Humorous Novel by RBS Member Angie Brennan

Angie Brennan---humor-writer, coffee-drinker, and Robert Benchley fan---is happy to announce that her novel, MY LIFE BEHIND THE BRICK WALL, is now available as an e-book at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and

Vivian Craig's main problems aren't so much her mind-numbingly boring duties as editor at "The Brick Bulletin," her wary encounters with a hypochondriac receptionist,
her daily dose of melodrama from her romance novel-loving sister, her unsuccessful attempts to rebuff an egomaniacal suitor, or even her propensity for clumsiness. It's her blog.

The $2.99 e-book is available for Kindle, Nook, and other digital formats at Smashwords. Free sample chapters of MY LIFE BEHIND THE BRICK WALL are available at all three websites.

Angie's humor column, "Banter from the Burbs," ran in the Suburban Scene magazine for two years. Publishing credits also include"Exceptional People" magazine, "National Post," "Inside Annapolis," and "The Capital." Visit her website at for humor columns; spoof advice from Aunt Angie, Domestic Docent; cartoons; comic verse; and more.

Judging Begins in 2010 Benchley Humor Competition

The entries in the 2010 Robert Benchley Society Humor Award Competition are avaiable for viewing on our website at The preliminary judges will be narrowing it down to the top ten by the end of this month and the final announcement of the winner will follow shortly thereafter.

I apologize to the entrants who have been awaiting our action. Please understand that we are a small group of volunteers that run this and, unfortunately key volunteers in this process have experienced serious illness, job loss, and other disruptions over the past months that have severely limited our ability to carry on as promptly as in past years. The process is now "back on track" and we all look forward to finding out who this year's winner's are.
