Authors Guild director diagnosed with ALS posts his medical records online




Although incredibly sad and devastating, I hope that his putting it all out there serves some good, and elicits an idea for a cure or treatment from a brilliant mind.


Thanks, Xeni! One of my children may be carrying the genes for ALS (my spouse’s grandfather died of it).

Dr. Schmid’s steroid therapy information is especially interesting.


…is this the same Author’s Guild that had a suit against Google for their attempt to include orphan works on Google Books? I guess that’s pretty irrelevant. At any rate, the disease sucks, and I wish him the best, given the prognosis.
