So being in the hospital kind of stinks, especially around the new year, especially if you’ve been there a while.
My friend, neighbor, and long-time SFF writer and music critic Tom Purdom has been in the hospital / rehab since August 5, when he was hit from behind while walking on a Schuykill River trail. This isn’t really news – it’s been in Locus (though he’s moved rooms since).
Tom’s been writing SF since the 1950s and I shared an in Asimov’s with him this spring.
A fellow friend and neighbor, Michael Swanwick, has been keeping everyone posted about his conversations with Tom lately.
He’s hopefully coming home soon, but Michael & I have a wish to ask of you in the meantime.
If you’re putting together holiday cards, new years cards, or get-well cards maybe consider sending one Tom’s way ? … and if not to Tom, then maybe to someone else who’s stuck in the hospital?
