Many folk here will know of Duncan Lunan - of Scotland's ASTRA group and a writer of some speculative space books ?

I have learned - through a colleague - that he was unprovocably stabbed with a knife repeatedly in the arms and back in Glasgow a wee while ago. He recovered from that incident only to be stabbed again by a different person - again in Glasgow in the arms and back again - some weeks later! I understand that he is again recovering.

I hope you will join me in wishing Duncan a safe recovery and to keep up his interests in space flight

I wish him a speedy and full recovery. I hope he doesn't lose his interest in space flight.

Thats terrible, our best wishes from the left side of the pond. A tad strange too, unique attacks done twice like that as those are not areas normally utilized. Any idea what provoked these attacks?

Poor Duncan, he must be so scared now, I hope they can stop the attacks! He's obviously a strong guy; hopefully with our good wishes, he'll stay that way and be able to heal well.

I trust that he will be fully recovered soon.

By any chance was he walking the streets of Glasgow in a Celtic United jersey?

Thanks for all you well wishes for Duncan

I'll pass them onto my friend in Scotland for forwarding to Duncan.

I do not know if attacks were provoked - I don't think so from the tone of the letter my friend sent.
