11th December 2007
I would have liked to keep this one quiet for a little while, but
because of upcoming conventions and of course the need to keep my
publishers informed, it seems to me unfair to withhold the news. I have
been diagnosed with a very rare form of early
onset Alzheimer's, which
lay behind this year's phantom "stroke".
We are taking it fairly philosophically down here and possibly with a
mild optimism. For now work is continuing on the completion of Nation and the basic notes are already being laid down for Unseen Academicals.
All other things being equal, I
expect to meet most current and, as far
as possible, future commitments but will discuss things with the various
organisers. Frankly, I would prefer it if people kept things cheerful,
because I think there's time for at least a few more books yet :o)
PS I would just like to draw attention to everyone reading the above
that this should
be interpreted as 'I am not dead'. I will, of course,
be dead at some future point, as
will everybody else. For me, this
maybe further off than you think - it's too soon to tell.
I know it's a very human thing to say "Is there anything I can do", but in this case I
would only entertain offers from very high-end experts in brain
THIS IS THE AREA OF THE
SITE WHERE WE WILL TRY
TO KEEP YOU UP-TO-DATE WITH ALL OF THE LATEST
IF YOU QUOTE ANY OF THE
NEWS / INFO LISTED HERE ELSEWHERE, PLEASE
