Harlan Ellison, 80, suffered a stroke on October 9, 2014, and is recovering in the hospital. His wife Susan Ellison posted October 12 at Ellison Webderland:
I will make this brief. A couple of days ago Harlan had a stroke. He’s in the hospital. His right side is paralyzed.
He’s comfortable–as possible. We will keep you up-to-date with his progress.
With all kindness –Susan
He is reportedly resting and recovering well.
