As you may know by now, fan favorite Star Trek, sci-fi, fantasy, comic book and TV writer Peter David ("PAD") suffered a stroke over the holidays. Half of his body was impacted including his eye sight and mobility. He is improving and walked yesterday! I have written up a column talking about a debt I feel I owe PAD, my literary journey with him, and also share information from his wife Kathleen about how we can help PAD rehab in peace today. The piece includes a lot about my love of ST prose and PAD's contribution in patricular. Here is the piece. Let me know what you think. Happy New Year.
