Sometimes my job is awesome

So a guy walks into my bookstore this morning -

Oh, wait. This sounds like a dirty joke. It's not, I swear.

So this guy walks into my bookstore this morning, and the first book he picks up is my own A Hallowe'en Anthology. He starts a stack on the front counter with it. The stack builds quickly. He stays for two hours and buys six boxes of books, including every book we have by Theodore Sturgeon. We talk about Sturgeon, we talk about Halloween, and he ends up also buying The Halloween Encyclopedia.

The guy was Guillermo del Toro.
