Hard Day for Gaming Pros

Yesterday, two prominent gaming professionals had rough days.

First, Julia Martin (former editor for GDW and TSR and editor and webmistress for Wizards of the Coast) had a stroke. It appears to have been a minor one, and she’s already on the mend. I can barely imagine how terrifying it must have been for her and her husband. After all, she works with words, and it smacked her in her speech center.

Second, some thugs assaulted and robbed Steve Jackson in his own neighborhood. Apparently he’s fine, although his injuries merited a trip to the ER and some kind of serious pain meds.

Here’s to brighter, better days for both Steve and Julia!
