Dinner with William Browning Spencer

We had so much fun with Resume with Monsters that we took the author, Bill Spencer, out to dinner. Eight of us met Bill at Senor O’Brien’s, where we devoured their delicious nachos. We learned a lot of secrets about Resume with Monsters: “I wrote it in four months;” “If you think this cover was bad, you should have seen the first one;” “My editor had never heard of Lovecraft or Cthulhu before he read this book;” “My typesetter friends complained about the kerning on the cover.” Talking to the author about his work was fascinating; we’ll likely invite the next local author whose book we discuss (this means you, Brad Denton) to dinner with us.
