Elmore Leonard (1925-2013)

One of the best.  His style, his dialogue, his wit.  With the possible exception of Mickey Spillane, no one could match Elmore Leonard’s unique brand of writing.  He passed away yesterday, after suffering a serious stroke earlier this month.  He was 87.  Read his obituary in The New York Times.

I linked this before, and it’s worth reiterating now:  Elmore Leonard’s Ten Rules of Writing.
