Oh, hells' bells. I just heard, via News From Mark Evanier, that smart guy Peter David has suffered a stroke. David's "stuff" (that's what he calls himself, "writer of stuff") has included some of my favorite books and comics over the years, and his column for the Comics Buyers' Guide was a must-read.
I also posted fairly regularly on his America Online message board, back when there were such things, and he once flattered me by asking me if he could quote an idle remark I made there, in said column.
As Mark says, this is one of those moments when all one can do is wish him a speedy recovery, which I certainly do.
