Orson Scott Card Suffers Mild Stroke

Author Orson Scott Card had a small stroke on New Year’s Day, 2011. According to Card’s official website, he is “now back home, retraining his brain so that the fingers of his left hand strike the keys he’s aiming for. He will not be responding to most e-mails because his typing time must be devoted to finishing his fiction.” Card’s site says that he will “have a full recovery.” His speech is unimpaired, and he still plans to conduct radio and taped interviews, but is not planning any public appearances or travel “for the forseeable future”. Instead he plans to spend the next several months writing at home.
