Spider Robinson Cannot Attend

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.
