About the Author:

John Simpson is a Vietnam Era Veteran, former Police Officer of the Year, a Federal Agent, a Federal Magistrate, an armed bodyguard to Saudi Royalty, a senior Federal Government executive, and recipient of awards from the Vice President of the United States and the Secretary of Treasury. John feels that for too long fiction writers neglected gay men. John writes entertaining, enjoyable, and enthralling fiction centered on the lives and lifestyles of gay men. John allows his readers to see life through gay mens' eyes. And just like real life, John's characters have active and exciting sex lives. .John lives with his partner of 36 years who he legally married in 2008, and their three Scottish Terriers.

Review:

"OED 4.0 is undoubtedly the best incarnation of the OED to appear on CD-Rom ... It's so useful - not to mention addictive - that you will probably want to set it to launch automatically when you switch your computer on."

--John Garth, Daily Mail
