By John King Tarpinian: Sometimes you get lucky. I happened to be going over to my neighborhood bookshop, Mystery and Imagination, to show them an article in the current Los Angeles Magazine, which just happened to have a quote by Guillermo in it. As I was in front of the bookshop there was Guillermo, he waved at me, we shook hands and came into the bookshop. He was home for Christmas, taking a break from his duties in Canada. While Guillermo was in the shop he took the liberty to sign a couple dozen books of his the shop had in stock. More copies of his newest book, Cabinet of Curiosities, a set of the new Penguin Horror series he edited and some first editions of The Strain. The Strain was one of the things he has been working on in Canada. One of the nicest men you’d want to meet.
