Novels & Novelists
R. Craig: While Phil and Bill traveled around New England promoting their books, they often found themselves on the same panels. They shared similar views on politics and religion, similar tastes in literature and movies, similar senses of humor. They had a lot of fun playing off each other, and privately, started calling these events "The Phil 'n' Bill Show." Phil and his writing will be missed deeply.
