On the surface Peter David and I write very different types of fiction. I write Magical Realism – a blending of the ordinary and the extra-ordinary. David is a professional fanfic author.
But his work was such a huge part of my childhood, from his run on the Incredible Hulk to his Star Trek novels the name and work of Peter David have followed me in my adventures as a reader.
And don’t get me started on his original run on X-Factor for Marvel.
Recently, while on vacation, Peter David had a stroke. Hes recovering and apparently still writing.
But we all know how hospital bills, even with insurance, can pile up. As readers we can help by buying Peters books, especially his stuff from his publishing collective Crazy 8 Press. Through Crazy 8 he gets a larger percentage of the profits.
David’s writing was a big part of life as a reader. Lets help support his future.
