Great News!

5 Oct

Hi, everyone

As you know, ten or so days ago I went for a biopsy after the MRI scan revealed traces of something where the cancer was, a year ago.  (This area was treated with chemo, then blasted with radioactivity.)  The biopsy revealed that it was just dead flesh!  WhoHoo!

Obviously, the doctor was at pains to tell me that there might be something tiny left behind – I’m due for another CT scan in January – and there is a possibility that it might come back at a later date, but for the moment I’m clear.  As you can imagine, this is wonderful news!

And, in other news, I’m 13 chapters into The Ancient Lie.  Hope to get it done by the end of the month.

    That is great news Chris. The reason for the doctors attitude is once you have had any form of cancer, they actually keep an eye on it for the rest of your life even when treatment proves effective. Please accept my heartfelt good wishes for a long lasting recovery. You have quite an imagination and the talent to write it into your books. Thanks for those.

    You only need to keep beating this thing until they find better treatments, and then ultimately a cure.

    Glad to here things have improved, I feel proud that the product that the company I used to work invented is put to such good use, the first scanner looked nothing like the one you were in.

    Wonderful and congrats. I will not say you are my favorite author, but you’re one of them, and by far the most prolific. I keep having to find new authors because I (understandably) read faster than they write… But you are like Asimov. You write faster than most can read.
