I’ve spent many years compiling a database index of all of Patrick F. McManus’s humorous essay collections and novels. Currently there are 13 collections of his essays (15 if you count “Whatchagot Stew” and “The Deer on a Bicycle“) and 5 Sheriff Bo Tully mysteries.
If you’re like me it’s quite a challenge to find which books your favorite stories are in, and Where’s the One About the Bobcat? lets you find them in minutes.
It’s saved many hours of searching for me, and for Patrick and his family as well.
