Thanks for your generosity!

Earlier this week, our guest of honor, David Gerrold, posted a request on Facebook for help paying for a critical operation for his son. This was referred to us earlier today, and this post was going to pass on David’s request.

But it now appears that David has been a bit overwhelmed by the generosity of his friends and friends-of-friends, and as of half an hour ago he has just posted:

“Okay, we have officially overshot the target.
Everybody please stop sending money! (I can’t believe I just typed that sentence.)
Sean is amazed. I’m overwhelmed. Except when he’s overwhelmed and I’m amazed.
More shortly.”

We know this request was passed through many channels. We are grateful to members of our community, and to everyone else who is donating, to help Sean with this critical and time-sensitive emergency.

    I used to correspond a great deal with Mr. Gerrold around the time The Martian Child came out. He’s an amazing Dad and human being.

    I am so extremely grateful that folks stepped up and fixed this. I know his son means the world to him (and I cannot imagine what it would be like to have your son sick and to feel like you can’t do anything). I am working toward getting myself to the Con so I can see him in person.
