That dpkg search is a great thing to know about! So I just went through
the install process, and it turns out I already have the files in
question. I just haven't gotten them working yet. The website for sffms
says I need to put the following into my doc:

\author{Lois McMaster Bujold}
Your story goes here.

Which seems encouragingly simple, but I'm a little confused about using
this LaTex markup in the context of an org document. Org has its own
markup to pass to latex for these I think, like #+AUTHOR. Is there
a similar one for \documentclass ?

Thanks again!
