Bill Barnes loves librarians, show tunes, and meat. He can count his toes without taking off his shoes. Over the past thirteen years, he has tried to convince Unshelved co-creator Gene Ambaum that the meaning of "partnership" is doing what he says 99% of the time. He can often be seen wandering the floor at trade shows playing "The Final Countdown" on his ukulele Death Adder. In his spare time he draws Unshelved and writes a comic about the software industry, Not Invented Here. Follow @billba.
Gene Ambaum is a librarian, though now he lurks in the stacks more often than he works there. He is good at making fun of strange, difficult customers because he is the strangest, most difficult customer of all. See pictures of his cats on Twitter @ambaum.
