Spider Robinson has withdrawn as one of Westercon 68’s guests of honor. Chair Ron Oakes released this statement from Spider:

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.

Oakes responded, “Our thoughts and best wishes go with Spider for a speedy diagnosis and complete recovery.”

Westercon 68 takes place July 2-5 in San Diego.

  1. As disappointing as this must be for everyone involved, it’s more disappointing that he had to anticipate it would cause an argument. Fannish entitlement is the worst.
