Another possibile benefit of cataract surgery

I didn't realize how degraded my vision had become and how much it had affected my life. One thing I'm hoping is that I can get back to writing fiction. We'll see but I'm hopeful.

Aw sweet you're still alive. Just had someone recommend your books yesterday and your last post was from '11

I am with you. The surgery was scary but the results were awesome. You really don't realize was "clouding" your vision and your mind. Good for you!

If you'll be able to write fiction again, any thoughts on writing more Wizardry books, or finishing #6? :)

If you'll be able to write fiction again (which would be awesome!), any chance of more Wizardry stories, or finishing up #6?

I'll have my fingers crossed for you. My 98-year-old grandmother recently had cataract surgery, and she's able to see so much better now.

(Of course, I have selfish reasons for hoping you keep doing so well. I've never read anything quite like your Wiz Biz series, and I desperately want to read more!)

Hi Rick!

I am not sure if this is appropriate place to say this, but I would like to say Thank You for the series. I read the first book during a very dark time of my life; it helped me to keep my sanity.

I am very sad the sixth book is never going to be finished. All the best wishes to you and I hope your health will improve.

Well Rick, for starters I hope the cat surgery all turns out well. I have known some folks that have had it and they were all pleased. The big thing seems to be to follow the Dr.s advice, don't strain at doing ANYTHING. And I would really love to see some more works published (in whatever format) of the wizard series. I have enjoyed every one of them and would love to be able to read several more.

Good Luck,
Richard

I hope you do start writing again. I always enjoyed your Wizardry series, and I hope to see more from you one day.

I hope you do start writing again. I enjoyed your Wizardry series quite a bit in high school, and it would be great to see more from you.

Even if the surgery won't affect your fiction writing, Mr. Cook, I do hope it did help you. I've had the chance to read your Wizardry series recently and I can say they're some of the most engaging and fun books I've ever come across. Maybe it's because you're a geek writing about a super-geek for geeks. Either way, I'd like to say, Thank you so much for the opportunity to enjoy your stories.

And fingers crossed that your health gets better.

I am sorry if this is an inappropriate comment to this thread. I just found your WIZ series after buying the first one Wizard's Bane Kindle edition off Amazon. But for Wizardry Compiled on Baen Books, I see no other eBooks. I bough new paperbacks off Amazon and am waiting for them, but would love to be able to buy some e copies. Can you point me to where I might buy the rest? Thanks
