    Scary stuff, I try to be more careful now because I'm the type who also would tend to "soldier on" and fail to heed the warnings.

    I hope everything turns out ok for him. He's one of my favorite comic writers.

    Classic Peter David. I'm glad he still got his incredible sense of humor, even in the face of such a crisis. Again, best wishes to him and his family in this difficult time. And may their new year yet turn out to be a happy one.

    Here's hoping for a speedy recovery. I've been a fan for years, and his New Frontier series is the main reason I'm still a Trek fan.

    I'm glad the stroke does not appear to have impacted his personality/memory/thought-processes. It sucks for a writer to be stuck using just one hand (for any length of time), but it could have been a lot worse. My best wishes to the family, and I wish him a speedy recovery.

    This is easily overcome at this point. Get a digital recorder and dictate your stories, then hire an assistant to type up your dictation.

    It may be an adjustment, but he can continue to work. I know without my work I would be lost.
