All The More Reason


I’m a big fan of language!

It looks like the expression “fan of him” is also quite popular as “fan of his”. As best as I can guess, because it makes sense to say “I’m a big fan of his work” then it could easily be reduced to simply “I’m a big fan of his” although in that second case the “his” feels like it’s hanging a little since it doesn’t seem to be referring to anything.
