Ron Drummond is the author of "The Sonic Rituals of Pauline Oliveros"; "The Frequency of Liberation", a critical fiction about the novels of Steve Erickson; "Ducré in Euphonia: Ideal and Influence in Berlioz"; "Broken Seashells,", an essay/meditation on ancestral memory and the music of Jethro Tull ); and the introductory essays for the 8-volume edition in score and parts of The Vienna String Quartets of Anton Reicha; among numerous other essays, fictions, poems, reviews, and interviews. More recent publications include a short story, "Troll," published in Black Clock, and a performance essay on the Tokyo String Quartet.
As an editor, Drummond has worked extensively with the novelist and critic Samuel R. Delany, most notably on the essay collections The Straits of Messina (1989), Longer Views (1996), the novel They Fly at Çiron (1993), collection Atlantis: Three Tales (1995), a novel-in-progress, Shoat Rumblin (2002), and Dark Reflections (2007); he was the publisher of Çiron and Atlantis. Drummond is also a four-time proofreader and editorial redactor of Delany's most famous novel, Dhalgren (Bantam Books, 1974; Wesleyan University Press, 1996; Vintage Books, 2001); because of his work, the Third and later printings of the Vintage edition of this typographically complex novel are considered by the author to be the most accurate rendering of the text ever published. Delany writes, "Ron's editorial acumen is the highest I have encountered in a professional writing career of more than thirty years." In March 2006, Drummond gave a talk on "Editing Samuel R. Delany" at a two-day international academic conference on Delany's life and work held at SUNY Buffalo.
Drummond has also worked extensively with novelist John Crowley, publishing Crowley's short story collection Antiquities (1993), editing the novels Dæmonomania (2000) and Endless Things (2007), and the electronic versions of Ægypt and Love & Sleep (ElectricStory.com, 2002). He is currently preparing a 25th anniversary edition  of Crowley's 1981 novel Little, Big, featuring the art of Peter Milton, an essay by Harold Bloom, and the typographical design of John D. Berry. Crowley writes, "Ron's work [on Dæmonomania] was at one end meticulous and painstaking, and at the other large-spirited and helpful with the biggest questions of the book."

An independent scholar, Drummond is an excavator and advocate of the music of several Czech composers of the Classical Era, especially Anton Reicha (1770–1836) and Pavel Vranický (1756–1808). He spearheaded the movement to restore Reicha's string quartets to the repertoire, co-editing (with Henrik Löwenmark) the first edition in 200 years of the eight Vienna quartets, and facilitating several modern Reicha premieres by string quartets in the U.S. and Europe, most notably of the G major quartet Opus 48 No. 2 in a concert by the Coull Quartet at the 2003 Cambridge [UK] Music Festival.
In the 1970s, Drummond collaborated with his father, physicist James E. Drummond, on a non-geostationary system for satellite-based solar power collection and transmission; their papers on the topic were included in conference proceedings of the IECEC and in the published committee hearings of the Space Science and Technology Subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives (1976).
From September 2002 through June 2003, Drummond created an original design for the World Trade Center Memorial called A Garden Stepping into the Sky. The design was the focus of a documentary by the award-winning independent filmmaker Gregg Lachow and was featured on CNN.com and Seattle's KOMO-TV News. Drummond submitted the Garden Steps to the official international design competition for the WTC Memorial in June 2003; it was among the 5,200 submissions not chosen.
Ron Drummond lives in Troy, New York.
