Turns out last month's stroke
was a symptom of a greater illness. While there's still some time to go before we have to worry about Discworld substitutions
, it has been a pretty tough year for fantasy authors.
The instances of rare diseases showing up in otherwise healthy fantasy authors who should hopefully still have years and years of stories in them is distressing. If these things come in threes, who's next?
