I'm just popping in to pass on some sad news. Wilum Pugmire has been hospitalised in Seattle and the prognosis is sadly not looking good.

This is very worrying. Wilum was online a few days ago and said he was very unwell. He's a deeply talented writer and a very likeable individual.

Oh Lord, that's bad, but his comments are amazingly heartening, I think - they remind me of things Bob Bloch said to me.

Good grief...this is terrible news. I only recently discovered his fiction, and it's a joy. He's a lovely man, too.

Jessica Salmonson spoke to Wilum yesterday. She says: "He said to tell everyone the official diagnosis is "severe heart trauma." He's expected to be able to return home Tuesday. His plan is to change his diet and a few other bad habits and make the effort to live a while longer yet. As of the moment there's no guarantees but no reason to give up. "
So, let us all cross fingers and hope.

He's out of hospital and he's put this video on YouTube:-

Hope Wilum feels much better soon. I've enjoyed watching his youtube posts over the last few years. Can't get to them at the moment with limited access.

That's sad to hear! I met him some years ago at Horror Con in SF. A sweet guy! Be well, Wilum!
