Norman Spinrad, anarchist science fiction writer, to undergo surgery for stomach cancer

Science fiction legend Norman Spinrad (author of, among other things, the very first episode of Star Trek, I think one that was never produced) is about to undergo surgery for stomach cancer, today. He talks frankly of the procedure.

Norman Spinrad came up during my research for Mythmakers and Lawbreakers because he’s an anarcho-syndicalist, and many of his novels directly reflect that. So here’s to one of our own, and hoping to the various minor gods who look after radicals in surgery that all goes well.
