On 30 December, Peter David announced he had suffered a stroke, writing on his blog: “We were on vacation in Florida when I lost control of the right side of my body. I cannot see properly and I cannot move my right arm or leg. We are currently getting the extent of the damage sorted out and will report as further details become clarified.”
Following up on the blog on the 31st, his wife Kathleen writes “We have a diagnosis, which is a small stroke in the Pons section of his brain…. He has lost most of the use of his right arm, his right leg is incredibly weak, the vision in his right eye is blurry, and the right side of his face is drooping slightly. But the brain is there with all its quips and quick retorts. He has had the nurses laughing a lot.”

We here at SFScope are all wishing Peter a speedy and easy recovery, and keeping him and his family in our thoughts.
