Jim Butler

Jim Butler’s most glamorous writer-type jobs were as the weekend doorman at the original Bitter End and as the publicist for the real “Batman” (Adam West on ABC).  As a reminder of his misspent youth he still gets the occasional royalty check (usually about 37 cents) for lyrics recorded by Cass Elliot and the Big Three, The Bitter End Singers, or The Serendipity Singers.  As the movie and miniseries publicist for ABC he also wrote a book about the filming of “The Winds of War” and interviewed a few hundred actors.  He lives in New York; this is his first published fiction.  (Press releases don’t count.)
