Editor: Sadly, Jordin passed away on July 19, 2017. Our hearts, thoughts, and care go out to Jordin's family and loved ones in this time of loss.

Jordin Kare is an ex-astrophysicist, a former freelance rocket scientist, the inventor of two different interstellar propulsion schemes plus a system for shooting down mosquitos with laser beams, and (at this writing) #27 on the Top 100 Inventors list at Oh, yes, and a filker -- he's been filking since 1975. He published the original Westerfilk Collection in 1980, and was one of the partners in Off Centaur Publications from 1981 thru 1987. He's published two albums of his own filk, Fire In The Sky and Parody Violation, and expects to start on a third shortly after the widespread crystallization of H2O in Hades. He's particularly proud that Buzz Aldrin, interviewed on NBC after the loss of Columbia , chose to to express himself by quoting lyrics from Fire In The Sky:

Though a nation watched her falling/Yet a world could only cry
As they passed from us to glory/Riding fire in the sky.
