    I saw on Facebook and followed up on Twitter where Mercedes Lackey collapsed at Gen Con yesterday and had to be rushed to the hospital. Her blood pressure was at dangerous levels, “she was in & out of consciousness & lucidity, but had vision trouble, slurring, & hallucinations.” They have ruled out a stroke, but don’t know what caused it.

     

    While I may not have read much by her the last few years (because real life) she will always remain one of my favorite authors. To me, the news of her collapsing, is almost as bad should the same thing ever happen to Melody. The two will always be intertwined for me as Melody’s gryphons are how I have always pictured Mercedes’ gryphons.

    I don’t know what happened to the original post. Damn phone and forums not being mobile friendly.

    I saw on Facebook and Twitter where Mercedes Lackey collapsed at Gen Con. Her blood pressure was in dangerous levels and “She is in & out of consciousness & lucidity, but has vision trouble, slurring, & hallucinations. She is improving, though.”

    She is one of my favorite authors (even if I haven’t been able to read much by her in the last few years because life is in the way) and the news of her collapsing is just as devastating should the same ever happen to Melody. Her work and Melody’s work will always be intertwined to me as Melody’s gryphons are how I have always pictured Mercedes’ gryphons.

    Oh I hope she recovers fully. I love her books and have several of her series. The Valdemar series is my “Read each winter tradition”!

    Looking for:
    "COSMIC SHIFT #1 ORIENTAL DRAGON" and "OCTOPUS TANUKI TEST PAINT #1"
