In Pursuit of Spenser: Mystery Writers on Robert B. Parker and the Creation of an American Hero, by Otto Penzler

My main thought as I was reading this was that I can now claim that I've read a festschrift, and for an author I had come to adore well before he died a couple of years ago.

This was a collection of essays on Parker, Spenser, some of the other characters and series Parker wrote, and even the TV show and movies based on his work. Fun. Not difficult reading. If you love the series(es), you'd enjoy the book.
