Frank Simon, a friend of Earl Nelson, wrote only one book which became a cult classic.
He was also a friend of Richard Kaufman, who related in Genii about Simon having a debilitating stoke in 1985. He was paralyzed on his right side, unable to speak clearly or read. At the time of his stroke, Frank had been living in New York City for a couple of years and was planning a second book. Unfortunately he was hospitalized before he could write it.
