Having learned that one of my very favorite authors, Rob Thurman, would not be at DragonCon, I got cranky. Then I found out she’d been in a terrible accident and had been in the ICU for a week.
Then I felt like an asshole.
The official updates is that there has been an improvement in her condition recently and that she may be taken off the ventilator soon. Her website is giving sporadic updates – and that’s so much better than nail-biting – saying that the best thing her fans can do is buy her books and tell your friends. I’ve already got them all, but I’m sort of considering buying another round of them (or at least a couple of them) and donating them to Goodwill or the library.
Guys, it’s $7.99. It’s not gonna break the bank.
And, Rob, if you ever read this, thoughts & prayers. Your Reavers love you.
