I only encountered him personally once, on a panel the first time I attended a con (Dragon Con, 1988 or so?). I thought he was an arrogant jerk. I’ve heard from others that he could be quite nice, so maybe it was some kind of schtick. I did enjoy all the Thieves World books, despite their unrelenting darkness.
He was scheduled to be at MarCon this weekend, so it seems his death was sudden and unexpected. I wish the best to his family and friends.
One thought on “R.I.P. Robert Asprin”
He was arrogant and boastful. Sometimes rightfully so.
But deep down was a kind heart. And a bit of mischievious little boy.
I’ll miss sitting with him, drinking, flirting, and sharing stories.
