News comes to me that Nebula Award-winning author Eugie Foster has gotten a rather unpleasant surprise in the form of a fast-growing tumor in her sinuses — cancer, in other words. Here’s her write-up with the details. She’s prepping for surgery even as you read this.
The good news is that she does have medical insurance, which will cover much of her costs. The less-than-good news is that even with medical insurance, she is on the hook for quite a lot of out-of-pocket costs. To help defray those, she’s reminding people of the work she has available for sale, both collections and individual short stories. She’s a very fine writer (note that Nebula win up there), so her work is well worth your time. Also, if you’re so inclined, she has a way for you to donate to her directly.
Check out her work and consider helping her out. And if you do — thanks.
