Spider Robinson, winner of three Hugos and a Nebula, was born in the Bronx and raised on Long Island, and has been a Canadian resident for 30 years. Holder of a bachelor's degree in English from the State University of New York, he worked as a folksinger and journalist before publishing his first story in Analog in 1973. He now lives on an island outside Vancouver, B.C., where he raises and exhibits hopes.
Over ten of Robinson's books are set in Callahan's Place (including Callahan's Crosstime Saloon and Callahan's Key), a fabulous tavern founded by a time traveler, where puns flow as freely as beer, and smell far worse. Robinson has contributed a regular editorial column, "Future Tense," to Canada's national newspaper, The Globe & Mail, since 1995. In 2000, he released Belaboring the Obvious, a CD of original music with the legendary Amos Garrett ("Midnight at the Oasis") on lead guitar, and in 2001 he was a celebrity judge at the Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam.
