    Peter is an extraordinary contribution to the pagan community, both locally & worldwide. We are blessed that he is resilient, & that he received appropriate medical attention very quickly.

    I dearly hope Mr. Paddon makes a speedy and complete recovery. I am an enormous fan of Pendraig Publishing; lots of stuff gets published there that would never see the light of day in other, more mainstream Pagan presses.

    Positive, healing thoughts to Mr. Paddon.

    Thanks to all the prayers and support Peter is awake and doing much better now, but he is still far from well at this time.

    Peter is the publisher of my book SCOTTISH HERBS AND FAIRY LORE I hope everyone who reads this will light a candle, stir the cauldron, or say a prayer for his quick recovery!

    Update: He is doing better and smiling and making jokes. It will be a gradual recovery, but it looks good as of now. He is stable enough that he is being transferred to another hospital. Keep up those prayers folks, it is working!
