Robert Sheckley, whose combination of comedy and science fiction is criminally underrated (and whose work inspired Douglas Adams), is in critical condition in Russia. Apparently, Sheckley went to Odessa to attend a science fiction writing forum and suffered from a respiratory insufficiency. What’s worse is that there seems to be a major struggle to get Sheckley into a state clinic.
I certainly hope Sheckley pulls through.
