Good News For Spenser Fans

Thanks to Kristen at SmartPop Books, I will soon have my paws on a review copy of a Robert Parker tribute book called In Pursuit of Spenser. According to the Press Release:

"In 2010 the world lost iconic American writer Robert B. Parker, along with his greatest creation, Spenser. In celebration of both, Smart Pop is releasing In Pursuit of Spenser: Mystery Writers on Robert B. Parker and the Creation of an American Hero, an anthology of essays by those who knew Parker and Spenser best: his fellow mystery writers."

The book was edited by the great Otto Penzler, and contributors include Lawrence Block, Max Allan Collins, and Dennis Lehane.

My husband and I are Spenser fans from way back, so we'll both be excited to read these tributes to a great writer and reminisce about a great character.
