About the Author
Renowned Shakespearean scholar Dr. Marshall Emerson whose specialty was the bard’s The Tempest could never be spotted walking the grounds of McMaster University
without the precious 1861 folio edition of Shakespeare’s works clutched
in his hands.
Decades after his death, when McMaster University library and
bookstore staff begin producing replica versions of the text on a newly
acquired Espresso Book Machine, Emerson, who was also known as "Professor Prospero," returns from the dead, intent to put a stop to this “desecration” of his precious text.
This short story of approximately 6000 words originally appeared in
the book CAMPUS CHILLS (2009) and was written by McMaster Graduate
Kimberly Foottit and Mark Leslie, whose alter ego ran the Espresso Book
Machine at the McMaster bookstore from 2008 until 2011.
