson
said when I asked him about it a while back, "it's just good Karma."
I guess he was right!

Finally, he asks that I not distribute his email address, which I
will obviously honor.

Another mystery solved.  What a rush!

My God! The Real Life Metagaming THE FANTASY TRIP Puzzle solved. Did you win the $10,000 and get to keep the Platinum Myrmidon? This is a coupe, Joe!

So, the next question is...will TFT resurface as a published game?

If Howard Thompson does not want to publish it, will he give the game rights to his son so Marc can immediately republish it? If Marc does not want to publish it, is he thinking of selling it. Might he even keep the copyrights but allow fanatic amatuers TFTers like us the right to duplicate the materials as long as we don't make profit off it?

Does Marc play TFT?

What about WarpWars?

2000 experience points, 3 Honor Points, 2 Fate Points and my admiration to Joe the Astounding.
