Pohl is still alive and cogent, but he is not exactly well. His primary disability is severe arthritis in the fingers,which prevents him from typing. He can only peck out letters with the tip of one finger, so he doesn't answer a lot of e-mail or post on boards like this one. He invests his remaining stamina in writing for publication, which is admirable. He has been talking about a memoir (a la Jack Vance), which I endorse; what's one more SF novel in a long string of them, when an autobiography would be unique.

He isnt very ill at least,suffering. I work with old,dementia patients. So from my perspective being 90 and still being able to do what you want like writing is a win.

Not many of us can be relative well at 90 or even reach that age.
