Dawson and Williams had a little glitch on the highway of life, quite literally. On May 27th CA Dawson and her publisher Gord Williams were involved in a near death experience on the Coquihalla Highway near Merritt, B.C.
Dawson was in the driver's seat, Williams was the passenger. They were stopped at the scene of another accident when the car they were in was rear-ended by a semi that failed to stop!
After the dust settled (and the car they were in stopped flying through the air) they were eventually cut out of the car by Firefighters from Merritt using the Jaws of Life.
Yehhhh for advanced technology even if it isn't of alien extraction. (ESPECIALLY since it is isn't of alien extraction!) Yehhhh for the Firefighters of Merritt (and all the other life savers on the road that day.
Dawson was air-lifted to Royal Inlands Hospital in Kamloops. Williams took his jolly time getting there by more antiquated land based means but both are making what they hope will be a full recovery.
Numerous planned appearances were cancelled while Dawson lolly-gagged around, (sleeping mostly) over the course of the summer.
"What summer?" Dawson asks. "Was there a summer?"
"Well there was and you would have seen it if you hadn't been asleep all the time."
So, Vancouver was cancelled. And the World Con was cancelled but the good news is Necronomicon is full steam ahead!
We'll see you at Necronomicon on October 21.
