    ^ As his site seems to be down at the moment and I had a chance to read it before it went down:

    He suffered a stroke while on vacation in Florida. He has no feeling in his right leg and arm and problems with his sight.

    Aww hell.

    Sounds like they caught it fast. If they get the clot breaking drugs in him fast he could recover with minimal damage.

    Hopes and best wishes.

    Get well soon Peter.

    I remember reading Imzadi when it came out and thinking that it was the first Trek book that I had read that stood as a novel in its own right.

    I must read it again.

    I was reading Blind Man's Bluff this morning then got in the car to go to the movies and on the way I saw his tweet. Very distressing. I wish him the best.
