It is with great disappointment but complete understanding that Westercon must announce that Spider Robinson will not be able to fulfill his Guest of Honor commitment to the convention. Spider wrote:
Tell folks I had to tap out due to recent undisclosed health problems. That’s the shortest and truest I can say it. If anybody argues, tell ‘em I’m 66, I’ve been hospitalized six times in the last six months, and we’re working on it. And tell them I apologize.
Our thoughts and best wishes go with Spider for a speedy diagnosis and complete recovery.
