A message about author Aaron Allston


Yesterday, Del Rey author Aaron Allston underwent quadruple bypass surgery. Aaron was on tour, promoting his latest book Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi: Outcast when he suffered a heartattack and was admitted to a hospital in Texas. He is currently in intensive care, but stable. Our thoughts are with him.
Aaron’s family has set up a blood donation sponsorship. If anyone in the Dallas area would like to donate blood, you can go to the National Blood Exchange or Carter BloodCare. Say that you are donating blood for Aaron Allston, patient of Carter Blood Care in Bedford, TX, and give his sponsor number: SPON 047786.
Please send any well-wishes to:
Aaron Allston
c/o Del Rey Books
1745 Broadway
New York, NY 10019
But please DO NOT send any perishable items or flowers, as Aaron will not be able to receive anything this week.

    Very sad! I will keep him in my thoughts for a swift and total recovery!

    Club Jade just got an update from Aaron’s family. You can donate anywhere in the Carter system throughout Texas (at the website above) and they will give you a coupon to mail and put towards Aaron’s account.

    Sad to hear. I just saw him in Chicago last week. Hope he recovers soon.

    Man that’s really sad! I really hope Aaron pulls through and gets better soon! Though I’m sure with everyone saying a prayer for him and sending out healing thoughts and with the love and help of his family, he will.
