Rick Norwood was a comic book letterhack in the Silver Age, with letters in early issues of Fantastic Four and Green Lantern. His letter about science fiction fandom in Mystery in Space introduced many comic book readers to fandom for the first time. In 1976 he founded Manuscript Press, which has published books by Hal Clement, R. A. Lafferty, and the last Rick Brant book by Hal Goodwin. He began writing science fiction in 1982, and has had stories published in Analog, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, and other magazines and anthologies. For Fantagraphics, he has edited Captain Easy and Buz Sawyer reprints, and for IDW he wrote the introduction to their reprint of Dick Moores Gasoline Alley.

He was a Cape Canaveral to see Apollo 11 lift off for the moon. He was a member of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton in 1980. His day job is teaching mathematics at East Tennessee State University.
