Gene Wolfe Recovering from Heart Surgery

Author Gene Wolfe is recovering from open heart surgery on Thursday, April 24. Suffering from shortness of breath, Wolfe went to his doctor who recommended an echocardiogram. During the procedure, a leaking mitral valve was discovered. Wolfe then underwent a double bypass and valve repair. According to daughter Teri Goulding, Wolfe is up and walking, and “his mind is as sharp as a tack.” The family plans to have Wolfe moved to a rehab facility by midweek.

In the May issue of Locus we mistakenly report that Wolfe had an angioplasty. The information above is accurate. We were unable to correct the note in print before the issue went to press, and we regret the error.
