Peter David

Peter David has been a long time favorite of yours truly.  The man writes.  He writes comics, short fiction, novels, video games, essays, articles, TV shows, films, and probably in several other vehicles that stories are delivered in.  He is a self-proclaimed, “Writer of Stuff” and, as we have already established, he’s one of my favorites.  I first became aware of Mr. David’s work with his run on, “The Incredible Hulk” back in the early nineties.  His, “Future Imperfect” added an element of time travel where the modern smart Hulk flashes forward to a time where the world is ruled by a despotic future version of himself, the Maestro.  Great stuff.  I still dust that off for the joy of reading it.  There really is too much for me to list here.  I will, therefore, point you towards my favorite second brain, Wikipedia, for further details on Mr. David and his body of work:  

On December 30th, while on vacation with his family in Florida, Mr. David suffered a stroke.  He has been in the hospital ever since and the right side of his body has been starting to respond to rehab.  The good people over at SciFi Pulse put this together on how he is doing and what WE can do to help:

My sincerest thoughts and prayers are with him and his family for a full and rapid recovery.  Please consider showing him some love.  I’m just about to order Parts I & II of, “Pulling up Stakes” from either Crazy 8 Press or Amazon.  You can also look right here: little bit helps when it comes to medical bills.

All the best, Mr. David ~ get well soon!
