I spent 3 days in the hospital. They’d have had me stay another if I wanted but I declined. Too tired and hurting to write a big thing. Later…

    Yeah! Good that you are out & recovering.
    I hate hospitals, they are full of sick people!

    I hope you are much better soon. Enjoy the spring. When you feel like writing write. If never again, I have enjoyed all of your stories more than once. Thank you for them. Ed

    You’ll be back to doing one armed pushups in no time! 😉
    Hope your recovery is swift and trouble free.

      Doing well. Pain dropping.

    I hope your recovery is quick and complete!

    Looking forward to the next book (or even short story) you grace us with release…

    Rest, Heal, Imagine…let your mind play while your body works to mend. Imagine all the ways you would be treated for this on Home and what the options for treatment would have been..

  16. Harry K March 14, 2024 at 3:29 pm #

    Glad to see you’re on the mend Mac. Hope you are back in the writing saddle soon.

    I send you good healing thoughts.

    Beyond buying your books, that’s all I can do. Thoughts and prayers. Please. Recover soon,

    I am glad that you survived the medical procedure, but also that you’re healing and the pain is lessening.

    At our age, mid-late 70’s, that’s as good as it gets!

    I truly appreciate the near future tales your mind has created. April and Family Law.


    The problem with factual science reporting is that there is only credible evidence reporting and no speculation on what might be discovered.

    Factual science says “we know” but are reluctant to speculate.

    Speculative science tales as you write are much appreciated!

    Go fast, two different means, but go fast!

    In my 2024 reality, I can only hope that some smart child in the next few hundred years discovers alternative realities to exceed the speed of light.

    Fantasy is good! And you tales are among the best!

    Thank you for imagining and writing about these alternative realities.

    Safe recovery, pain lessening rapidly, these are my hopes for you.

    Sadly it seems you are prescient. I see more things every week of the world going the way you’ve been predicting in your books for more than 10 years.

    Will immediately purchase anything you write and treasure it as I read and reread over the years.

    • Richard March 23, 2024 at 8:59 pm #

      Evening. My time 1854. I agree whole heartily with you about the conditions around the world. With Europe ramping up. Have been exploring alternate places to live. I’m in PRC the ( People’s Republic of Canada). Paraguay has the easiest options to gain entry that I’ve seen so far.

      I also send my wishes for Mr. Chandler’s quick recovery, and continued good health.

  19. Charlie March 17, 2024 at 11:06 pm #

    Much as I want the next book I’d rather you stay healthy so please take time to recover properly

  20. Delores March 20, 2024 at 6:13 pm #

    I hope you get better soon. Just being in the hospital takes a lot out of you. Then with major surgery on top, you are probably just exhausted. Hopefully the worst is over. Best of luck for your recovery and physical therapy.

  21. Brent March 26, 2024 at 12:10 pm #

    Hi Mac’,
    I hope your recovery and rehab are progressing well. I see you’re responding to posts so that is encouraging! I had reached out to you on “the others” account, but it didn’t seem like you were using that anymore and I wanted to wish you well in your recovery.
    Best wishes and positive thoughts,

  22. Vera March 27, 2024 at 3:12 pm #

    Sending lots of love and healing vibes your way for a speedy recovery.

  23. Mike Morrow March 29, 2024 at 12:02 am #

    Wishing you all the best and a speedy recovery!

  24. JAMES March 30, 2024 at 12:59 pm #

    Physical therapy regime?

    • Mac March 30, 2024 at 1:56 pm #

      Eleven weeks. Two done already.

  25. Pan April 5, 2024 at 2:25 am #

    Hope you are feeling better sir. Please take care of yourself. You are a treasure. Keep writing. Thank you for an amazing journey into your mind.

  26. Emmy April 5, 2024 at 11:55 pm #

    I just had surgery too Mac! I got a new eye! I can read your books again 😀

    • Mac April 15, 2024 at 4:41 pm #

      very nice

  27. Don April 24, 2024 at 6:35 am #

    Glad you survived and hope you have a good result and rapid recovery to enjoy not being in pain.

  28. Leo April 25, 2024 at 7:11 pm #


    Please, an update on how your recovery is going.


    • Mac May 6, 2024 at 1:52 pm #

      No more office PT – just on me. I have better range of motion than they expected. They seemed a little scared I’d hurt myself when I suggested a hand weight instead of just empty handed. It’s been easy except the day after surgery.

      • Teresa May 7, 2024 at 6:21 am #

        So glad to hear from you again!

  29. JAMES May 6, 2024 at 4:53 pm #

    I am sure that we are all glad to hear that you’re doing better than expected!
